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?

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen
From Screwed:
"The powers that be are running roughshod over the powers that OUGHT to be. Hartmann tells us what went wrong — and what you and I can do to help set American right again."
Jim Hightower, National Radio Commentator, Writer, Public Speaker, and author of the bestselling Thieves in High Places
