Dear editor,

Health care professionals require stability in funding to develop business income and expense models. 

While Florida Republican leadership joined 13 other states in rejecting the attempt of Obamacare to do that, many other states’ acceptance assisted the intended stability.  

To fix their self-made mess, Republican leadership rolled out their own plan.

It is a model of instability.

For example, if you are over 64, your health insurer premium could be $19,500 with your share $14,600.

Insurance companies would also be allowed to sell “No Health Care Plans” with high deductibles and high co-pays for low-income families.

Of course, for “No Coverage” insurance premiums should go down — although (that is) not required.

State and federal Medicaid spending would be further curtailed. 

Income earners of over a million per year will receive $144 billion in tax cuts over the next decade. 

Drug companies would receive billions in tax cuts. 

Nursing home patient payments would be slashed. 

This bailout falls squarely on the backs of all who earn less than $1 million per year, while millions lose coverage and care. 

If your preferred health care model is “what’s best for your neighbor is what’s best” — outrage works!
