Constructed in complete secrecy under the demand of traitor Mitch McConnell, the Senate version of “Trumpcare” will be revealed today. The following are expected to be the basics of this legislation.
Taxes on the one-percent needed to fund Obamacare will be repealed. Another gift to Donald Trump.
Medicaid funding will be reduced, as it is in the House version. However, the time frame will be extended.
All funding for Planned Parenthood will be removed, leaving thousands of low-income and impoverished women, primarily minorities, without affordable reproductive healthcare.
The requirement that all Americans purchase healthcare will be rescinded, further reducing the available funding for the program.
Companies with more than 50 employees will no longer be required to provide health insurance for their employees; another gift to the wealthy.
The senate bill is very similar to the House bill. Pregnancy and mental health will not be covered by Trumpcare, along with most other common health conditions. Basically, McConnell rubber-stamped the horrific version passed by a single vote in the House, with the assistance of Lyin Paul Ryan.
I want to do something the Republican Party refuses to offer to the American people; I want to tell the truth.
They have no interest in providing the American people with adequate healthcare. They have two goals; cut taxes for Donald Trump, and repeal Obamacare.
All 320 million Americans are not the concern of GOP politicians. They continue to represent Trump and the other members of the one-percent. Honestly stated, Republicans will be guilty of the murder of thousands of Americans each year who will be unable to secure healthcare. 131 million Americans have preexisting conditions under Obamacare. Millions more will be added under Trumpcare. If you vote for Republicans, you hate yourself and your family, and believe that they are inferior to GOP politicians and do not deserve to have adequate healthcare.
What more can I say? All ‘real’ Republicans are no longer in Washington. Those who use the label today are actually members of the ‘American Fascist Party.’
This is a very sad time for real Americans and the country I once loved.
Please re-post; thank you.
