If the Republicans manage to pass the repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA, aka Obamacare), there is a high probability I will eventually die homeless and sick. I have many pre-existing conditions, namely cancer survivorship, diabetes, obesity, and more. Insurance for me would be a hugely unaffordable thing, and when I inevitably have my first post-repeal health crisis, I would likely lose what little money I have, not to mention the ability to work and become destitute.
The ACA is probably the primary reason I’m alive now. I could not afford my medications, nor treatments for the several severe health crises I’ve had in the past few years.
I know there are many who would cheer the repeal of the ACA. Perhaps, some of those cheerers are reading this. Know that you are also cheering for my death and the deaths of many others. Perhaps you don’t care, and may even cheer my death so some millionaires may get tax breaks, but that’s something you have to live with because I won’t.
If the Republicans manage to pass this Death Bill, then they must wear the banner of the Party of Death for the rest of their own lives.
