Once Again, We Have To Beg Our Elected Representatives Not To Kill Us

Republicans will try to pass Obamacare repeal by the end of the month, and this time, they may have the votes.

It is extremely important that you call your senators today at 202-224-3121 or send a fax at faxzero.com and tell them to say no to Graham-Cassidy -- the latest zombie version of Obamacare repeal.

This one is worse, and really tricky. Graham-Cassidy includes smaller cuts during the period that the CBO usually scores, and then healthcare funding drops drastically as soon as it gets out of the CBO scoring window.

Aren't they clever?

The real kicker? This one blatantly allows insurers to jack up your premiums as soon as you or a family member gets sick. Bye bye, preexisting condition protections!

And it looks like John McCain will vote for this version.

It's depressing that we have to periodically beg our elected representatives not to kill us, but it's the only thing that seems to work.
