Default Re: The GOP's Obamacare repeal plan is out — and it's even worse than anyone expected

The Trump Republican Congress has assembled a [anti] healthcare bill that benefits the rich and shapes portions of healthcare from religious beliefs. Hardest hit will be the poor, women, and the elderly ... precisely the groups who need assisted healthcare the most. This GOP bill also breaks a Trump campaign promise to not meddle at all with Medicare.

A major portion of this Trumpcare plan was hatched by White House Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, who has absolutely no experience in medicine or healthcare. Mulvaney is strictly a bean-counter.

Two groups of Congressional Republicans (The Freedom Caucus/Republican Study Committee) are saying they probably will not support this bill because it doesn't cut (punish the people) enough. Trumpcare in this iteration will probably be catastrophic for the GOP come the midterm 2018 elections.

The OP is another editorial, fake news article.

A couple of major flaws in the OP expose it as partisan propaganda. The CBO warning that millions would lose health insurance if Obamacare is repealed with no replacement becomes Republican proposals deprive millions of health care. A clear cut distortion in an effort to attach the legitimacy of the CBO to a falsehood. The OP then launches into a defense of Federal abortion funding as if that is critical to replacing Obamacare. The Aetna CEO is quoted as saying the private insurance market is collapsing in reference to the impact of Obamacare then claims the proposal will make sure this happens. What a weak criticism.

The OP then blames the Republican proposal for the future collapse of Medicaid ignoring the fact that Obamacare subsidies for Medicaid expansion end in 2019. But no change in the time frame is somehow bad.
If Democrats were confident their nominee actually received more than 80 million votes they wouldn't have more troops occupying Washington, DC than Lincoln had defending the city during the Civil War. Not Joe Biden, Kim Jung Biden.
