The GOP has finally proposed their alternative to the Affordable Care Act, the American Health Care Act, and it is just as horrible as we imagined. President Trump is just now finding out that healthcare is complicated. It is also cutting Medicaid expansions and making healthcare more expensive.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) said this about it:
“Well, we’re getting rid of the individual mandate. We’re getting rid of those things that people said that they don’t want. And you know what? Americans have choices. And they’ve got to make a choice. And so maybe rather than getting that new iPhone that they just love and they want to go spend hundreds of dollars on that, maybe they should invest in their own health care. They’ve got to make those decisions themselves.”
You out-of-touch sack of shit! People are living paycheck to paycheck and unable to afford food! There are millions of Americans working for minimum wage, and they still end up needing assistance.
Republicans treat poor people like leeches, and it needs to stop. Make this asshole pump his own gas or ring up his groceries or even answer his own phones.
