Republicans in Congress are expected to vote for high-risk pools in Trumpcare, to replace insurance for those with pre-existing conditions.

These pools have never worked in the states where they have been tried.

LLS and cancer groups will need to rally those with pre-existing to inundate Republicans in Congress with calls and letters stressing the failure of these plans.

Ryan claims less than 10% of those under 65 would fall into this situation. Objective observers expect the percentage to be 27%.
That would result in a death spiral for high-risk pools (pun intended).

This year will be a fight for the lives of many CML patients. Expect some horrific TV ads.
