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.
