“A lot of people will be in a lot of trouble if they let this happen.”
A small-business owner in Florida worries that the repeal of the Affordable Care Act could mean the end of his medication—or worse.
I’m scared to death that I’m going to lose my health care. If Obamacare is repealed, I just might, because of my pre-existing condition—and then I’ll have to choose between death or severe illness and bankruptcy.
Repeal could mean the exchanges and subsidies would stop working for me, and my premiums would skyrocket because of my pre-existing condition. I might have to divorce my partner of 22 years to declare bankruptcy and sell the house. It’s the only way I’d be able to afford my medication. We just got married last year.
