Senate GOP Got Obamacare Repeal In Its Tax Cuts
Unlike some shit sandwiches, if you have enough bread, others will eat shit for YOU.
Defying the conventional wisdom that it would be stupid to add more complications to an already contentious bill, Senate Republican couldn't resist adding a repeal of the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate into the tax cuts for the super rich bill. The idea was so toxic that the House left Obamacare repeal out of its version of the tax bill, but Senate Rs just couldn't help themselves, so they popped a couple Tic Tacs and gave a big wet kiss to Donald Trump and the far right. The result, if it passes, would be millions more people uninsured, and much higher premiums for plans in the ACA individual markets.
Before, we were fighting ACA repeal with a hidden tax cut for the rich.
Now, we're fighting a tax cut for the rich with hidden ACA repeal.
