Graham-Cassidy want to take away health insurance from millions and not provide health insurance for pre-existing conditions. Senators Corker and Alexander from the great state of Tennessee support their efforts.

More from the Washington Post, Another execrable health-care bill proves bad ideas never die.

Just heard Gov. Christie, New Jersey, say that New Jersey has a law requiring coverage for pre-existing conditions. That's one of the many reasons bills giving money to the states won't work in the South. Southern states don't care about those in need.

Please write/call your U.S. senators and representatives. Let them know we need to keep the ACA. Our state cannot be trusted to help the people not getting health insurance from an employer. Then, maybe, someday we can work towards Medicare for all. Right now, though, we need to keep what we have.

I was surprised until I found out John Kennedy is a republican U.S. Senator from Louisiana and thankfully no relation to the JFK family.
