Last night the Hamilton County Democratic Party held its annual county wide dinner . Our guest speaker was Senator Joe Donnelly, D- Indiana. A few points from him concerning the Republican Health Care Senate Bill. The Conservative four who have said they will vote against, will vote for in the end. They are just saying they are against it for home town press. Right now he believes the vote will be 50/50 with VP Pence breaking the tie in its favor.
He did point out that if you are making $30,000 a year and live
in Indiana and are between the ages of 40 and 55 your health insurance
premiums will jump to $16,000 a year. Effectively ending your coverage.
If you have a pre-existing condition you will be allowed to have and
continue coverage BUT the insurance companies will be allowed to have a
rider to cover that illness in effect forcing you out of insurance. Some
of these premiums will go up over $100,000.00 a year. To top this off
the proposed Republican tax reform provides mainly cuts to the top 1% of income
earners from the savings of Trumpcare. In his words this bill "is just
want to add one more note to the above: CRUEL- from my buddy
Webster--disposed to inflict pain and suffering: delighting in another's
suffering without mercy or pity.
So if you make less than $200,000 a year this will effect you. Don't think it won't. If you work for someone who provides medical coverage for its employees this will effect you. I am willing to bet that coverage will be ending soon, they also will not be able to afford buying your insurance. Don't forget any cost increase effects their bottom line.
If your over retirement age and covered by Medicare, they will be coming for you next, oh but wait they already have, if your have supplemental insurance your premiums will be going up 166%.
Also Congresswomen Susan Brooks has a 100% voting record to support the House version of this cruel Bill.
Lets make sure we remove Ms. Brooks and we re-elect Senator Donnelly in 2018.
