The Republicans are totally psyched for the Supreme Court to overturn the Affordable Care Act. They’re absolutely giddy about it.
However, it’s worth noting at this point that Republicans with pre-existing conditions would be denied insurance.
Republican families of four earning around $55K per year will likely pay an additional $6,597 in annual premiums without the ACA’s premium caps, and they would lose an additional $1,930 in annual subsidies to help them pay for insurance. In total Republican families will pay an additional $8,527 per year for health insurance if the ACA is overturned by the Supreme Court. Fact.
Republicans who want to remain on their parent’s health insurance would find themselves uninsured.
Republican seniors receiving Medicare Part-D coverage would, once again, face the dreaded donut-hole forcing them to pay for life-saving but prohibitively expensive prescriptions out-of-pocket for a period of time.
Republicans at or below 133% of the federal poverty level would lose their Medicaid coverage.
Republicans who use up their lifetime limit for coverage will have to pay for healthcare out of pocket and risk going broke in the process — just for getting sick or injured.
Republicans will, once again, risk being dropped from their coverage as soon as they get sick or injured.
Republicans will have to deal with deductibles, co-pays and coinsurance for preventative care and check-ups.
And on and on…
For some reason they can’t wait for the law to be overturned.
