Dear Friends:

 

BALCONY HAS A LONG STANDING COMMITMENT TO HEALTH CARE FOR ALL WHICH IS UNDER ATTACK IN THE CONGRESS.   

 

WE HAVE BEEN WORKING CLOSELY WITH HEALTH CARE FOR

ALL NEW YORK.  

 

THE FOLLOWING IS AN URGENT MESSAGE FROM HCFANY URGING A NO VOTE IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES ON THE

RYAN BUDGET PROPOSALS.  

 

PLEASE HAVE YOUR VOICE HEARD ON THIS  

IMPORTANT HEALTH CARE ISSUE.

 

THANKS BALCONY 

      

 

 

HCFANY 

 

Speak out against moves in Congress to end health care: Call your Representative and tell them to oppose the 2012 U.S. House Budget Proposal!

 

Later this week, the U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on its 2012 House Budget proposal, introduced by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis) last week. The Republican majority's proposal will cut off health care to millions of Americans by:

 

Repealing the Affordable Care Act  

 

Defunding implementation of the Affordable Care Act

 

Turning Medicaid funding into a "block grant" and capping the amount given to states to provide health care to low and moderate income children and families, people with disabilities, seniors who need long-term and nursing home care, and destroyuing the very foundation of the Affordable Care Act.

 

Privatizing Medicare through vouchers for more expensive private insurance that will dramatically shift costs to seniors and the disabled.

 

Think this is a TERRIBLE plan?

If so - make your voice heard!

Specifically, the 2012 House Budget Proposal would:

Raise health care costs, and lower quality

The House proposes to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), dashing the hopes of the 32 million Americans who stood to gain affordable health coverage for the first time. It also destroys the ACA's consumer protections, cost-saving measures, and improvements to health care quality.  

 

   Seniors will again be subject to the Medicare donut hole;

 

   People with pre-existing conditions will again be denied insurance coverage;

 

   Young adults will be booted from their parent's plans;  

 

   Small businesses will lose tax credits;

 

   Health equity will no longer be a national priority;

 

   and Health care costs will continue to spiral out of control.

 

Weaken the social safety net. The proposal converts Medicaid into a block grant, further exacerbating state fiscal crises and forcing drastic cutbacks to over 70 million poor, sick, or disabled Americans - even children.  

 

Abandon the mission of health and retirement security for all Americans. Starting in 2022, all Medicare beneficiaries will be forced to enroll in private insurance plans that will cost seniors more than twice as much as regular Medicare. The insurance industry will enjoy a windfall of new revenue, and seniors will be forced to bear the brunt of higher health costs out of their own pockets.

 

Enrich the wealthy, impoverish everyone else. The House proposes a massive tax cut for the richest 2% of Americans, and yet keeps overall tax revenues the same. This makes an equally massive tax increase for the middle-class inevitable.
