The Republicans have finally revealed their healthcare plan, the American Health Care Act. They want it passed by the end of March.
Worried? You should be.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE AMERICAN HEALTH CARE ACT
To bolster support for their plan, this week the White House emailed this to millions of Americans:
TELL THE WHITE HOUSE YOU SUPPORT OBAMACARE
Under the new Republican plan, 24 million Americans would lose their healthcare coverage. Flat tax credits would leave most people — to use comedian John Oliver's metaphor — as horrifically under-covered as a middle-aged man in an ill-fitting thong. The poor and elderly will suffer most. The only clear winners are the wealthiest Americans, who would see tax breaks of between $33,000 and $197,000.

Every year 100 million people worldwide are pushed into poverty and 150 million people suffer financial catastrophe because of out-of-pocket expenditure on health services. All UN Member States have agreed to try to achieve universal health coverage by 2030. If the Republican plan passes, the USA will once again be the only one of Earth’s thirty-three developed nations without universal health coverage.
