Just How Seriously Should We Treat The Threat From Graham-Cassidy?

Just how seriously should people be treating the threat from Graham-Cassidy?

Don't believe the Republican lies.

The Graham-Cassidy bill that they're trying to force the Congress without so much as a hearing is the cruelest attempt at Obamacare repeal yet.

It's also complete repudiation of our nation's founding values.

Trumpcare 3.0 - aka the Graham-Cassidy bill - is remarkably cruel - even by Republican standards.

For starters, it phases out Obamacare's Medicaid expansion AND Medicaid as a whole -- that's right -- the entire program!

Graham-Cassidy also slashes federal healthcare funding by billions - and then turns it into block grants that states can do whatever they want with -- and I mean literally do whatever they want with.

They don't have to use that to help people pay for healthcare.

And as if that wasn't bad enough, Graham-Cassidy also allows insurers to discriminate against people with pre-existing conditions.

If it gets signed into law and you're a 40-year-old with a pre-existing condition - like, say, asthma - insurers could slap you with a $4,000 premium surcharge.

If you've got heart disease - that surcharge could rise as high as $18,000.

And if you've got cancer - insurers could make you pay as much as $140,000 extra.

Whatever happened to the general welfare?
