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 Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
