Dear Congress -- #AHCA

OK Folks, it's been some time since I have written on my blog, I have been busy working away at my store and trying to make it a success.  Yesterday, the House passed a bill that literally makes my stomach sick.  While they were celebrating, people need to understand that you or someone you know just became incredibly vulnerable yesterday.  Below are my thoughts, please pass it along.
DEAR CONGRESS: Our country is full of REAL PEOPLE WITH REAL NEEDS AND REAL FAMILIES. State by State, you have voted for a waiver that allows the most vulnerable amongst us to be opted out of your business plan. I would like to call on the people of this country, the millions of families of the disabled nationwide to rise up and fight this with every fiber of your being. #fightforwhatisright #ahca write your Congressperson, VOTE in the midterms. 

These are #Essentialhealthbenefits. Here is a real letter from a REAL family as an example, tag us with your story. #georgia #moebiussyndrome

American Health Care Act of 2017 (H.R. 1628)
Dear Senator Isaksson of Georgia,
I am writing you as a Georgia resident who is very concerned about the provisions in H.R. 1628. This bill as it currently is written will create Medicaid block grants and per capita caps for the states. I have a son with Moebius Syndrome. We depend on the Katie Beckett medicaid program for my sons health treatments. Without this optional Medicaid program in Georgia, my son would suffer and his life would be much harder than it already currently is. I understand that the Healthcare issue is complicated and the expenses are crazy out of control. Surely, we can ask others for sacrifice before we remove the only safety net our least capable and disabled have. Please, please don't support the creation of bloc grands and per capital caps for Medicaid and the Katie Becket program. It would be devastating for my son. Sincerely, Danielle.
