Trumpcare, which is the cutesy nickname given to the American Healthcare Act — which in itself is euphemism for “Let Poor People Die Act” — puts the healthcare of millions of people in jeopardy. Why? For one, Trumpcare would leave 24 million people uninsured, jeopardize Medicaid (especially for the elderly and disabled), and also jeopardize coverage for anyone with these pre-existing conditions — which pretty much means all of us, as the following are considered pre-existing conditions under Trumpcare:

  • breast cancer
  • uterine cancer
  • basal cell skin cancer
  • any other cancer that’s occurred within 10 years time
  • acne
  • menstrual irregularities
  • lupus
  • alcoholism
  • addictions
  • mental illnesses and disorders
  • treatment for sexual assault
  • epilepsy
  • hemophilia
  • strokes
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • congestive heart failure
  • multiple sclerosis
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • dementia
  • muscular dystrophy
  • pregnancy
  • depression
  • sleep apnea
  • asthma
  • high cholesterol
  • allergies
  • high blood pressure
  • kidney stones
  • kidney failure
  • ear infections
  • hepatitis
  • COPD

Actually, these are just some of them. I got tired and depressed and couldn’t finish. But yeah. Also important to note that Republicans in Congress exempted themselves from parts of the bill they didn’t like, because they are better than the rest of us. Thanks, Republicans! And “thanks,” I mean “eat shit.”
