The zombie Republican "health care" bill has come back again. I put it in quotation marks because it's not really a health care bill at all. It's just another attempt to cut spending so huge tax cuts can be given to the rich and the corporations (the only entities the congressional Republicans care about).
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) hasn't scored the bill yet, but it doesn't take a genius to see it would take health insurance away from millions of American citizens. In fact, it's even worse than the other really bad plans the Senate Republicans came up with, because it just turns health care over to the states.
If you have any doubts about whether this is a bad bill or not, just look at those who have already come out against it:
AMA (American Medical Association)
AARP (American Association of Retired Persons)
NCBH (National Council for Behavioral Health)
ALS Association
American Diabetes Association
American Heart Association
American Lung Association
Arthritis Foundation
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
Family Voices
JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation)
Lutheran Services in America
March of Dimes
National Health Council
National Multiple Sclerosis Society
National Organization for Rare Diseases
Volunteers of America
Womenheart
And the governors of 10 states:
Alaska
Colorado
Ohio
Montana
Pennsylvania
Virginia
Louisiana
Nevada
Massachusetts
Vermont
And I'm sure this list will grow much larger before the bill is voted on. This is a really bad bill, and it will hurt many millions of Americans. It must be defeated.
