This is what you got when you voted for republicans to lead our nation. A party beholden to the wealthy over all other concerns. Now I may not be the sharpest knife in the rack but even I get that many will see this for what it is well before the national election of 2018. I know that republicans know this as well so it makes me wonder just what they have planned between now and then to offset this horrible publicity nightmare? Surely it will be a manufactured setting that diverts our attention from their duplicitous actions on repealing and dismantling health care for tens of millions of Americans. Something on the order of a national crisis involving war somewhere as a pretext.
Yes, I am accusing republicans of being liars and thieves with our blood and treasure. Nixon did it when he prolonged the war behind Johnson's back as a campaign strategy to get elected in 1968, https://www.nytimes.com/2016/12/31/opinion/sunday/nixons-vietnam-treachery.html?_r=0. Even though his act caused the deaths of tens of thousands of American and Vietnamese lives. This is who the republican party is, a sack of liars who will say and do anything to get elected so that they can retain the power to help their wealthy driven agenda. It is only when republicans are in power that the inequality of income gap widens because of their incessant drive to lower taxes for the wealthy and cutting programs aimed at lessening the inequality income gap for the less well off. So when the Senate takes their turn at the House bill to repeal Obamacare, remember it isn't so much about denying health care to tens of millions of Americans, it is about providing the wealthy with even more tax cuts they absolutely don't need.
