Hello Palm Garden Family, And what a beautiful afternoon it is! If you turn on the news there’s a lot of talk about what’s going to happen next. I could hear anxiety and fear over healthcare reform. I heard pundits speculate that our current healthcare system will be pulled back entirely. Others said nothing is going to change. And then The Washington Post had an article yesterday that kind of confirmed all of the speculation:
“While it’s pretty much a given that the Affordable Care Act won’t survive a Trump presidency and Republican Congress in its current form, there are sweeping implications of reversing a law that has reached in so many ways into our health care system. The government has never undone a major benefits program after it has taken effect — and neither the incoming administration nor GOP lawmakers know exactly how they’ll replace it.” (Cha and Goldstein, 11/17) I think it’s clear all the anxiety stems from the words “sweeping implications.” Right? How will this affect us?
