As we’ve reported, the GOP-run House voted to pass their replacement for the Affordable Care Act today — and Donald Trump and Paul Ryan jumped at the opportunity to give themselves a pat on the back. Obviously.
Just a reminder: this piece-of-shit bill still needs to be voted on in the Senate.
Just another reminder: this piece-of-shit bill considers things like sexual assault, postpartum depression, C-sections, abortions, domestic violence as pre-existing conditions. Are you paying attention?
In a celebratory appearance after the House’s vote, Drumpf said:
“This is a great plan. I actually think it will get even better. This is a repeal and replace of Obamacare. Make no mistake about it.”
“This has really brought the Republican Party together. As much as we’ve come up with a really incredible health care plan, this has brought the Republican Party together. We’re going to get this finished.”
The Donald went on to declare Obamacare “essentially dead,” saying:
“It’s dead, it’s essentially dead. If we don’t pay lots of ransom money over to the insurance companies, it would die.”
So wonderful seeing our POTUS dancing on the graves of the millions of people (namely, women, the elderly, people with disabilities, etc.) who will lose health insurance because of this heartless legislation.
CALL YOUR REPS.
