The Repubicans are beginning to dismantle Medicare.

The facts are obvious, the Republicans have no health care plan that is viable. They have a health care plan, it is just that it doesn't matter, it victimizes most Americans.

How can a 64-year-old making $26,500 a year (click here) afford to have his health care premiums jump from $1,700 to $14,600 a year (a whopping 758 percent increase)? He can’t.
That’s the reason AARP is strongly opposed to the American Health Care Act (AHCA) and why we’re doubling down on efforts to stop it in its tracks.
It’s an outrage that anyone in the U.S. Congress could expect people over age 50 to pay thousands more for health coverage. Even more outrageous? The fact that the very same bill gives big pharmaceutical firms and large insurance companies a massive $200 billion tax break.
Does anyone believe that’s what Americans voted for when they cast their ballots last November? I don’t think so....

The Republicans have taken the Affordable Care Act and turned it into the Unaffordable Nightmare Care.
