It is amazing that everyone in the media and many in Congress has their “shorts in a wad”.. all based on a CBO projection whose estimates have been way off the mark previously, especially when they under estimated the cost of ACA(Obamacare) by ONE TRILLION DOLLARS.
Of course, even with the implementation of the ACA we had some THIRTY MILLION that still does not have health insurance.
They have claimed that 36,000 thousand/yr could die if ACA is repealed https://thinkprogress.org/heres-how-many-people-could-die-every-year-if-obamacare-is-repealed-ae4bf3e100a2#.gyr66uwt4
A recent survey released by Pain News Network Survey Finds CDC Opioid Guidelines Harming Patients that one year after the CDC opiate dosing guidelines, 70% of chronic pain pts have had their pain medication reduced or eliminated by their prescriber.
No media wide OUTRAGE… exploring all the millions of acute and chronic pain pts that would not receive adequate medical care ? No estimated “death toll”.
