Cliché as it may seem, health is wealth. However, it probably works the other way around now. You need to be wealthy to be healthy. It's a sad reality for millions of Americans right now. It is every person’s right to have good health along with some other basic rights like the right to life, food, and shelter. Unfortunately, you may fall ill at times and compromise the state of your health.
Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, has been in effect for the past two terms of former President Barack Obama. The unexpected win of President Donald Trump spawned the creation of the long-awaited House Republican bill that is set to change the American economy. No longer will healthcare cover more Americans but it will also benefit more of the rich than those from the poorer classes.
Despite Republican claims of bringing in a new and better health care law in place, many Democrats see it as a cruel attempt to deprive Americans of reasonable health care. Will people now support hypnosis research in treating temporomandibular disorder (TMD) if the government will no longer help you pay for its treatment?
It is a risky gamble for the GOP. If you’re curious as to what this new bill covers, vox.com got it covered:
A lot of people are already not happy that these changes are taking place and are demanding reform. But with the Republican party having the upper hand right now, we can all expect to see them try to repeal Obamacare and replace it with something of their own making.
It is not good news for many that the party attempts to force the majority of Americans to pay for more expensive healthcare while many more lose their health insurance coverage in the process.
Now, if the government can’t look after the health of its citizens and makes it harder for many to afford care, what else can we expect in the next four years? After all, President Trump is the most powerful man in all of America.
