in all the Comeygate, there's a real chance the Senate is about to repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with the AHCA monstrosity. Among other things, it could cover dramatically fewer people, and fail to protect people with preexisting conditions. The plan is apparently to get rid of regulations requiring essential health benefits, so that insurance plans don't have to cover basic things - and this would apply to all insurance plans, even ones that are provided by employers.

It's being done with no hearings, no real analysis, which is why the healthcare industry is opposed - but they're doing it anyway.

So, you know. Call your senators and pray.

Thank you for reminding folks of this. I'm worried this is going to get lost in "The Comey Show" noise, which, while important, shouldn't allow this critical issue to be forgotten. I feel like I have to keep collaring people, reminding them that this is still happening, and will still have the devastating effort it promises to have if passed.
