Trumpcare cuts deficit by $300 Billion

There's the line the Conservative Republicans like to throw around. By the way, it's true, so let's see where it comes from.

The expansion of Medicaid in Obamacare increases the number of middle class families who could afford health care. The biggest reason that fewer people are insured on Obamacare than originally predicted is that 19 states controlled by Republicans refused the Medicaid expansion in an attempt to make the plan fail. Trumpcare cuts 800 Billion Medicaid dollars over 10 years. Those dollars are meant for seniors, the poor and the middle class. The greater number of beneficiaries of these dollars are the Trump voting demographics in rural counties and red states.

But why, then aren't the tax payers saving $800 billion on the deficit? It's because $500 Billion of those cuts are going to the very wealthiest Americans

So, finally, we get to the Repuke talking point, $300 Billion in deficit reduction over 10 years

So, the fucking assholes, fleecing all of us, including the stupid pieces of shit that voted for this asshole, lose $800 billon in subsidies for health care over 10 years, $500 Billion of it goes to the mother fuckers who don't need it, and Trump and the Repukes get to tout "Fiscal Responsibility" with the remaining $300 Billion.

They are not dumb. They think we are.

3. And there are two bills, Ryan's and "Greatest Healthcare Plan 2017 or hr1275,

the one scored was Ryan, whatever HR number that is.

Yet most talk about HR1275 it seems, so I am confused and worried about a bait and switch.

So HR1275 has NOT been scored?
