Yep, I'm not so much concerned for myself but for everyone, especially the folks on this site. We ALL have a scary pre-existing condition, not to mention staggering medical bills. Personally, I will be eligible for Medicare in a few months so if Congress manages not to decimate that program I should be more or less okay. Meanwhile I'm paying through the nose for COBRA for those few months, but given the price of some of these drugs we all take, going without insurance is not an option. The folks I fear for are the ones who don't have the options I have and are dependent on either Medicaid or an ACA plan. I don't know what will happen, and I find it discouraging that we live in a country that would willfully just let people die for the simple inability to pay for treatment.
I live in Texas so contacting my Senators is a colossal waste of time, and time is a precious commodity to me, nor do I need the aggravation of getting their obsequious replies trying to justify their positions. So fight on there, sister, for all of us.
