GOP Congressmen Will Now Have To Deal With TrumpCare, Thanks To This Woman


Everyone seems to agree: The American Health Care Act is bad for Americans. Though the Congressional Budget Office has yet to release its projections on how many people would lose coverage, many are already enraged at the idea that states will be allowed to waive Obamacare's guaranteed coverage of people with pre-existing conditions. This will create higher insurance rates for almost everybody, but most especially the old and the sick.

Though it was less publicized, the bill also contains an amendment called The MacArthur Amendment, which allows members of Congress to retain Obamacare's coverage of pre-existing conditions even if their state waives out of it.
