The Senate's 'healthcare' bill is designed to strip Americans from insurance for a stupid tax cut
"There's really no possible reason for Republicans to even want this bill except as a tax cut. That's all it provides. Their constituents will suffer, their states will suffer, Americans booted off their health insurance will die preventable deaths, and the whole sodding thing is simply an exercise in drowning the federal government in the bathtub as anti-government groups have demanded for so very long now. That fifty or so senators are negotiating over what perks they might be able to squeeze out of McConnell for selling their own voters out ought to be remarkable. It's not, but it ought to be."
