After months of secrecy and backroom deals, the Senate Republicans finally released their version of the AHCA. If you thought the House version was bad, the Senate version is worse. When the Republicans warned us that the passage of the ACA would bring us death panels, they were right. What they did not tell us was that it was a self-fulfilling prophecy.
I am really struggling to not call this bill evil because there is a lot in it to suggest that it is the work of men with evil intent. The bill completely guts Medicaid, not just the expansion. People and children who rely on it are going to find themselves without. Those of us with traditional plans through our employers are going to find ourselves paying higher premiums, higher deductibles, and having yearly and lifetime caps. This is worse than the system we had before the Democrats messed it up.
This bill is a transfer of the wealth from the poor and middle class to the wealthy.
