Current View of GOP Health Care Plan

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.

  1. Love the “Plentywood” reference. Is it referring to what happened there in the early 20th century?

  2. ‘Bible Thumper’ Gianforte should heed the words of the Bible, Old and New Testaments, WARNING the likes of him – powerful oligarchs and suck ilk – in Isaiah 10:1-2, Luke 20:45-47, about not oppressing the poor, the weak, the downtrodden, and walking about in ‘fine robes’ and spouting hypocrisy of every sort, and the LORD will have very FIERCE judgement against the likes of Gianforte and the Trump Swamp-rats, more like tRump is akin to King Ahab, the godless, idol worshippers of the Old Testament and the curse on the people and God’s judgement…

  3. With Montanans like the following, it’s apparently more important to defend Vladimir Putin and Russian Oligarchs than to defend Montanans right to access affordable healthcare and the enclosure of, and selling off of, Montana’s Public Land. Something tells me the person who made the linked comment is not a True Montanan. But still, the person gives Montana & Montanans a bad name.

  4. I really think we will engage the average American better if we start calling them Robber Barons rather than oligarchs-it sounds so…college. One thing Montanans of all walks know about is Clark and the Robber Barons and why we used to have the best laws in the nation regarding money in politics. Democrats need a new message and I think this is it-#RepealReaganomics and #ReplaceRepublicanRobberBarons ! We need to take our Government back from this bunch of self-involved UnAmerican assholes.

  5. great post! thank you for this helpful info! )
