At its core, Trumpcare is about the massive tax cuts repealing Obamacare will bring to the rich—$7 million for each of the 400 highest-earning taxpayers. But that's not enough for them. They have to destroy Medicaid and take health care away from children, the disabled, the elderly, and the working poor while they're at it. Because they need more and bigger tax cuts for the rich.
They are taking $880 billion from Medicaid, drastically curtailing the program, and telling states that they'll just have to make the tough decisions about who lives and who dies because there just isn't the money anymore to help everyone.
Sometimes you have to see it to believe it:
There’s one group who really benefits from this, it’s the people who’ve never had to worry about how to pay for lifesaving health care for themselves or their families. Nobody else matters, if you’re a Republican.
That’s fundamentally what all this is about. Killing the poor to give to the rich. As usual.
Call your member of Congress now at 202-224-3121, and demand they vote NO on a renewed Trumpcare that is worse than the one before. Remind them they work for you.
