President Donald Trump finally got his victory: Trumpcare. The House repealed the evil Affordable Care Act (psssst: Obamacare).
Of course, it will cost 24 million people their health care. It will mean an $880 billion hit to Medicaid, a fund he said he wouldn’t touch.
According to the Center For American Progress, if you have asthma, annual premiums will cost $4,340 more. Got cancer? It costs $142,650 more for your annual premiums. Pregnancy? Premiums will cost $17,320 more.
As long as you are good with all of those costs, celebrate with Trump and Reps. Andy Barr, Hal Rogers and James Comer.
