Every Republican taking part in the Trumpcare Kamikaze mission will be voted out of office in the 2018 midterms for sure. History is about to repeat itself, only this time, it will be the Republicans who will suffer a bloodbath in the midterm elections next year.
This is political suicide and they know it. Millions of people’s lives will be adversely impacted by this cruel piece of legislation. They aren’t even waiting for the Congressional Budget Office to score the revised legislation. There are even many who have not even read the bill, but they want to pass this on the last day before they break for recess.
Republicans can run, but they can’t hide. They will have to deal with the consequences of millions losing healthcare and many more losing essential benefits that many need to survive. Death panels are indeed coming because there is a huge shortfall proposed for waivers for states to address pre-existing conditions. Mark my words, this is going to be a disaster.
Further, the repeal of the Affordable Care Act would also adversely affect employer plans and may leave consumers in the large group market vulnerable, health care experts suggest. The Republicans could care less because their health care plans that we are paying for is exempted from any such problems.
Nearly 50 percent of Americans receive health insurance through their employers, according the Kaiser Family Foundation. The Brookings Institution estimates about 80 percent of those enrollees, or 110 million Americans, receive coverage through a large employer plan.
May 4, 2017, will be a day that will come back to haunt the heartless decision of Republican lawmakers to walk the plank for an ignoramus, who could care less about the needs of the poor, seniors, people with pre-existing conditions and so on.
The resistance movement just got a whole lot stronger. Hey, Donald Trump, expect the House and possibly Senate to flip in 2018 and you will be a lame duck after year one of your illegitimate presidency.
