The weekly Fighting Back post is also an Open News Thread.
The Weekly Democratic Party Address was delivered by Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY). In it he calls the Republican Senate’s bill “monstrous. Cruel. Even deadly”.
(In this week’s Democratic Address, Congressman John Yarmuth asks why Republicans continue to ignore Trumpcare’s devastating impacts.)
This past week, we learned that the Senate’s latest iteration of Trumpcare, ‘Graham-Cassidy’ they call it, would likely take health coverage away from approximately 32 million people – a staggering ten percent of the American public. […]
If Republicans in Congress are so desperate to take action on health care, Democrats would be more than happy to work with them on any proposal, provided it meets just one single condition: it has to make things better for the American people, not worse.[T]he bill Mitch McConnell could hold a vote on next week – with no debate and only a sham hearing – will unquestionably cause untold suffering in every community in America.
President* Trump was onto something when he called the House bill ‘mean.’ But he stopped too soon. The Senate bill is monstrous. Cruel. Even deadly.
