Lose, Lose

The news media is apparently composed of idiots. Many of them treated today's ridiculous House vote to "repeal and replace" Obamacare like it was a huge win for Republicans and, especially, Trump.

Passing this bill was a win for no one except the rich.

Make no mistake, this terrible law will have a very difficult time getting through the Senate and will likely be completely changed before it does, so it's not really even a "win" for Republicans yet, despite their celebrations. But if it does get passed and signed into law, here's what happens:

And why did they do this to their own constituents? Two reasons.

Reason # 1:

Reason #2:

The AHCA will give $594 billion in tax breaks to the very rich over ten years. The wealthiest 400 households in America would get average tax breaks of $7 million each. Link

Throwing older, sicker and poorer Americans under the bus, TO BANKRUPTCY, SICKNESS AND DEATH, is because Republicans hate Obama and want to give more money to people who already have more than they can possibly spend in their lifetimes.

This vote today was probably the most immoral political event I've seen in my lifetime.

And this is the reason this wasn't a win for House Republicans. Every one of them MUST be thrown out in 2018. They MUST pay for this vote. Make them pay. If you vote for any of these monsters, you are complicit in this crime against humanity,

Oh, and Trump? If he signed the bill that was passed today, he would break almost every single promise about healthcare he made during his campaign.

Try not to act too surprised.
