Although largely remaining out of political issues, President Obama will not remain quiet on the killing of his signature healthcare policy.
While the Senate version of the bill to repeal Obamacare is sociopath-lite, it still destroys the most beneficial tenets of Obamacare that afforded insurance to millions of Americans:
“The Senate bill, unveiled today, is not a health care bill,” he wrote in a Facebook post. “It’s a massive transfer of wealth from middle-class and poor families to the richest people in America.”
We can only hope that hypocrisy is a pre-existing condition that is not covered under Trumpcare as the entire bill was written in total secrecy, force feeding it down the throats of millions of Americans without so much as a single public hearing. On the other hand, Obamacare was debated over the course of two months and even allowed for some Republican amendments. President Obama pointed this disgusting hypocrisy out in his very forceful Facebook post as well:
“But right now, after eight years, the legislation rushed through the House and the Senate without public hearings or debate would do the opposite. It would raise costs, reduce coverage, roll back protections, and ruin Medicaid as we know it. That’s not my opinion, but rather the conclusion of all objective analyses, from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, which found that 23 million Americans would lose insurance, to America’s doctors, nurses, and hospitals on the front lines of our health care system.”
The fact remains that there’s simply no way this bill will be able to muster the necessary 50 Republican votes needed. Not surprisingly, four of the more far-right Republican Senators, much like the sociopathic Freedom Caucus did with the House bill, vowed not to vote for the Senate version since it doesn’t kill enough innocent Americans and Republican Jesus would have none of that. The fact also remains that the infinitely jealous and hopelessly insecure Trump wants anything that has Obama’s name on it completely removed, even if it means killing off many of his low-income supporters.
