The Speaker of the House and our Commander-in-Tweet have recently released, and pushed for a new health-care bill. They have had seven years to prepare for this with the promise of repeal and replace. The president promised coverage for all. The bill does not keep that promise. It will cover fewer people and cost the people who have insurance more. The speaker is most proud of the fact that it cuts Medicare and Medicaid.
The one thing they aren’t talking about is the hundreds of billions in tax cuts to the top 1 percent. So to be fair, we should stop calling it a health-care bill and label it for what it is – a wealth-care bill. A nation’s priorities can usually be found in its budget. For the speaker and tweeter, the wealth of a few is more important than the health of many.
