The GOP Health Care Plan: It’s Worse Than You Think

By December 19, 2023No Comments

Washington, DC – This year, the GOP laid bare their plans for American health care: they are going to fight tooth and nail to raise costs even higher, deny coverage to millions of people, and slash funding for critical programs. This year alone, Republicans have tried to repeal the Inflation Reduction Act’s measures that make prescription drugs more affordable for seniors, impose burdensome Medicaid paperwork requirements designed to throw people off of coverage, and weaken protections for 135 million people with pre-existing conditions. Just this month, Donald Trump reignited calls to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) entirely, giving new life to Republicans’ longtime war on health care. 

Key points of the GOP health care plan include:

  • Repealing the ACA
  • Repealing the Inflation Reduction Act
  • Hiking drug costs for seniors
  • Slashing Medicare and Medicaid funding
  • Putting drug and insurance companies back in charge

If Republicans are successful in enacting their health care plan, 40 million Americans across the country risk losing coverage, 15 million will see higher premiums, and 65 million people on Medicare will have to pay increased drug costs for lifesaving medications.
