"If you get sick,old, have a family this bill will harm you"*Best kept secret: It harms everybody

* per Obama

The MSM and most Democratic spokespeople fail to mention the most basic fact about the Republican Death Bill: It robs everybody
of the right to humane health insurance and security.

Their bill ends ACA's Employer Mandate, which ACA enforced by fines for non compliance for those with over 50 employees.

It also explodes the requirement for insurance policies to cover basic needs (like prescription, hospitalization, tests, well..pretty much any medical necessity can be eliminated.)

The ACA prohibition of annual and life time caps also thrown onto the junk heap, so we're back to the days of bake sales to fight medical cost devastations.

And, of course, the Medicaid slash means that 2/3s of Americans who are or will ever get old & vulnerable will not have Medicare to cover the unaffordable costs for most for homecare or for nursing homes.

Finally the Ryan Republican House passed their bill specifically continuing Obamacare coverage for themselves(!) as they voted Death Care for the rest of Americans. Seriously doubt that this outrageous privilege isn't extended to Senators as well in McConnell's versions.

There are hundreds of millions of Americans who think they are somehow protected from the Republican Death Bill because they now have good coverage through their employer. This is probably the most sweeping and dangerous myth that Repugs are delighted is floating out there; it goes systematically unchallenged by either the MSM and even our best Dem voices don't utilize this most useful, fundamental Framing.
