For the people crying about losing their Medicaid under the GOP healthcare bill, here are some facts CNN (Comedy News Network) and Chuckie Schumer aren’t telling you. First, the Medicaid Hospital Insurance Trust Fund will be depleted by 2028. Even sooner if Medicaid expansion is allowed to continue. Second, you won’t lose your Medicaid when the ACA collapses next year. The 14 million who signed up for Medicaid under the ACA will still have their Medicaid. At least until is runs out of money. How ironic; you will be losing your Medicaid by 2028 anyway! In the mean time, the liberal loons, who created the ACA failure, will continue feeding you a false narrative so you vote for them, FYI. Those 12 million people forced by mandated to buy Obamacare will have the option to buy affordable health insurance on their own.
Here are some other tidbits for you to contemplate. The Social Security Disability already ran out of money a couple of years ago. The Washington idiots quietly lumped it in with the Social Security Trust Fund. Guess what? In 2034 you will be getting a 25 percent cut in your SSN checks! Even funnier, Medicare’s Hospital Trust Fund is projected to run out of money by 2029!
The Democrats voted for the 5,000 page ACA bill without reading it or understanding the consequences. Political ignorance strikes America again! Now Obummercare is crumbling under its own weight. The government-run ACA was not affordable or viable!
