You Break It, You Own It
This website is dedicated to the 20+ Million Americans who are at risk of having their health insurance taken away during the transition of Presidential power on January 20, 2017.
Synopsis - The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) was signed into law on March 23, 2010 by President Barack Obama. Ever since then it has become a political lightning rod. A majority of Democrats favor it, while a majority of Republicans oppose it.
Regardless of the partisan divide the simple fact remains that over 20+ million Americans, both Democrats and Republicans, get their health insurance through some aspect of the Affordable Care Act. To put that in perspective, that is nearly the equivalent of the entire population of Australia.
With that being said, President-Elect Donald Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the Speaker of the House Paul Ryan have all vowed to making the repeal of the Affordable Care Act their number one priority in 2017.
That means 20+ million American citizens are at risk of having their access to health insurance, and thereby their health care, ripped right out from underneath them in a reckless manner with no alternatives.
You may being saying to yourself, but wait, the Republicans have been saying they would "repeal and replace" the Affordable Care Act with something much better right?
Words without action are of little solace. While many Republicans have used the phrase "repeal and replace" for many years they have never proposed, presented or voted on one single Affordable Care Act replacement bill, even though the Republicans have had complete control of the House of Representatives since January of 2011.
Which is why this website has been created…
This website will present the following information:
(1.) A daily update as to whether the Republicans have presented any Affordable Care Act "replacement" bills.
(2.) A detailed record of any Senator who votes for the repeal of the Affordable Care Act without an actual alternative to replace it with, along with the number of Americans in their State who will lose access to their health insurance because of that vote.
