Senator Roy Blunt Is Lying To Missourians and America About Health Care Today

Senator Blunt, one of our two Senators here in Missouri, posted on Facebook today. What he posted is not just a lie but it makes me angry.  What he wrote:

Obamacare is imploding. In Missouri, premiums on the Obamacare exchanges have increased by 145 percent, on average, since 2013, and 25 counties may have no provider offering health insurance on the Obamacare exchanges next year.

That's what he says and what Republicans in that political party want us to believe but here are the facts.
First, Obamacare is anything but "imploding."

More Americans have health insurance 

than ever 

Even doctors support it.

Even doctors who voted Trump support Obamacare.

Their plan, the Republicans' plan, the AHCA, "Trumpcare", would hurt the disabled, for starters.

Their plan would also hurt the poor.

It would hurt the elderly.

it would hurt Veterans, for God's sake.

Heck, even their supposed leader, President Trump calls it out for what it is.

And why wouldn't he call it mean?

So just who would or does  their ultra-secret plan help?  Take a guess. It's Republicans, after all.

If you already have money, here's yet one more plan--and a great one--for you. If you're sick or get sick or you're elderly or disabled or a Veteran?

It sucks to be you.

So while the rich get even richer, more Americans would be dropped from heath care insurance, according to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office or CBO.

That isn't even touching exactly how they're writing their horrible health care bill for nation.

The fact is, right now, Americans very much support the current plan, the ACA, "Obamacare. This is from February of this year.

And this is from April of this year.

And if Obamacare is "imploding", how do Americans feel about the Republicans' upcoming plan?

Check out exactly how few Americans support the Republicans' new plan for us.

So, it seems clear here, given all the above, that Senator Blunt and any and all like him who would say or are saying that Obamacare is collapsing in on itself and/or that Americans don't want or don't like Obamacare clearly don't know the facts or, especially, the wishes of the American people.

Don't tell us it's raining, Senator Blunt. We know better.
