Well, except for the one percent getting a huge tax cut and rebate. Think of it as redistributing the wealth, upward.

Emanuel Cleaver II
Today the Senate released it’s devastating #TrumpCare bill. Written by 12 men in a back room, one week before the vote, with no hearing or public input. But I don’t want to talk about the lack of transparency or undemocratic process this bill has gone through in the Senate, I want to talk about the harmful impact it will have on America’s most vulnerable citizens. This bill, as written, will hurt seniors, women, veterans, working families, rural communities, and people with pre-existing conditions. It defunds Planned Parenthood, steals from Medicare, and guts Medicaid. It does away with essential health benefits, taking us back to the days where being a woman was considered a pre-existing condition. The only people it won’t hurt are healthy Americans and wealthy Americans. That’s because this is not a health bill at all. It is a tax bill meant to slash taxes for the wealthiest in our nation, all at the expense of our most disabled and disadvantaged. Please share if you agree that this bill should not pass the Senate. Please know that I will continue to fight for healthcare for ALL Americans and together we can stop this monstrous bill from becoming law.
