Trumpcare: Die Quickly (Update:

Via Digby, this: Trumpcare, in the Senate version, cuts Medicaid by 25%. This is what that means for real people:

Digby nails it:

People, we are an incredibly wealthy country. We don't have to deny heath care to our most vulnerable citizens. We don't have to deny it to anyone. We have the money. We are just being run by radical zombies who have only one thought in their minds as they rampage through the country: tax cuts for Ivanka. It's their only purpose in life.

That's it -- the whole health care "repeal and replace Obamacare" scam is just another way to put more money in the offshore accounts of the super-rich.

Sidebar: I can't help but consider that this reflects another facet of the "alt-right", white supremacist, neo-fascist thinking of today's Republican party: anyone who needs these services is, by definition, inferior. Better, to their way of thinking, if they were just disposed of.

Update: And, from the Dominionist in Chief:

Because we've all seen how well that has worked in the past. In other words, "You're on your own, you working-class suckers!"
