All I can say is, call your senators, who are just as likely to ignore you but at least you can try. And remember this if you’re voting in a special election this year (there’s several) and in the midterms. 

You are correct about rape potentially being considered a pre-existing condition and potential basis for prohibitively expensive premiums. It is currently protected by the provisions in Obamacare, and all of those protections will be dismantled if the Senate passes the bill in its current form.

Seriously, these guys suck. Vote them out, and until there’s an election, call them every single day and tell them how badly they suck.

We should really rename the GOP the “He-Man Woman Haters Club.” sexual assault, c-sections, and prenatal care all now allowed to potentially be labeled pre-existing conditions that no longer have to be covered if a state wants to give you the big middle finger for having a uterus. Thanks assholes.

This whole thing is outrageous. There is no review by the Congressional Budget Office, and they purposely voted now to avoid the fallout from that report. This was all so that Trump could claim some sort of victory, as if taking health care from millions of people is something to celebrate.

It is telling that they have made sure to exempt themselves and their staff from the provisions of this bill. They know that they are screwing the public, and they simply don’t care.

It’s disgusting, and I hope that people wake up and see that this is nothing more than a tax cut for the wealthy.

raindrop101 :  The lack of a CBO review is really troubling. I can’t believe they voted on this bill without it!

how the hell is rape a pre-existing condition?! that doesn’t even make sense! you were a victim of a crime so you can’t get health insurance? so are we excluding people who were shot in armed robberies from health insurance too?

I also love that breast and ovarian cancer are reasons to deny you insurance, but not prostate or testicular cancer….yeah that seems fair.

As far as the rape issue, I did read somewhere that possibly it’s because rape victims are given anti-virals to protect against HIV? I don’t know if that’s true or not. People were saying anyone who has had to take meds for TB exposure (nurses etc) might have issues with insurance as well.

llevinso :  It was all for the Trump show so that he could take a victory lap. A negative CBO is nothing compared to being victims of his ridiculous tweets, which most congressmen seem fear more than the people that they represent.

I’m so sick of politics in the U.S. I’m appalled that this passed. I’m appalled that Democrats sang thier stupid taunt (http://www.businessinsider.com/democrats-chant-at-house-gop-after-ahca-vote-2017-5). This is a serious life and death issue for SO many Americans and quite frankly I’m pissed off at both sides right now – a lot more at republicans though.

I’m just fed up with all of it. Hopefully, it won’t pass in the Senate but I’m not holding my breath.
