Senate Gift To The Wealthy/Lower Income Death Panel Bill



As we watch the GOP cleverly manipulate themselves through repealing the ACA, the level of their desperation and lack of respect for rational Americans is stupefying.  As is our standard policy, let's take a few reads of what is a literal GOP death panel bill.  

CNN's perfectly detailed explanation of how the Senate healthcare bill delivers for the nation's wealth, and at your expense.



National healthcare? 

Once we get passed the reality the GOP did not want any form of national healthcare laws, we can look at how they resisted the Affordable Care Act.

First let's stake a place which places the GOP argument of Democrat secrecy in 2009/10 is comparable to the utter secrecy of Mitch McConnell's 13 man top .01% santa clause / lower income death panel.

Is there any wonder McConnell avoided the scrutiny of Ryan's death panel development (and deliberations)? I suggest there should not be.  Yet, we are now hearing that tried and proven effective strategy from the Right of 'deflect,' misinform, lie and then move-on." Have you heard republicans say, the Democrats developed the ACA in like secrecy? 

Well, it is simply not true, according to fact finders.
Snopes: 

Was the Passage of Obamacare Just as Secretive as GOP Efforts to Repeal It?

False mantra....

CNN five days ago (looking back on 2010)
In 2010, current Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said: "Democrats on Capitol Hill are working behind the scenes on a plan aimed at jamming this massive health spending bill through Congress against the clear wishes of an unsuspecting public." 
Trump's Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, then representing Georgia's 6th Congressional District, said Democrats were "sacrificing the trust of the American people."
With Democrats discussing health care in secret, they're sacrificing the trust of the American people.5:43 PM - 14 Jan 2010

He also told CBS News in 2010: "The negotiations are obviously being done in secret and the American people really just want to know what they are trying to hide."
Oh, how the tables turn.
False mantra aside, let's move back to the Senate Bill.
Last night MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell conducted a set of interviews which bare the Senate's BRCA like a naked butt in below zero temperatures. The segment runs a full ten minutes while laced with commentary and details important to consideration of what the GOP is ramming through the legislature.

We first offer a very short version of, Why I changed my mine on Obamacare. 
MSNBC "catastrophic" CBO report

TrumpCare will come to reality, no doubt.  The ultimate question is how will the nation's rational voters vote in the 2018 mid-term elections.
