The ORRA HERE

Skinny Repeal: Who knows….

Yes, the Senate Democrats, in theory could prolong the law by introducing amendments, until 09/30/18. They would need about 9,300 amendments related to the health care bills.
Over 30,000 amendments were submitted by INDIVISIBLE. As blogged here And here.

WHO VOTED:
All Rep. Senators, except two, voted for the MTP. The two Republican Senators, that will go down in history as heroes are women. Senator Susan Collins of Maine, and Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska are the two Republicans who voted against the Motion to Proceed (MTP). Both of these Senators need immediate positive feedback as they are being intimidated by their party. As of 07/26/17 Sen. Murkowski, seems to be flopping under the Republican Senate Pressure.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO NOW:
CALL, Fax, contact your Democratic Senators. Immediate response of disapproval. Demand that your Democratic Senators REFUSE the SKINNY Amendment. The SKINNY AMMENDMENT IS A “TROJAN HORSE”.

7/25/17: MOTION TO PROCEED On Trumpcare Bill; Sight Unseen By Senate. NO Turning Back if this passes. Key Senators BULLIED for Votes

UPDATED: ALL Republican Senators voted for the MOTION TO PROCEED on 07-25-17, with the Exception of Collins (Maine), and Murkowski (Alaska), both female. One cannot envision what this day has been like for me, sadly my child witnessed a gut wrenching break down. Do Something or Do Nothing. Every Soul in America will feel the ramifications of this vote for decades to come. My children witness my calls, letters, my fight, my vision, my teachings and knowledge to every one I see, and thousands that I don’t. The fight for the right to receive medical care for every child, elder, disabled and poor person in this country. From my tears, to Gods ears.

Senate will vote on a MOTION-TO-PROCEED (MTP) on an unknown and unseen healthcare (tRUMPcare) bill today, 07/25/17. Unprecedented and (unfortunately) predictable at this point; Senators will vote on a MOTION TO PROCEED BEFORE seeing the tRUMPcare-health care bill, amendments, or any helter-skelter laws about healthcare. If the MTP succeeds–there will be NO GOING BACK. NONE.
According to David Durenberger former Republican Senator of Minnesota States unequivocally:
This week, the Senate once again is set to vote on a health care bill that will radically change how people get coverage and who can afford their care. But unlike normal times, Senators, you are being asked to approve a Motion to Proceed to a vote:

• Without knowing what will be in the bill you would vote on.
• Without knowing what the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office will say about the impact of major amendments and the final bill on coverage and premiums.
• With full knowledge that the Senate parliamentarian, who rules on what can and can’t be allowed in a budget bill, has said that the Senate must remove provisions intended to prevent an insurance market death spiral of sicker patients driving up costs.
Without knowing the details of the secret state Medicaid waivers the Trump administration insists will make the bill work.
Without knowing how your own state budget will be impacted.
• Without knowing how you will defend the provisions you will only learn about later, including the payoffs and other things that will be sneaked into the bill at the last minute.
Without even knowing which bill you are being asked to vote on, what the defining amendments will be and how much time you will have when being pressed for a final vote you’ll be stuck with. Forever.

He continues, a vote in these circumstances will rightly provoke anger and distrust unlikely to abate. Take it from me (David Durenberger, R-Min): A no vote on the Motion to Proceed this week is the only one that will be defensible in the years to come.

(USA TODAY; 07/24/17)

Since trump took office, we have seen several inhuman variations of the new healthcare bill. What has remained CORE throughout and we can expect at minimal are:

We cannot envision the totality of the bill Senate will approve by passing the Motion to Proceed. Listed are the consistent cuts across all legislation. #trumpcare[/caption]

The caveat…unexpectedly, McCain (R) AZ, is flying in, for the vote. Which may be the deal breaker.

I urge you to contact your Senators, and or the “key” Senators whose votes are up-in the air. Seemingly the “key” Senators changed their tunes, by good-ole peer pressure, bribery, threats and more. The same Senators listed below and here And here .

Except: Senators will vote sight unseen, on a Motion To Proceed (MTP) on the hidden health care bill….if the vote is a yes. There is NO GOING BACK. McConnell seems to have his ducks in a row. Confident this unprecedented MTP on tRUMPcare, and unknown amendments will pass. Contact NOW. MTP approval is the beginning of the end. This information must get mainstream. Trump and the boy scouts was hypocrisy, how many of the boy scouts he had cheering on tRUMPcare are on Medicaid? Which, will be cut. Continual lies televised & in print of tRUMPcare.

Side note: I’ve been ill, and not well enough to continue updating. I do not have affiliate Ads, nor have any monetary gain or any gain for posting facts. I’ve hoped others will realize the importance of being our own advocates, in so many varied settings. I am not sure if it’s even making a difference anymore. Or, if it ever has. Prayers.

This blog update is important: If the MTP is a yes; history, families, lives are changed forever. The next president, and many more presidents, will not be able to undo the damages this party has done and will do to America. Peace.

6/30/17 Update McConnell is working on the moderates Capito and Portman, offered both double-digit billions for their yes vote. He is putting the bait packaged as the offer would help the opioid crisis. As of early 6/30 both declined and apparently want more money for their states because of the Medicaid cut. I really don’t know why he is offering billions for opioids epidemic in Maine and Ohio. Treatment would not be covered if both states accept the 2 billion dollar bribe to cut ESSENTIAL HEALTH CARE BENEFITS--his offer to buy these votes will increase, as he may have more flexibility with reducing a small amount from the trillion-dollar tax credit.

Reminding Heller and Collins why their no vote is vital. And congrats to them, stroking their ego, and thanking them for their support is needed. We can’t lose these two.

McConnell is also tightening up as he approaches the Conservatives. Contacting the conservatives should also be on our email, phone, fax and social media to do list every day. We have until Tuesday when they return from recess. I’m up all hours of the night waiting to see if he has cut a deal while America sleeps.

PEOPLE OVER PARTY. #BCRA is NOT SOCIALIZED MEDICINE.#BCRA IS MURDER. EVERYONE YOU KNOW WILL LOSE LOVED ONES FROM THE #BCRA (#AHCA)

ACT NOW! URGENT!
MILLIONS WILL FACE DEATH ACT NOW
SHARE WIDELY

UPDATED: FOLLOW the ACTION ALERT Plan FOR UPDATES: HERE
We have seen the dirty tricks of the GOP, like signing laws as we sleep. Smokescreens, pulling bills, then bribing congress for their votes, then passing said bill. Nothing surprises me about their demonic tricks. What are they up to now? As they have created, and kept their version of Congress #AHCA in hiding. The Senates version is now called, Better Care Reconciliation Act”, new hashtag #BCRA. Only to discover Senates Version of #BCRA does not hide the fact of murdering millions of Citizens. As of this morning, Mitch McConnell has delayed the vote for the #BCRA (#AHCA) until after their July 4th Recess.
IF INDEED the VOTE Is delayed until aer JULY 4, 2017, Mitch McConnell has 13 extra days to $BUY$ the votes of Senators to approve the #BCRA (#AHCA) as LAW. #BCRA (#AHCA) will result in the BLATANT MURDER of MILLIONS of Americans.

*What is the likelihood McConnell will get the 4 YES VOTES?
Extremely high. McConnell has an extra 200 BILLION and an extra 13 days to BUY votes for a $1 Trillion Tax cut. It’s very easy that MCCONNELL will convert these current NOs to a YES As a reminder, the Congress #AHCA legislation, many FLIPPED THEIR VOTES OVERNIGHT.

*It gets worse: The conservative Senators that are now a NO, want more STRINGENT verbiage added to the #BCRA (#AHCA). This bill is already going to affect every single person in the USA. MCCONNELL will make the current #BCRA (#AHCA) MUCH WORSE to gain the votes of the 4 Conservative-hardcore Senators. Will he succeed? YES! HE WILL. Which is WHY it is IMPERATIVE that EVERY citizen act NONSTOP, to derail this Death Train.

>>>According to Andy Slavitt @aslavitt:
“Two “moderates” are firmly against and 4 conservatives.
McConnell has 2 to spare.
If he gets the conservatives, he wins.”

MCCONNELL and GOPs PLAN:
Slavitt believes the same context of driving guilt into the current NO-VOTE senators; will be the same headgame used with congress. By blaming the current “NO” votes for supporting “SOCIALIZED MEDICINE”.

–>Which the informed citizen realizes the#BCRA (#AHCA) is a FAR CRY from SOCIALIZED MEDICINE. THE #BCRA (#AHCA) IS MURDER.
Voice these facts when you contact the Senators: IT IS NOT SOCIALIZED MEDICINE–ITS MURDER. REAFFIRM THE FACTS With the moderate Republican Senators.
**The hard-core conservatives just want Americans DEAD. They are a lost cause: Although MCCONNELL will tighten up the noose of #BCRA (#AHCA) to get their votes.

The 4 HARDCORE Conservatives Senators: That want MORE Patient Protections removed are:
Cruz (TX)
Johnson (WI)
*Lee
*Paul

If MCCONNELL continues to crucify the#BCRA (#AHCA) to appease the Conservatives; it *may* push the moderates to a firm NO. FOCUS ON THE MODERATES:

MODERATE SENATORS OPPOSED:
Dean Heller (NV)
Susan Collins (ME)

Moderate Senators Possibly Opposed:
Lisa Murkowski (AK)*possibly
Portman
Cassidy
^Capito

Capito and Portman announced after the Vote Delay they would not support the #AHCA.
~~Interjecting: Capito realizes her no vote will like be easily bought. My opinion of her coming out after the fact just smells like a money hunt. ?^Before I could post this, she reportedly cut a deal with the WH. However, if there is a glimmer of conscience in any other Republican Senator, the more Senators that voice a NO the better.

  • ➡️➡️It is unbelievable that MANY Americans are unaware of this current healthcare/deathcare. The Republican Party this week lied multiple times about NOT cutting MEDICAID, which was an ABSOLUTE LIE. as shown in the CBO Analysis. Rural America BELIEVES these lies.

  • Chronic Illness Patients and No Options to Survive: CBO of Senate #AHCA Defi

    The CBO does not include the millions of high-cost or pre-existing conditions as the uninsurable forecast of 23M..
    The CBO states, “that the funding available to help provide coverage for those high-cost services would be insufficient in some cases even if a special program was designed for that purpose. Therefore, the agencies expect that insurance coverage for high-cost services would become extremely expensive in those areas, as it was in some places before the enactment of the ACA in 2010. A state is required to have mechanisms to reduce the chance of such outcomes as part of its waiver program under current law, but would not be under this legislation.”….AHCA gives states that accept waivers 2 Billion Dollars. The CBO quotes,”…states can use the funds for purposes other than health care”. CUTTING EHBS includes non-treatment of chronic illness and more

    Bear with me on this complicated and urgent subject. It is important to understand the #AHCA contents, key concepts, and how it will cause mass death. This is factual. PLease refer to the documents for the specific legislation, also linked below. This legislation will affect you and your loved ones. It is worth reading as I break it down to basic understanding of the consequences of AHCA that is in process of becoming law THIS WEEK.

    The Senates #AHCA, as suspected causes far more damage than the Congressional #AHCA Bill, to EVERY American.

    ~~~Senate released the “HR1628 Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017” {BCRA}, also called #trumpcare or the #AHCA, on Friday, 06/23/17. The CBO analysis released, 06/26/17. The horror of this legislation, it may become law by midweek.
    What is the CBO?

    The Congressional Budget Office, known as the “CBO” reports as a nonpartisan entity that provides long-term statistical data analysis for “congress”. Statistical data reports include cost benefits, analysis, estimates and deficits that range from agriculture, health care, taxes, veterans and more. Final legislation is typically driven by the CBO forecast.

    CBOs Influence on #AHCA
    **In the case of the HR1628 now known as the BCRA (#AHCA); the CBO Report analyzes past healthcare data, projecting current, proposed legislation and the financial overall (not inclusive) impact.
    It seems that the CBO report is heavily weighted with many proposed bills, that will have any impact on the financial economy. Much like a home inspection is to a home seller. On a larger scale, that potentially affects significant population bases within the United States.

    Summary of CBO (PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS)

    CBO of the BCRA
    In a nutshell the CBO briefly addresses pre-existing, chronic illness,high-cost patients and treatments, or those that would use the protections of the Essential Healthcare Benefits (EHBs).

    *However, the CBO does not include the millions of high-cost or pre-existing conditions as the uninsurables.
    The CBO states, “that the funding available to help provide coverage for those high-cost services would be insufficient in some cases even if a special program was designed for that purpose. Therefore, the agencies expect that insurance coverage for high-cost services would become extremely expensive in those areas, as it was in some places before the enactment of the ACA in 2010. A state is required to have mechanisms to cut the chance of such outcomes as part of its waiver program under current law, but would not be under this legislation.”
    No mention of how, or if, the chronically ill can or will be insurable or have access to care.Stunning. Petrifying.
    CBO OF

    CBO Reveals NO SOLUTION FOR PRE EXISTING CONDITIONS OR TREATMENTS “NO PROTECTIONS UNDER #AHCA”

    As discussed EHBs, will be annihilated. If you haven’t already reviewed what cuts will happen when EHBs get tossed. Please become familiar ASAP, as these cuts are diabolical.
    HERE! HERE! HERE! HERE!

    Hits home with a lot of persons who were born with defective genes. Leaving our children behind as orphans is a real fear with #AHCA

    CBO FACT 2:
    The CBO data omitted
    millions more as uninsurable by dismissing chronic illnesses and treatment in the last analysis. Perhaps, they have accepted the idea of the chronic illness patients fate? WE HAVE NOT.

    CBO CONCLUDES: State Bribery to End EHBs

    The last CBO result concludes 23 Million will be uninsured. As stated above, the last numbers are perhaps double, due to unknown omission of Pre-Existing Conditions. The data seems flawed. **Of significance #BCHA or #AHCA gives states that accept waivers 2 Billion Dollars. The CBO quotes,”…states can use the funds for purposes other than health care”. Reportedly, taking effect July 2017-July 2019.

    The Catch

    Keep in mind, when accepting waivers, states will drop EHBs, and other current health care protections. The ending of EHBs means treatment for chronic conditions, prescriptions, maternity, basic blood work, and more are also no longer covered by insurance.

    States receive “pass thru funds” of 2 Billion to end EHBs in 17-19

    Senate Legislation #AHCA Confirms: $2 BILLION for Pre-Meditated Murder:
    Page 136

    Senate #AHCA Bribes states with 2 Billion to drop or change EHBs 2017-2019

    Republican Tactic:

    *Smokescreen-as usual. Do not divert your attention for ANYTHING. Healthcare and lives are at stake.

    *The CBO score gives Mitch McConnell TWO HUNDRED BILLION “extra cash” (by not including the chronic illness patients in their last data) to bribe the few Republicans to flip their moderate or potential no to a yes vote. It happened with the congress vote, and it will happen again.

    *Ironically, McConnell (R) KY: His life was saved from polio, by government funding for his treatment and rehabilitation. He is one of the MAIN leaders of this death pact, 2nd to Paul Ryan.

    .
    Mitch McConnell, Ringleader of the Death Spiral: Polio as a child, the government paid for his treatment and rehabilitation. His heart is damaged from the Polio, as killing millions of Americans he has no heart

    More Cuts
    There are MANY unjust and inhumane aspects of the BCRA (HR1628, #AHCA). Senate is determined to pass this atrocity as law, as I write this. The vast cuts range from qualified health plans (i.e., bare bone coverage) insane Medicaid cuts, employer-provided healthcare cuts, 58% actuaries (will define actuaries later), annual and lifetime limits, 5 times higher premiums for ages above 50, unlimited and uncapped premiums, deductibles and out-of-pocket expenses, elimination of cost-sharing, and the list goes on.

    Fact: The Republican Party: Profit & Power: NOT PATIENTS

    Kicking elderly out of nursing homes, children from Medicaid, disabled from access to medical care equals the exact amount, 33 Billion in TAX cuts for the wealthy

    WHAT CAN YOU DO NOW?
    We are running out of time, call, email, fax. Most importantly: Talk to your neighbor, family, friends, tell the, the facts. They will say, “I heard the opposite on the news, radio, internet, newspaper”. Redirect them to the facts. All legislation is on this site, and original sources cited. WORD Of MOUTH, In person, on the Phone (not texting). Sadly the technological world makes reality seem distant people need to actually understand facts, they do not understand the size as hitting them, until it’s to late. Again here are the contacts;

    Don’t Be Fooled, Money Talks. Some of the Agencies, once the truth hit, have back paddled. BE SMART!
      REFLECTING
      Since trumps election I have continually pointed out the significance of #Cures, ACA, AHCA, EHBs, Here I Explain How #Cures led the groundwork for the current health-care crises. and more.

      While large organizations denied these facts to Chronic Illness Patients. See: HERE Am I surprised?
      After viewing republicans DENY cuts to Medicaid publicly; knowing they just sentenced children and the elderly to death. Yes, I believe it now.

      Sadly, after putting many of these pieces together and following the trail of money. I am not surprised by the actions of greed. An atrocity. They are all committed to Politics & Profit; not Patients. While innocent patients, who would do anything not to be sick, suffer. Our voices unheard.

    cures-ugly-truth
    Cures and the Ugly Truth
  • Status Quo and Status Quo Bias:

    The absolute definition of STATUS QUO; Patients that BELIEVE the current health care situation is *better than any change, therefore they refuse to accept truth, or facts–Even-when their life depends upon fact. They refuse to accept an alternative, the facts. If one attempts to present the facts, and disrupt their current world of life with the “status-quo”; they in fact, respond with vengeance, down playing and ostracize. This defines the status quo bias.

    Here we are, the week that we may see the end to life as we knew it on s federal level…AS A LAW. Continue reading “Chronic Illness Patients and No Options to Survive: CBO of Senate #AHCA Defi”
