As Trumpcare Shames America, Canada’s Healthcare Getting High Fives

Canadian Health Minister, Jane Philpott and Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, Paul Ryan

Today, Jane Philpott, Minister of Health for Canada, is literally getting high fives for new health care deals. Coinciding with this news, Paul Ryan and the GOP are facing massive criticism for their own Trumpcare efforts, even from right-wing extremist Breitbart.

Compare and contrast these tweets:

And then there is this:

Canada’s deals today include the provinces of Ontario, Quebec, and Alberta.  Elderly care, front-line services, mental health, as well as funds to deal with the opioid crisis in Alberta are areas that will be positively affected starting today.

“Certainly we’ve heard loudly and clearly from all Canadians that making significant improvements to our health-care system, and stepping up historic new investments in both home care, as our population ages, and in mental health, which is increasingly of concern for so many Canadians, is exactly the right thing to do,” remarked Justin Trudeau.

For Trump and Republicans, it does not appear that any high fives are in order, as they finally got their wish to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, replacing it with a plan that has been instantly criticized for helping a well-to-do minority of the population. In fact, it’s the Republican voters who may ultimately have the most to lose.

Even Extremist Right-Wing Breitbart, founded by Trump’s right-hand man, Steve Bannon, is coming down hard on the so-called American Health Care Act. Breitbart released an article with the headline of, “7 Reasons Why Obamacare 2.0 Is All But Guaranteed To Impose Crushing Costs On Voters, Hurt Trump’s Base, And Hand Power Back To The Democrats.”

Turns out that older, rural, working-class voters will likely be hurt the most by the new plan. Who would have guessed? But hey, we all tried to warn them. The question is, have Republicans finally gotten their wish, only to alienate and literally kill their own voter base?
