We are often told of smoke filled rooms in Washington DC. Where the fat cats smoke cigars, drink whiskey, eat steaks, laugh at the poor people, and discuss how to rip away health coverage from thousands of Montanans.
Well, I think only Steve Daines brings up the Montana specific portion. Pretty sure Ted Cruz doesn’t care about the family in Sidney who now has access to care thanks to Medicaid expansion–but I am pretty sure Ted Cruz doesn’t care about anything other than himself.
After Daines hosted the Pride of Baltimore Matt Rosendale for what appeared to be a thorough policy discussion–definitely not a staged photo opportunity–in a hallway about the ins and outs of health care in this country, it appears that the GOP bill is coming together–or maybe not.
They don’t seem to know and sure as heck don’t seem to want to talk about it.
Thanks to the journalists at Vox, we can hear from 8 senators about just what exactly they are trying to do here.
Read it for yourself here. It’s worth the read.
The Senators assure the media that this bill will solve everything, even though they haven’t seen the bill.
Coincidentally, I have a luxury, high-rise condo with ocean views in Plentywood to sell Chuck Grassley.
This shouldn’t surprise any of us. The GOP has been talking in sound bites for the last 7 years and now they are coming to realize yelling “death spiral” is not a sound form of governing unless you represent Hades.
These Senators are messing with the health care of millions of Americans and the best response we can get from them is ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
I don’t know what the future holds for this bill, but right now scroll up to the top of this post to get a live look into the negotiations. I think the smoke coming from the back room where they are writing this bill is from the dumpster fire.
