This plan just keeps getting better and better.

I think the GOP is going for single digit voter approval on this turkey.

The GOP faithful would still support it if they believe they’d never need Medicaid.

Be careful driving past nursing homes if this bill becomes law - they’ll be ejecting out so many elderly residents they’ll be chucking them out the windows.

Heard a piece on NPR this morning about rural Modoc county out here in California (trying to find a link to the story). They were interviewing a clinic operator who said that they signed people up with an insurer through Covered California without ever disclosing that they were getting anything through the expanded Medicaid program because so many of these poor rural people are so hostile to the federal government even though they are in many respects the biggest beneficiaries of the system.

I fear you vastly underestimate the number of your fellow Americans who don’t believe a social safety net is their problem or should be paid for from their taxes.
