Yesterday, the American Health Care Act (AHCA), a bill proposed by President Donald Trump and the GOP, narrowly made it through Congress. If approved by the Senate, the bill would repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
When the bill was first voted on in March, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said that it would result in 24 million more Americans losing insurance within a decade. This is partly because the bill greatly expands the list of pre-existing conditions that can impact someone's ability to receive insurance coverage. The list includes domestic violence and sexual assault.
And now, in an attempt to convince Senators to vote against the bill, those that would be affected are taking to Twitter to share their stories.
These were tough to read.
