Don't Cut Medicaid, No AHCA
The people with the most at stake recognize this secretive, half-hearted, spiteful, nonsense ACHA bill as the danger it is, because they have lived their lives conscious of the world as threat. Those with just a little less to lose need to see the same thing--an ethos that doesn't give a damn about your weak, potentially failing human body, so much as it cares about tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires. We have a government that wants to be pro-life for the life-long disabled, but provides no assurances about how they will live; that pretends to admire workers and veterans, but fails to understand their possible disability and needs. The reality is, so many people rely on our health care system we need to consider it a right--it is for the premature and the congenitally ill their life-raft, for the elderly their peace of mind.
This whole bill promises to be a shambles--worse than the status quo before Obamacare. But when you see a Senate that prefers to see protestors who have laid their fragile bodies down removed before they even care to think about those people's needs? What more do you need to know? They don't want to see them, because they don't know how to cover or consider them.
And that is a shame. A crying shame.
