If #Obamacare is repealed by the GOP #HealtcareBill, then #Medicaid won't survive

The cuts are drastic and deep, especially to Medicaid. I'm not sure if you've seen the statistics, but 47% of all births in the U.S. are covered by Medicaid. Many of these won't be covered if there are $800 billion in Medicaid cuts. That's not all that far from a trillion dollars. The Trump people are denying there are cuts.

20% of all people in the United States rely on Medicaid for their medical care. These are the most vulnerable people in our population.

1.4 million seniors rely on Medicaid to pay for their assisted living. Many of these seniors will be kicked off Medicaid under the new health care bill.

This is only the beginning of this cruel bill that only benefits the rich.
