I haven’t felt this kind of rage since November 9th.
But, rage, it is.
I’m glad that I told myself that I would NEVER get to the acceptance stage, so I’m back where I was on November 9th.
These sociopaths passed a bill that will remove Health Insurance for 24 MILLION – THAT WE KNOW OF, because that was the first version, and this version is so much worse.
WE KNOW that this is a TAX CUT BILL FOR MILLIONAIRES while taking away MEDICAID from the least of us.
Medicaid provides the funding for adults with disability (not just medical but living expenses like group home rent); medical care for low-income mothers and children; and medical care for the poor elderly, particularly those in nursing homes.
WE KNOW that this puts back in place that you can be denied coverage for PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS, which can range from exczema to cancer to SEXUAL ASSAULT.
WE KNOW that this comes down to being an AGE TAX on Senior Citizens.
WE KNOW that the high-risk pools are underfunded, so, the bullshyt line of people having ‘access’ is indeed just that, BULLSHYT. I have ‘access’ to a Mercedes and a Jaguar, but since I CAN’T AFFORD IT, I CAN’T GET IT. That’s ok, when it comes to a car…NOT SO MUCH WHEN IT COMES TO HEALTH INSURANCE.
WE KNOW NOW, that this is a race to the bottom, allowing states -‘the freedom’ to get rid of the Essential Benefits package.
WE KNOW NOW, that this opening up ‘choice’ across state lines – INCLUDES EMPLOYER-BASED COVERAGE – for those of you who didn’t think that this would apply to you.
WE KNOW that they also allow for lifetime limits in care, which means, past a certain number, you get no more care and then you DIE.
THIS ENTIRE BILL IS NOTHING BUT A DEATH PANEL.
We don’t know how much of a Death Panel, because we don’t have a CBO scoring of it yet.
And then, these sociopaths have the nerve to congratulate themselves, as if they’ve done a wonderful thing.
For everyone who voted for him..and the GOP
Go Phuck Yourself.

@Amy_Siskind @jasoninthehouse How about this? Under the bill that just passed, ovarian cancer is considered a pre-existing condition but testicular cancer is not!

Ran into a stone-faced @RepCummings, contemplating the day. “They take away coverage from 24 million…and they cheer,” he said. “They cheer.” – at United States Capitol Building
