Kansas City Congressman Cleaver Against 'Trumpcare' ACA Replacement Plan
The so-called Trumpcare plan is taking heat on both sides of the aisle as the current Administration learns the complexities of taking on the medical industrial complex.
Meanwhile, Kansas City's top ranking elected official offers this perspective:
“This latest proposal by the Republicans guts the Affordable Care Act and ends access to health care as we know it. This isn’t replacement, this is an elimination - snatching healthcare away from millions of Americans. This plan would cut Medicaid and force older Americans to pay more out of pocket. The only people who will benefit from this plan are the big insurance companies and the wealthy with extreme tax breaks. The purpose of the ACA was to ensure that all Americans regardless of income, age, or health status would be able to receive health care. This plan defeats that purpose, making our country sicker.”
