Paul Ryan, a christian catholic, claims the republican's new health care bill is "an act of mercy".
Works of mercy include (Catechism of the Catholic Church par. 2447):
- To feed the hungry
- To clothe the naked
- To shelter the homeless
- To visit the sick
These are the estimated effects of Ryan's bill:
- According to the Congressional Budget Office 24 Million Americans will lose coverage during the next decade
- Higher premiums and less coverage for the poor and elderly
- A 64 year old could pay a $8400 Premium Increase
- Redistribution of money from the poor to the rich
- Smaller subsidies for people who don’t qualify for Medicaid
- A 30% penalty to anyone who loses insurance coverage for more than two months. So better don’t lose your job
- Tax Cuts for insurers, pharma companies and high earners. $600 billion total
- States won't be required to cover mental health with Medicaid funds
- Repealing the expansion of Medicaid by 2020
"There is no mercy in a system that makes healthcare a luxury. There is no mercy in a country that turns their back on those most in need of protection—the elderly, the poor, the sick and the suffering. There is no mercy in a cold shoulder to the mentally ill. There’s no mercy in a policy that takes for granted the sweat, the tears and the sacrifice of working Americans that they shed every day so that they might care for their families’ basic needs—food, shelter, health and hope for tomorrow. There’s no mercy to the 2.6 million people who will lose their job if Obamacare is repealed. This is not an act of mercy. It’s an act of malice." Congressman Joe Kennedy III
