Ohio Democratic Party

Truth Team: Stop #Trumpcare

Get the Facts

  • The House GOP has released their plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act — “Trumpcare” — and the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office has scored the bill.
  • The CBO’s report confirms that the Republican health care proposal would mean up to 24 million Americans lose their health coverage and skyrocketing premiums for older Americans — all to give huge tax breaks to the wealthy and insurance company CEOs.
  • Trumpcare will cut $880 billion from Medicaid, defund Planned Parenthood and weaken Medicare, reducing the life of the Medicare Trust Fund by four years.
  • The American Medical Association, AARP and Ohio Hospital Association all oppose the House Republicans’ proposal. The president of the statewide hospital group this week told National Public Radio “fully 25 percent of our hospitals in Ohio would be at risk of closure” under Trumpcare.

Sample script: “Hello, my name is Suzie, and I am a constituent of Congressman Smith. I’m very concerned about the Republican plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act that was released this week. Like Gov. John Kasich and Sen. Rob Portman, I’m very concerned that this proposal will kick hundreds of thousands of Ohioans off their insurance by gutting the Medicaid expansion program. The Ohio Hospital Association is saying that “fully 25 percent of our hospitals in Ohio would be at risk of closure” under the House Republican proposal. AARP is opposing the plan because it will mean premium hikes for older Americans. It will also weaken Medicare and exhaust the Medicare trust fund four years sooner. Finally, the Columbus Dispatch is reporting that the bill will cut $115 million for public health programs in Ohio. At a time when we’re suffering the nation’s worst heroin crisis and horrific infant mortality rates, we can’t lose funding that helps tackle those problems. Does Congressman Smith intend to vote YES or NO on the House Republican proposal to repeal the Affordable Care Act?”
