The New Horror Awaiting Us If the GOP Is Successful

Thom plus logo Trump and the Republican Party have been screaming about the horrors of Obamacare ever since it was passed in the early years of the Obama presidency. Today, their lawsuit to completely destroy Obamacare is being heard in a federal appeals court, and may well go from there to the Supreme Court. If the Republicans succeed, millions of people in America will lose their health insurance, and all the rest of us who use insurance from for-profit companies will once again face the loss of all our insurance coverage if we get seriously ill, or the absolute unavailability of insurance coverage if we have a pre-existing condition. Republicans think this is a good idea.

This is political dynamite, and the Democrats should be using it aggressively - and we all need to be telling our friends, family and neighbors about the horrors that will await us if the GOP is successful.

It feels as though America has had 3 years of a continuous barroom brawl. Enough. Eight would leave the place a wreck.

As usual, you have it backwards. The political dynamite is the party of death's socialist plan to completely do away with private health insurance. Most people who have employer provided plans are satisfied and want to keep them. What does Bernie plan to do about them?
