With all the drama in the White House these days, it’s easy to forget that the President and his party just made major progress toward destroying the American health care system.
TrumpCare is opposed by every major group of health professionals in the country. As I recently wrote in the Deseret News,
Not only did Trumpcare get rushed through without so much as a single hearing or a full CBO score, it is also condemned by every major medical group, patients’ rights group or medical professional’s association, including the American Medical Association; the American Nurses Association; the American College of Physicians; the American Academy of Family Physicians; the American Hospital Association; the Federation of American Hospitals; the American Psychiatric Association; the American College of Physicians; the National Nurses United; the National Physicians Alliance; the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons; the American Academy of Pediatrics; and the AARP.
You’d think public policy this terrible would warrant at least a little opposition from Utah’s elected Representatives. You’d think they’d remember that Utahns need healthcare, too.
In fact, according to the Utah Health Policy Project, Utah has the highest percentage of children enrolled in coverage from the Affordable Care Act–the bill our Representatives voted to replace with Trumpcare.
My opponent supported this bill. In fact, she’s proud of her vote. That scares me and it should scare you. I have children who need specialized healthcare. My friends and neighbors need healthcare. And our Representative in Congress is excited about burning the system to the ground.
Your voice is needed; we must be louder than the cacophony in Washington. Our health is too important to leave up to partisans who support terrible policy just because their party leader, Donald Trump, says he likes it.
