If you look at what this Democrat leader eloquently delivers as her reasons for voting against the American Health Care Act (ACHA is the Obamacare
replacement), it's obvious why Democrats can't get any traction. No specifics.. Just "The sky is falling!" scare tactics. And, of course..no
suggestions for improvement to AHCA or OBAMACARE. True blue idiots.
"It's a disaster for New Mexico," U.S. Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham said.
Lujan Grisham believes the Republicans' proposed health care plan will negatively impact New Mexicans. "It's an $800 million hole in our Medicaid
budget. It will decimate rural hospitals," she said.
Lujan Grisham spoke to veterans at a town hall on Saturday. She said veterans health care problems will only get worse under the newly proposed plan.
"It negatively affects veterans. It negatively affects any of the infrastructure. It negatively affects nursing homes. It negatively affects seniors,"
Lujan Grisham said.
Under the proposed American Health Care Act, people who don't have health care would receive tax credits to help pay for insurance, based on age. The
older you are, the more money you would get to keep. However, Lujan Grisham said that's not enough. "Under this plan, someone like my sister who had a
brain tumor at two, wouldn't have made it," she said. "We want something better, we deserve something better. So lets fight for it!""
And Rep. Grisham is one of the brighter members of Congress!
