#Trumpcare and Special Needs families

This is a really quick post because I’m very much concerned about the repeal of a Obamacare. This has nothing to do with politics, and I frankly don’t care who you voted for, because that’s your personal business. 

I know there are plenty of programs with the current health care system, but are we heading in the right direction? 

Here’s a side by side comparison by the LA Times. 
What I want to know is, are you concerned about how the repeal of Obamacare, and implementation of the current form of Trumpcare? 

Many special needs kids families are on some form of Medicaid, and with the proposed $834 billion cuts to Medicaid, Americans most vulnerable will be hit hard. 



If you are on Medicaid, are you worried about this impacting your health care? What about people with things like Autism, who rely on some form of Medicaid to cover the many services they need? 

Please share your thoughts and concerns below in the comments. Please be respectful to each other.. ☺

My husband hasn’t retired yet even though he’s 68. One big reason is the uncertainty over the ACA. Even with its problems, the ACA is much better than the ACHA. And my oldest son with Asperger’s could end up losing his Medicaid. I don’t understand why this new law should get implemented since it is only worse.

It has gotten as far as it has because the Republicans have to pass AHCA first so that they can later pass the tax breaks for the wealthy under Senate reconciliation rules — AHCA is just a stepping stone. That it removes 23 million people’s healthcare doesn’t matter as much to them as that the money saved from kicking people off Medicaid will make the budget forecasts look okay even with the big tax cut for the rich.
