President Trump and Speaker Ryan: Create a nonpartisan healthcare taskforce

This petition had 1,874 supporters

President Trump and House Speaker Ryan:

The American Health Care Act being proposed by Republicans in Congress will, according to the most recent CBO analysis, leave 24 million Americans uninsured by 2026 if signed into law. 

People who are sick or dead broke because of their medical bills have trouble finding and keeping good jobs, purchasing goods and services, and paying their taxes. Healthy people who are unburdened by crippling medical bills have much greater career opportunities, which in turn allow them to purchase homes, raise families, and build our economy and our future as a nation. 

Taking away health insurance from millions of Americans as a strategy to reduce the deficit is bound to fail and, as a result, lead to substantial suffering and debt for many of our most vulnerable.

Our nation has some of the world's top scholars, research institutions, and think tanks, yet the creation of the American Health Care Act seems to have been created in a vacuum and without consultation from a broad array of health experts.

The American Health Care Act, as it now stands, is a far cry from the best policy solution we can develop.

That is why I am calling on you President Trump and Speaker Ryan, as men of your words, to create a nonpartisan task force comprised of our nation's best doctors, economists, and health experts to craft policy that is both economically and morally sound. 

We're all in this together, and as Abraham Lincoln once stated, "You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today".
