Don’t take away my safety net! I lost my COBRA coverage after a divorce at age 57, but was very fortunate to be able to get coverage with Obamacare in 2011. This was an enormous relief: I faced breast cancer at age 51-a pre-existing condition would have made me ineligible for coverage; or perhaps only eligible for extreme premiums and deductibles. I’m self-employed. Because of the ACA, I didn’t have to go through the anguish of searching for affordable coverage! In 2017 I pay what I was paying on employer-based health plan, and am so relieved to be covered at all! I helped hundreds of people in California enroll in Covered California. American families of all incomes are grateful to be insured. NO ONE SHOULD BE DENIED THE RIGHT TO AFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE! Repealing the ACA without a replacement is simply irresponsible and promises to have catastrophic consequences! Mend it, don’t end it.
What kind of country are we? It’s immoral to yank the rug out from so many millions of Americans who, like myself, have only recently been able to get affordable healthcare. We are the only “advanced nation” without this fundamental protection.
