Where is the proof of Pelosi’s masterful legislation?

From NBC News here:

“You want me to sing my praises?” she asked defiantly. “Well, I’m a master legislator. I am a strategic, politically astute leader. My leadership is recognized by many around the country, and that is why I’m able to attract the support that I do.”

If she puts forth Obamacare as proof of her masterful legislation skills then she’s more than a bit fucked in the head.

If Obamacare was masterfully created without and individual mandate and all the other aspects of it that have caused massive political backlash, and if premiums got under control as promised then there would be no opportunity for the Republicans to do what they’re trying to do to it now.

Fact.  If it was more popular they wouldn’t fuck with it.

And as for her political astuteness, did she blindly support Hillary Clinton?  How well did that turn out?

Ahem.

Wow, great line for Repub healthcare destroyer!

From here:

“Can I be disrespectful on behalf of all the people you’re gonna kill?” responded one constituent who was angry over the health care vote.

It’s not an exaggeration.  If this new healthcare bill passes people are going to die because of it.  I have no clue how many but Americans will die because of it.

We are now entering Kookieland re: healthcare!

From CBS News here:

GOP congressman: “Nobody dies because they don’t have access to health care”

This is true.  We have a friend who has cancer and we told her it was really unnecessary for her to go to the doctor and get chemotherapy and radiation treatment.

We told her it was much better to stay home and take a few naps.

And maybe wear a necklace of garlic to ward off the cancer.

President WankerNutz takes a victory lap for piece of shit health care bill

From CNBC here:

“I tell you, people suffered so badly with the ravages of Obamacare. As far as I’m concerned your premiums will come down,” said Trump after the vote. “This will get passed through the Senate. I feel so confident.”

As long as El Trump-o feels confident then everybody is going to just bow down and do whatever they can to keep him happy.

I feel confident about that.

 

It sounds boring but this is how Republicans will kill people

From the Guardian here:

The revised Republican plan would permit states to apply for waivers that allow them to opt out of a handful of crucial mandates in the Affordable Care Act. And under the proposal, states, if they meet certain conditions, could allow insurers to charge sicker enrollees more.

It all sounds reasonable on the screen but it’s not.  As soon as a state can get waivers they can start lowering the quality or denying care to citizens of that state.  It’s some insane form of state’s rights and it’s has been a problem since Obamacare was formulated.

You can not trust these states, especially former slave states to cover all their citizens, especially poor African Americans.  It doesn’t appear to be a racist thing they’ve crafted into their new healthcare bill but it is.

Only in America does the government cut healthcare to fund tax cuts for rich assholes and corporations!!

From CBS News here:

The president is now doubling down on an AHCA revival, which is needed to cut Medicaid by nearly $1 trillion, those budget savings deemed necessary to fund comprehensive tax reform.

It’s not tax reform, these are tax cuts for people who already have really low taxes.

Fucking disgusting.
