Scary

Newly minted Colorado congressman Ken Buck (R-Citizens United) tweeted this pic of his finger on the button to vote "yes" on the repeal of ACA.



That's a rather gleeful smile for someone seeking to rain health havoc on his own constituents. According to a congressional report from July 2014 (when Cory Gardner still held the seat):

http://housedocs.house.gov/energycommerce_dem/cec_2014/Health-Care-Reform-Benefits-CO-District-04.pdf

 There are 32,000 district residents who were previously uninsured but now have quality,
affordable health coverage because of the Affordable Care Act.1 Overall, the number of uninsured district residents has declined by 32%.
 Approximately 16,700 individuals purchased quality, affordable coverage through the new health
insurance marketplace, 36,000 enrolled in Medicaid, and 6,000 young adults were able to retain
coverage through their parents’ plans. For the majority of the individuals enrolled in the health
insurance marketpace, financial assistance was available that substantially reduced the cost of
coverage - in many cases to less than $100 per month.
 305,000 individuals in the district – including 76,000 children and 119,000 women – now have
health insurance that covers preventive services without any co-pays, coinsurance, or deductible.
 4,700 seniors in the district received Medicare Part D prescription drug discounts worth $6.3
million.
 81,000 seniors in the district are now eligible for Medicare preventive services without paying any co-pays, coinsurance, or deductible.

1 Assumes 60% of Marketplace and Medicaid enrollees were previously uninsured based on Kaiser Family Foundation and Commonwealth Fund Survey data.

 265,000 individuals in the district are protected by ACA provisions that prevent insurance
companies from spending more than 20% of their premiums on profits and administrative
overhead. Because of these protections, over 30,000 individuals in the district received
approximately $6 million in insurance company rebates.
 Up to 47,000 children in the district with preexisting health conditions can no longer be denied coverage by health insurers.
 265,000 individuals in the district now have insurance that cannot place annual or lifetime limits on their coverage.


If Buck is going to continue to tweet such pictures, he should at least accompany them with theme music from horror movies.

Torture first, then jail.

Instead of Rachel Maddow, MSNBC is showing "Morning Joe at Night" right before the prison extravaganza.
