I love the phrase “Trickle Down Healthcare”. Can we make this a meme?
Cartoonist Jen Sorensen comments on her own comic:
The AHCA is so monstrously cruel any honest description sounds hyperbolic. Not only will it literally kill people, but it’ll kill entrepreneurship too, as workers stay locked in their jobs for fear of losing heath insurance. Self-employed people with pre-existing conditions are hosed. I face the possibility of not having health insurance for the first time in my life. My friend, a cancer survivor, was interviewed on the local news about the prospect of facing unaffordable premiums. So much wonderful freedom! Thank you, House Republicans.
Vox has an article about who the winners and losers are in the House AHCA bill. Quick summary: “Rich people do well. Sick people don’t.”
