Republicans have empty promises for improving healthcare

It is now been 10 years since the Republicans have promised to replace the Affordable Care Act. To date, they have no plans other than to take away your health care. Where is the leadership? Republicans have talked about block grants but have never seriously proposed any plans. What Republicans have proposed is to put limits on pre-existing conditions and to allow younger, healthier people to forgo health insurance which will drive up cost of health insurance for those in need of insurance.

Under Mr. Trump’s and Republican leadership, drug prices are raising at rates far above the cost of living. Republicans have failed to take the issue of health care seriously. They have failed to see the real pain of the constituents they serve.
