Feast Your Eyes on Trumpcare

Trumpcare McConnell

Mitch McConnell has been cooking up a Medicaid-gutting bill that just like Paul Ryan’s House version, would kick tens of millions of Americans off their healthcare and completely annihilate Planned Parenthood.  Everyone knew it was going to be bad, as only old Republican white men were putting it together behind locked doors in the dead of night and had planned to drop it on the floor for a vote with next to NO time for anyone to read it first.  Forget about the fact that there would be no Congressional Budget Office (CBO) score run on it.

Today, however, the full truth was unveiled on America, as Mitch McConnell cleared his throat of this infected phlegm of a bill in a giant belch.

And, full text of the bill here:

It gets rid of the “Net Investment Tax” (a capital gains tax) for people who make more than $250,000 per year).  A gift to the wealthy by the wealthy that prevents healthcare from being funded at all, ever.

Preexisting conditions are no longer protected for Americans under the Republican bill.  But, as much of an affront this is to Americans not suckling a silver spoon, it is STILL not cruel enough for many Republicans, who lambast McConnell’s Trumpcare bill as “Obamacare lite.”  They want it leaner and more cruel:

Bottom line is that the 142-page bill is Dead on Arrival (DOA, as they say).  Not a single Democrat is a mile away from even bothering spit on it as they are flushing it down, and multiple Republicans can’t even read it without spitting up in their mouths trying not to vomit.

CNN has a nice graphic that includes a list of the Republicans you will want to keep an eye on as likely no-votes.

Republicans To Watch Healthcare Bill WPYou’ve probably seen the 24-hr news-crack networks (like CNN) are focusing on this list.

Crossing into op-ed territory, here:  It’s condescending to have to listen to these asses who obstructed EVERYTHING President Obama tried to accomplish for us and have tried obsessively to take the ACA away from us just to spite the “colored boy” whodunnit.  None of these multi-millionaires gives a lick about working class poor or that dwindling dodo bird, the middle class.  They represent the wealthy and con the rest of us into believing that:

  1.  The rich will shower you with crumbs if you love and bow down low to them,
  2.  If you bow down obediently enough to them that you will be them, of course, and
  3.  “You aren’t the filthy poor you see in the mirror.  You are us, the gilded select.  And, anyone who tells you otherwise is trying to take it from you.  Your birthright.”

Don’t let them make you forget:

“I see all this potential, and I see it squandered. Goddammit, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables, slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need. We’re the middle children of history, man; no purpose or place. We have no Great War, no Great Depression. Our Great War is a spiritual war. Our Great Depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised by television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars. But we won’t; and we’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.” ~Tyler Durden, Fight Club, 1999 (Chuck Palahniuk)

  1. The worst parts of this garbage bill as of now. It’s thick with crap, this latrine of a bill. Here’s a start of the most stank parts discovered so far, Share, share, share.

  2. And, here’s Pence talking to the domestic terrorist anti-female crowd. These are the assholes who murder doctors who aid women. He brags about his proudest moment of seeing this bill passed: the killing of Planned Parenthood.

    Scumbag.

  3. Really well-written. I say this because most op-eds these days go for the glitz and shun the points that matter. You saw and called out each point in this war of morality as if looking through a scope from a helicopter. No misses here, these are the issues we face, and the cruelty with which this bill was crafted is real. I know, it’s hard to believe that a human being could think this way, knowing, especially, that “no man is an island.”

    Karma does work, and chances are we will beg for their mercy because we, the people, do have compassion and an idea of America as a shining city on the hill, completely opposite to a cold, hostile nation that seeks to make the world a dark place.

Whatcha thinkin'?
