Death Knell of Obamacare

I once had lots but now that I have little I understand the Death Knell of Obamacare.  It’s living with very little and without a dependable safety net, telling you without much hope that things will get better.  I don’t quite understand the missteps and the swimming against the tide that got me here, but here I am.  I find it cruel to offer something and then take it away.  There’s not much hope the Republicans, for all their rhetoric, will offer a plan, let alone a better one,  When you find your protection slowly being taken away there’s not anything left except for death, which takes about 30,000 a year not insured and under insured the same.  Probably some more of us can be added each year because of the stress.  You think there’s no stress?  Having something that helps and living with a constant threat of it being taken away. I am an American, I am a New Yorker from Brooklyn and don’t understand being treated this way.  I have become dull and numb and with the Death Knell of Obamacare I don’t know what to do.

I just don’t know what to do.

Obamacare

“President Donald Trump wasted no time in chipping away at the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (sometimes called “ACA” or “Obamacare”). Today, shortly after he was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, President Trump signed an executive order giving the Department of Health and Human Services and “other executive departments and agencies” the authority and discretion to roll back certain aspects of the Affordable Care Act.

The order does not offer specifics. Rather, the order notes that the President intends to “seek the prompt repeal” of ACA. Pending the appeal, the order directs agency heads to “waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay the implementation of any provision or requirement of the Act that would impose a fiscal burden on any State or a cost, fee, tax, penalty, or regulatory burden on individuals, families, healthcare providers, health insurers, patients, recipients of healthcare services, purchasers of health insurance, or makers of medical devices, products, or medications.”  http://www.forbes.com/sites/kellyphillipserb/2017/01/20/trump-signs-executive-order-to-roll-back-obamacare/#10c99d07272f
