As The GOP Gets Ready To Strip Millions Of Their Healthcare, Twitter Users Make One Final Outcry
The House of Congress is expected to vote Thursday on a GOP bill that will repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), but these Twitter users aren’t letting it happen without one final outcry.
According to the Congressional Budget office, the new bill slashes $880 billion in federal funding to Medicaid, something Trump promise wouldn’t happen during his campaign.
Back in June, 2015, Trump said, “Save Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security without cuts. Have to do it,” as he announced his candidacy.
Republicans are so desperate to get rid of the ACA, that they’re willing to take away healthcare from millions of people.
“Save Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security without cuts. Have to do it,” Trump said in June, 2015 as he announced his candidacy.
Here’s what Twitter users had to say.

I am over 5O on Medicaid. Even if I made more, I would not be able to afford insurance without the subsidies now being cut. No on #AHCA.

AHCA CUTS MEDICAID BY $880 BILLION. It's a reversal far more destructive than "read my lips" but hey, Trump's a liar, everybody knows that. pic.twitter.com/dp4qpFNERB

The GOP’s new healthcare bill, the American Health Care Act (AHCA), is not very popular among citizens. The AHCA changes financing for the program, which provides health coverage to low-income and disabled Americans.
The AHCA has already lost the first time the GOP brought it to light, and the new revised bill has already drawn concern from Senators from states where Medicaid was expanded.
Voting for the bill will occur on Thursday.
