LETTER: Ryan Plan to Replace Affordable Care Act a Sham

The Ryan plan to replace Obamacare is a sham. Its being rushed thru Congress without the non partisan Congressional Budget Office estimating what the cost will be and how many people will be covered.
Some of its features are
:
1. 30% increase in health care premiums for people between the ages of 45 &64;
2. After 2020,Medicaid recipients will receive a flat allotment for the year.
For example, if the allotment is $ 2500.00 and you need a procedure that will cost $ 5,000.00,you will not have Medicaid pay for it.
3. tax cut for the wealthy;
4. defunding Planned Parenthood denying thousand of women from having cancer screening and other primary care services; and
5. taxing health care benefits which will harm lower income employees.
