    The ACA is workable and only needs minor adjustments to make it so much better. Replacement is not needed and will be catastrophic to the people of the United States of America. The only reason why Paul Ryan wants to repeal and replace it is to allow a huge tax break to be implemented which will transfer wealth to the richest people from the poor. To do this and support this type of legislation is proof positive that the supporting members of Congress do not have the best interest of the American people and our society. Any representative that supports this replace and repeal actions will not get my financial support or vote. In fact I will contribute to their opponents vigorously.

    Very disappointed that this new bill didn't address at all the elephant in the room - why is medical care so expensive in the United States? Our health care is by far the most expensive of all the developed nations. Much of these heart wrenching issues can be addressed by addressing the fundamental issues that drive healthcare costs - suppliers of medical equipment and drugs making money hand over fist, insurance companies forcing hospitals and doctors to charge rack rates for the uninsured. Oh but this means pissing off the lobbyists, doesn't it? Time to start electing officials who aren't bought by the system.

    Impeach tRump. He is a criminal, traitor and money laundering mobster. FBI has at least 28 people targeted in tRump Russia investigations. Maybe more- up to 42people one source says. RICO. FARA. FISAWarrants. At least two and maybe even six or more FISA warrants. Grand juries. Two, three maybe more grand juries. Sealed indictments. Looking for indictments soon. This WH is criminal and corrupt. Illegal. Illegitimate. Must prosecute to fullest extent of the law. TRump is a traitor who colluded and coordinated with Russia to attack the USA. Pence vetted Flynn. Criminals from the top right o. Down. Criminals.

    All Americans deserve basic healthcare. Health care is a fundamental human right. If Congresspeople have healthcare than all citizens should have the same policy. We pay and we demand basic health care.

    Do not replace the ACA. We need health care for all Americans. You cannot make healthcare unaffordable for the majority, make things better for Americans not worse. Do better by us.

    Do not repeal! This is not what the people want. Keep Obamacare until we get Universal Healthcare.

    All Americans must have affordable healthcare regardless of preexisting conditions. If some are left out we all lose. You represent all Americans not just the wealthy. Trumpcare is a giant step backwards!

    This doesn't even scratch the surface of why everyone deserves affordable healthcare but my husband lives with Tourette Syndrome which causes constant, sometimes painful, physical and verbal tics. His doctors suspect that he developed it in the womb, when his mother was doing cocaine while she was pregnant with him. This condition is manageable only with medication and completely outside of his control. I have seen it damage his hands, give him hernias, and break his teeth. The tics can be ruthless and unpredictable. As a 28+ year old couple living below the poverty line, neither of us have the support of our parents' insurance or the money to buy his meds full price and so there is absolutely no way for him to get the medicine that makes his condition livable without the ACA. This isn't close to the most horrifying story I've heard with regard to why everyone NEEDS affordable healthcare to live, but it's mine and as the person who loves him more than anything in this world I am begging you - please don't take this away from us and everyone else who depends on the ACA to live full lives. At the very least, replace the ACA with something that helps the poor and stop pandering to the richest among us. With the AHCA you abandon your base and literally feed them to sharks - whether those sharks be cancer, depression, TS or any other condition.

    Abandon this tax cut ruse. You represent the people not rich people's bank accounts. Resign now. You are illegitimate.

    I opposed TrumpCare, and will continue to hold YOU accountable for preserving quality, affordable coverage under the ACA. The latest amendment makes the bill even worse by allowing states to end protections for people with pre-existing conditions. I expect you to stand up for the tens of thousands in our district who could be charged higher premiums.

    I am very upset and angry that the House passed this legislation. Let me tell you what I see: I see a group of politicians who don't support women's basic rights. I see politicians who don't care that people will have to go broke or will go without health care. I see politicians who are more concerned with lining their own pockets instead of continuing a health care act that was working. I see politicians who are racist, wanting to get rid of a black President's contribution because they hated him. But mostly I see politicians who don't care what happens to the people they have sworn to represent. I will work with all I can give to continue to resist this obscene behavior from the GOP, and I will work to get my representative out of office in 2018. This blatant disregard for the people of the United States cannot continue.

    Obama care should continue until health care is available to everyone regardless of income! Passing it off to states where gerrymandering runs rampant does not work!

    As a 10-year survivor of a rare cancer with a 30% 5-year survival rate, I am distressed by the possibility of losing coverage due to my pre-existing condition. Before the ACA went into effect, I lost my home and went bankrupt because of the catastrophic cost of cancer treatment, even though I was covered by an employers' plan. Without ACA protections, I will not be able to afford medical care in case of a recurrence. Millions of people are in similar situation, and it is nothing short of tragic that our congress and president would even consider repealing the ACA and replacing it with something worse.

    The lives of many are at stake if this bill passes. Healthcare should not be determined by insurance companies or pharmaceutical industry or food production. Let's focus on prevention AND also provide logical life-saving healthcare for every person of all ages in our country. We owe this for the benefit of our countries mental, physical, and spiritual health.

    Please do not repeal the ACA! Yes, it needs repair/ improvement, but replacing it just to do it is irresponsible for congress!

    The ACA is a basic human right. Without it you'll have the majority of the population without health care- resulting in major health issues, psychologically and physically. Because it was established by the democrats and the republicans aren't lining their pockets from it does not mean it needs to be repealed. And exactly what are they replacing it with?

    Don't dismantle Obamacare !!!! Just make it better. Why are you trashing what has been done? It's childish and rude. I feel like I'm in a Kindergarden class. If you care about all people including the lower and middle class show us. The middle class is what makes America. They are America!!! Are you for yourselves and your stocks and your money or for the American people? My Friends in Europe are just flabbergasted by your actions. America is becoming an embarrassment of the world. Make Trump Accountable for his actions!!!! This your America too! Do you really want to destroy it? 😡. The sad part about HR 7. Your granddaughter s and wives will just wisk your children off to Canada so they can have an abortion. The ones that can't afford it will end up on your payrolls. 😡
