In addition to photos circulating Twitter, politicians and citizens alike are voicing their concerns and reasons why we can not allow the Affordable Care Act to be repealed when Donald Trump takes office in less than a week. These rallies come just a couple of days after the US House of Representatives started the process this week to repeal Obamacare.
Trump was coy about his plan to convince Congress to pass his plan: "I think we will get approval". Elizabeth Warren on Sunday ripped Republicans and called them "reckless" for wanting to "repeal and run away" from the Affordable Care Act, the healthcare reform law also known as Obamacare.
Thousands gathered outside Faneuil Hall Sunday in support of the Affordable Care Act. "We haven't put it in quite yet but we're going to be doing it soon", Trump said.
Forbes noted that repealing the ACA now without establishing an alternative in its place would result in 22-30 million Americans becoming uninsured.
Some might also be wondering what would happen to people's health care plans who go through health care exchanges. They said there's too much on the line to get rid of it now.
The House voted 227 to 198 Friday afternoon to approve a budget bill that sets the stage to dismantle the Affordable Care Act.
While those in the health plan enrollment industry hope people will continue to keep their plans, their plans could look different next year.
"I can't help but think back to when we were debating this law in 2010". So people who have had gaps in their insurance are likely to be charged more for those pre-existing conditions, making it more hard for them to get the treatment that they need.
"Are you ready to fight in 2017 to defend the Affordable Care Act?" asked Markey. The measure passed 227 to 198, with no democrats supporting it and nine GOP members voting against it.
"It is a matter of life and death for those people to retain their health care".
"If we don't provide a credible replacement plan, my main concern is that there would not be gaps in coverage for people who are now subsidized". And we have to step in before things get even worse.
