It is a big, big deal here in New Mexico too. You cannot just let people die because they don't have health insurance!
OAKLAND, Calif. – As Congressional Republicans rush their proposed replacement for the Affordable Care Act – also known as Obamacare – through committee hearings, California’s political leaders and health care analysts warn that the measure’s severe cuts and soaring costs could cause millions of people to lose their health coverage.

Speaking to reporters March 8, California’s Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones called the bill “a recipe for disaster for the health insurance market,” and warned that soaring premiums could lead to millions losing coverage.
Other political leaders including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco, and U.S. Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris, both Democrats, and the state’s Democratic House members, are also expressing concern about the proposed American Health Care Act.

Earlier this year, in an op-ed published by the Los Angeles Daily News, Feinstein warned that nearly 5 million Californians – around one-eighth of the state’s population – would lose their health coverage.
