Jesus. In a bill reorganizing one-fifth of the U.S. economy, House Republicans have passed a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare. There was no time to read this bill. Because of the rush, no one can know the exact impact, but it was celebrated as a political “win” for President Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan.
Of course, the broad themes are clear:
- millions of Americans will lose access to medical care
- as a result, tens of thousands will die prematurely
- the wealthy will get a big tax cut
That’s the broad outline.
Reckless governance, deep immorality, class warfare.
Behold the House Republicans and the President at happy hour.
