Reject the Trumpcare proposal--approve The Expanded And Improved Medicare For All Act!

This petition had 3 supporters

Details for 'Trumpcare', the Republican replacement for the Affordable Care Act (nicknamed 'Obamacare') have been released. Some 20 million Americans would lose coverage, and many more would be unable to afford the premium levels required for individual healthcare. Further, Trumpcare does away with the employer mandate--many fulltime workers will be picking up their own costs for healthcare, including low-wage workers no longer covered under Medicaid. We the People demand that the government provide a replacement to Obamacare if it is repealed. Fortunately, for the last 14 years, Congressman John Conyer has proposed a 'Medicare For All' program that would be paid for through a payroll tax and  transaction fees levied on Wall Street transactions. It would achieve universal health coverage for Americans, which would mean that the United States would join the rest of the wealthy industrialized world in providing healthcare to all citizens regardless of their ability to pay.

We the people demand that there be a comprehensive replacement to the ACA before you and the Republican majorities in the House and Senate act to repeal it. As the 'Trumpcare' proposed replacements are not affordable for most Americans (nor do they cover some 20 million Americans currently covered under the ACA, we propose that Congress have a vote on HR676. We ask this in good faith, reminding you that your pre-election promise was for a healthcare plan 'better' than the ACA/Obamacare.
