Like the rodent he is, Mitch
McTurtle rarely spoke about the bill because, you know, evil works best as a surprise but then it finally had to be revealed, or reviled, and now he’s talking.
And talking up this new Senate bill, GOPDon’tCare, that would devastate millions of Americans, raising the costs of insurance for most of us, denying coverage to even more, but, you know, giving a tax break to the wealthiest Americans because that’s all the GOP cares about.
So, McTurtle poked his head out of his shell yesterday, trying, and failing, at least right now, to get a vote on his hate-filled piece of legislation, and trying to deny the fact that the Congressional Budget Office [CBO] found that 22 million Americans would lose coverage under his plan and millions more would spend thousands of dollars in increased out of pocket cost.
“The Senate will soon take action on a bill that the Congressional Budget Office just confirmed will reduce the growth in premiums under Obamacare, reduce taxes on the middle class, and reduce the deficit.”
Those are lies. Think about that, especially uyou Kentucky morons who keep voting this liar back into office, you Kentucky morons who will no doubt lose health insurance, who will no doubt pay more in taxes because you keep reelecting this fool.
First of all, the facts is that more than 90% of tax cuts will go to the richest 1% of Americans and more than half to the wealthiest 0.1%. Middle-class families and virtually everyone else will pay more in taxes under McConnell’s plan.
Cool! Lose insurance, pay more taxes! That’s the GOP way!
Second, premiums will skyrocket for the majority of Americans, especially those who need care the most, and the elderly living on social security.
But one thing McTurtle failed to mention, while salivating over his plan to help his billionaire buddies at the expense of everyone else, was the 22 million Americans whose health coverage he is taking away because he serves billionaires.
Seriously; that’s his bill. Many lose coverage and pay more in taxes while the wealthiest Americans who can afford insurance anyway, get a huge tax break.
And don’t get me started on the massive cuts to Medicaid—you know, that thing _____ promised he wouldn’t touch—that will also hurt those most in need.
If that sounds fair to you, sit back down and STFU; if that somehow doesn’t seem fair, pick up a goddamned phone and call your Senators now and tell them if they vote for this atrocity you will work your ass off to vote them out of office.
The number? 202.224.3121.
Stop the GOP from destroying the Middle Class and the poor.
