Slimy Creature Health Care

Why Republicans were in such a hurry on health care, provides an excellent explanation of the manner in which the dastardly Trumpian health care plan was designed to enable the theft by the Reupublican party of trillions of tax payer dollars to be turned over to the ultrawealthy.

Summarized, the bill was so horrible and so unpopulr that the slimy creatures (LSW term for the Republicans in charge of the bill) felt a need to get it passed before everyone could rise up and seize the capital (LSW’s perception).

The bill was designed to, quote

The latest version that the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office had a chance to analyze would have, over the course of 10 years, cut taxes by $1 trillion, disproportionately benefiting the rich; cut Medicaid spending by $839 billion, exclusively harming the poor and sick; and cut the Affordable Care Act’s health insurance subsidies by about $300 billion, mostly hurting older people of modest means. Add it all up, and the CBO estimated that 24 million people would have lost their health insurance as a result. Not only that, but premiums would have increased 15 percent to 20 percent more than they otherwise would have in the next four years before so many older people were priced out of the market that premiums would have started to come down, and deductibles, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, would have been an average of $1,550 higher.

Slimy creatures….
