By now you've probably heard all the hate directed towards #Trumpcare and the upcoming vote to repeal and replace Obamacare in the Senate that promises to strategically target the most sick and vulnerable in society. This bill has been called "racist," "part of the war on women," and another example of the administration's assault on the LGBTQ community.

The CBO estimates 22 million people will lose their health insurance under Trumpcare; Senate Democrats rallied behind Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to disavow the bill, and even some Republicans are on the fence about the bill. President Donald Trump himself has called the bill "mean" in a closed door meeting, and then reaffirmed this in a Sunday morning interview on Fox & Friends.

And breaking today, Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has delayed the #healthcare vote until after Congress' 4th of July recess in hopes of attracting more Republican support for the bill.

However, a group that is rarely talked about in the healthcare debate are #Young Professionals between the ages of 27-32, who make upwards of $70,000 a year. This bill will greatly help them greatly, and here's five reasons why:

1. Tax cuts

Everyone knows the top income earners in the country are taxed to hell. Much revenue generated by top earners goes back to the government, thus giving young professionals little incentive to work hard and be successful. Being "well off" is not all it's cracked up to be when all your hard-earned dollars are being taken away from you by an often incompetent government. Why even strive for advancement in your profession or deal with the added responsibility of your job when you're just going to be punished for it anyway? Under Trumpcare, younger people will have more freedom with their income, allowing them to spend more and stimulate our struggling economy.

Already, politicians in D.C. have mortgaged away our future over the past eight years. This plan would be a good first step to paying us back!

2. Don't need it, don't pay for it

Such a simple idea: Why do I need health insurance if I'm a healthy young person who eats right and exercises regularly? Why should I have to pay for those who develop illness based on their own poor lifestyle choices?

Most twenty-somethings aren't frequenting hospitals and their doctor's offices. So why pay for something you don't need to use at this point? Why not use the money you would have spent on healthcare, and put it in your wallet instead? It's so simple, yet not understood by the political class who just love to tell us how to live our lives.

Again, Trumpcare allows young people more flexibility in what we spend our money on!

3. No more individual mandate

Tying in with #2, Trumpcare does away with the individual mandate placed on us by the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. The individual mandate requires every American to purchase health insurance and penalizes those who do not have it.

An added tax for living right and being healthy. The GOP plan will repeal the individual mandate. That's one less tax we have to worry about.

4. More competition = better product for consumers

This is a basic concept of capitalism. Competition influences innovation and greater benefits for the consumer. Trumpcare takes that government sheath off of the healthcare industry and allows for a better product for people shopping around for policies.

5. Obamacare is collapsing

We've known it would happen since it became the law of the land seven years ago. Insurers are leaving Obamacare, and the whole thing is set to come tumbling down by fall (what an aptly named season). Deductibles are skyrocketing, which creates a unique problem for policy holders. Yes, they are insured, but they can't even use their policies. It's the classic hostage situation liberals have used since the 1990s... Give the people what they want (in name only), and throw a blanket over the people still suffering.

Plus, Trumpcare will force all those people to get finally jobs. So we'll have more people to wait on us, pump our gas, and walk our dogs. And that is awesome.

Also: Did President Trump say it's "O.K." if Trumpcare fails?
