The Cruelty and Fraudulence of Mitch McConnell’s Health Bill

A few days ago the tweeter in chief demanded that Congress enact “a beautiful new HealthCare bill” before it goes into recess. But now we’ve seen Mitch McConnell’s latest version of health “reform,” and “beautiful” is hardly the word for it. In fact, it’s surpassingly ugly, intellectually and morally. Previous iterations of Trumpcare were terrible, but this one is, incredibly, even worse. Before I get to what makes it worse, let’s talk about the one piece of the new bill that may sound like a step in the right direction, and why it’s largely a scam.

   Robert directs your attention to this comment at the linked source;

Richard Arizona 10 minutes ago During the Great Depression, Herbert Hoover stated on several occasions that it was not the federal government's job to provide food for its citizens [despite the fact that there were no jobs for these same citizens through which they could feed their families.] (Revisit the the Army bonus marchers' 1932 march, occupation, and expulsion from Washington ordered by Hoover.) Fast forward 85 years and one can hear Hoover's words echo throughout the Republican "health care" plan : "It's not the federal government's job to provide adequate health care for its citizens." [despite the fact that, through no fault of their own own, they are unable to afford health insurance.] A disgraceful legacy for a truly disgraceful and immoral political party.
