First Name2-- Potentially effective story because it speaks to the direct cost of health care. My husband injured himself at work over a year ago, and I about to have a second surgery from that injury. While he was out on medical leave, his company fired him to fill the position, and we lost his medical benefits. I qualify for the ACA Medicaid expansion, but he's a green card holder so we purchase his insurance through healthcare.gov. we can only afford the premium because of the ACA subsidy. We both have asthma and our inhalers would cost $400/month without the ACA. But on workers comp, we're only getting $326/week for a family of 4.Medicaid3659973

Sarah2--First case of someone HIV+ I'm 60 yrs. old, HIV+, and without Medicaid I wouldn't have any medical coverage. My HIV medicines would be impossible to pay for since I'm on disability. I have High-Blood pressure and other pre-existing ailments. Without Medicaid Expansion, many Women and Children will lose healthcare coverage. The elderly can't afford the price of some medicines now, what will happen if you destroy the only thing that's working for the poor and disadvantaged. I BEG YOU PLEASE DON'T!Medicaid3685093

SarahAs a women currently pregnant, I am worried about the proposed cuts mean to me now and for any future pregnancies. Will my pregnancy be considered a pre-existing condition like it has in the past? Will I be able to access affordable mental healthcare? One of my prescriptions is already $270 a month! I have a niece that has Type I diabetes. I am worried about how she will be able to receive treatment in the future, especially as she ages and changes insurance.Through a job3358903
