“If enacted, it would be the largest single transfer of wealth to the rich from the middle class and poor in American history, this disgrace proposed when the nation’s rich own more of the nation’s wealth and receive the highest percent of American income since the Robber Barons of the late nineteenth century.”
“The Senate bill appears to retain the Affordable Care Act’s subsidies for poorer Americans. But starting in 2020, the subsidies would no longer be available for many of the working poor who now receive them, nor for anyone who’s not eligible for Medicaid.”
“Another illusion: The bill seems to keep the Affordable Care Act’s Medicaid expansion. But the expansion is phased out, starting in 2021. The core of the bill – where its biggest savings come from – is a huge reduction in Medicaid, America’s healthcare program for the poor, elderly, and disabled.”
Thanks Mister Robert Reich for the finely worded explanation of who’s being sold down the river.
Impeach Trump and other bastards in the GOP.
