Barack Obama Slams Republican Healthcare Reform Bill
Barack Obama is NOT foolin’ with the shady a$$ Republican’s repeal of his Affordable Care Act.
The GOP have been meeting in secret for weeks to draft a bill that would undo all the work that the 44th POTUS did to ensure that Americans are covered with health insurance.
Trump and his band of soulless, partisan, d-bags are hell-bent on making sure that poor folks continue to suffer and rich people continue to receive breaks, special treatment and privileges not afforded to those who ACTUALLY need them
Then they have the nerve to fix their caviar swallowing mouths call government assistance “entitlements”. SMFH.
Check out some of what Barry had to say in his Facebook address:
But right now, after eight years, the legislation rushed through the House and the Senate without public hearings or debate would do the opposite. It would raise costs, reduce coverage, roll back protections, and ruin Medicaid as we know it. That’s not my opinion, but rather the conclusion of all objective analyses, from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, which found that 23 million Americans would lose insurance, to America’s doctors, nurses, and hospitals on the front lines of our health care system.
The Senate bill, unveiled today, is not a health care bill. It’s a massive transfer of wealth from middle-class and poor families to the richest people in America. It hands enormous tax cuts to the rich and to the drug and insurance industries, paid for by cutting health care for everybody else. Those with private insurance will experience higher premiums and higher deductibles, with lower tax credits to help working families cover the costs, even as their plans might no longer cover pregnancy, mental health care, or expensive prescriptions. Discrimination based on pre-existing conditions could become the norm again. Millions of families will lose coverage entirely.
Simply put, if there’s a chance you might get sick, get old, or start a family – this bill will do you harm. And small tweaks over the course of the next couple weeks, under the guise of making these bills easier to stomach, cannot change the fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation.
Those psycho sycophants who lick Donald’s boots and attempt to rationalize every fart, burp, and completely ignorant policy that he tries to enact will tell you that this bill is good for ‘Merica, but naw.
