The Trump Health Care Disaster

Category: Health Care
Posted: 10/13/17 12:09

Who is most affected by Trump's decision to suspend ACA subsidies....

States with the highest average monthly tax credit for premiums:

AK - NC -WV - OK - AZ - TN - AL - NE - WY - CT - SD - MN - LA - PA - SC

If it looks a little red to you, you are right. 13 of 15 are Trump states.

States with total dollars received from ACA premium credits:

FL -CA -TX -NC -VA -PA - GA - IL - MI - NJ - MO - WI - TN - MA - OH

Again, fairly red. Ten of top fifteen are Trump states.

Total number of people receiving tax credits by state:

FL - CA - TX - NC - GA - PA - IL - TN - VA - MO -AL - WI - SC - NJ - AZ

Red again. Eleven of top 15 are Trump states.

It is worth noting that New York does not appear on any of the top 15 lists even though they are a high population state. While North Carolina is in the top five for all three. Minnesota will get hurt disproportionately because they have had one of the highest average credits and in addition, MinnesotaCare will take a big hit as well.

This is a direct assault on the poor. It takes a system that was working with a few problems...to a system that gets completely unraveled.

Trump is destroying our health care system singlehandedly.

And Congress, once again, stands by and watches.
