To tell you the truth, I don't know yet. When I go to the VA for my appointment, I might find out.

I want to immigrate one day, so any lasting changes might affect that, but I'm white, so I think I should be good. My girlfriend lives in LA and a lot of her family is Mexican, so maybe! How personal does it need to be? I don't know if she's going to lose any welfare stuff.

Yes, I have to deal with people complaining about Trumps policies.

Indirectly, yes. I get insurance through the ACA and it seems like a lot of doctors are rightly worried about taking those insurance plans and it's causing me difficulties.

My job in healthcare has also been affected by medicare changes (less funding for attended sleep studies=less work for me) but honestly I don't know who is the culprit behind this. It came into effect Jan 1st, so maybe not Trump. I don't know.

Not specifically Trump's doing but I'm turning 26 this year, thus losing my coverage under my mom's plan and there is the very real possibility that the GOP will dismantle the ACA without replacing it with anything just as I enter the market. Hooray.

If you can afford it, try getting insurance directly from a company instead of the ACA.
You can run into serious problems in the future if pre- existing conditions come up when you're uninsured. I dealt with that for several years in my 20s when ai worked for organizations that didn't offer insurance. No company would take me based on history of depression in my medical file and a gap in insurance coverage.

Better safe than sorry.

That possibility isn't very real.

It's really irresponsible to tell people their health insurance is going to be fine a year from now. It very well might be, but you don't know that, and republicans have stated time and again that they have every intention of scrapping ACA. Trump is for it, too. And the fact is they don't have a replacement yet.

9 months ago - Tuesday 1/31/17 - 6:26:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's incredibly odd to me how people keep saying Trump won't do what he promised to do.

There was some hope that he was all bluster and nothing would really change, but it does not appear that way anymore. If I were a betting woman, I'd side on him dismantling the ACA pretty soon.

I don't know for sure, of course, but it's looking like the dude's set on following through with his campaign promises and I don't think he gives a crap if people are uninsured in the gap between repealing aca and replacement.

In all reality, I think that a year from now, most things that will affect someone as young and relatively healthy as griffin will be fine. I think that mostly because:
1. it took time to implement and will take time to repeal all aspects of ACA
2. He isn't (afaik) part of a vulnerable population, such as people who were covered under Medicaid expansion (and if he was, he lives in a liberal state that will probably try to keep that).

But that doesn't mean I believe congressional republicans will wait until they've agreed on a replacement before they start repealing. I do not believe that at all. If nothing else, recent leaks/reports would indicate that they are VERY far from a consensus on what "replace" should even look like.

The fact is, they have not proposed any legislation seeking to repeal the ACA.

It requires an act of congress to repeal the ACA- - Trump alone cannot do it.

Many republicans have voiced concern about repealing the ACA without having something to replace it- - repealing without replacing it would be politically suicidal.

The Left is playing up the possibility as part of their fear mongering campaign- - trying to spread rumors that that Trump and the evil republicans in Congress are going to leave millions uninsured by repealing the ACA, as if they don't have to worry about any political fallout that may result from it.

Except for the 50+ times they have.

Or are you suddenly now willing to admit that was all just political grandstanding in order to curry favor with voters?

Everything I've heard about Donald Trump has sounded politically suicidal to me. I think he's immune to that kind of thing. No matter what he does, he keeps getting more and more power.

Not sure how it's 'suddenly', but it most likely was political grandstanding. They knew very well that a repeal would never actually pass- - particularly without a replacement being part of the proposal.

The difference is that the repeal has to go through Congress. Trump alone cannot do it. I don't see anyone in Congress willing to put their re-election on the line by repealing the ACA without having an alternative.

You are 25 and under your mom's plan? Are you unemployed?

Everyone under 25 is unemployed.

I am not but her coverages is better than that I would get through work.

i'd say the closest it would get would be healthcare, if i suddenly lose my job. but i'm not in danger of that since i've produced a winning record each year.

I have a job that does not offer any health benefits. So yeah, I stayed on my parents' health plan until I turned 26. Now I have to pay for my own every month and if the ACA were to be dismantled I'm not sure what the f*ck I'm supposed to do.
