Darrel Issa’s (R-Calif.) district office Tuesday, where they lay on the office’s front lawn and held up signs designed to look like tombstones. Roughly 300 demonstrators participated in Tuesday’s “die-in” at Issa’s office in Vista, California, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune . The protesters urged Issa to oppose the American Health Care Act, which is set to come up for a vote in the House on Thursday.  “We’re just here trying to stand up for the American people and affordable health care,” demonstrator Sandy Dildine told San Diego’s Fox 5. “The Republican plan is gonna make it worse.”  The bill, touted by House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), has drawn criticism from GOP moderates and conservatives. Members of the conservative Freedom Caucus believe the bill does not go far enough to repeal the health care provisions established by Obamacare, while more moderate members have raised ...

The Republican Health-Care Unraveling 22.3.2017 American Prospect
Michael Reynolds/picture-alliance/dpa/AP Images Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy discuss the House Republican's new health-care plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.  This is the first part of a two-part article. The full version appears in the Spring 2017 issue of The American Prospect under the title: “The Republican Health-Care Unraveling: Resist Now, Rebound Later.” This is the “resist” part. Subscribe here to the magazine. Imagine if Donald Trump had been a genuine populist and followed through on his repeated promises to provide health insurance to everybody and take on the pharmaceutical and insurance industries. Populists in other countries have done similar things, and Trump might have consolidated support by emulating them. Of course, Trump’s promises about health care weren’t any more genuine than his promises about Trump University. But even if he had been in earnest, he would have still faced a problem. Unlike right-wing populists ...

Being charged higher premiums for health insurance  or possibly not being able to access affordable health coverage at all if you are in your early 50s to mid 60s is just the tip of the iceberg of what older people can expect from President Donald Trump’s proposed health care agenda.  The Republican plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act is a sucker punch to the gut for this vulnerable and hard-to-insure age group, especially because it will no longer require big companies to  provide a group plan and will raise the ceiling on how much older workers  can be charged . But Trump’s budget announced Thursday delivered a second blow for older people. While funding for Defense, Homeland Security and Veterans Affairs is to increase, multiple programs that directly assist seniors are on the chopping block:  1. The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program. This program provides short-term aid to pay heating and cooling bills for 6.7 million people . Nearly one-third of households receiving this help have a ...
