Beastly Bill: TrumpCare 2.0 Dresses Up House Bill In An Attempt to Disguise It's impact On The Poor

Good Day World!

The secret is out.

The revised Senate health care bill is just as ugly as the House's legislation, which hurt the poor and helped the wealthy.

Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, made an attempt to dress up the Beast the House released, but it was a half-hearted one at best.

The new Beast is bringing even more draconian cuts to the table. It's ravenous appetite extends to Medicaid which would see a drastic drop in funding.

Some Republican senators are concerned they're not going to have enough time to really study what the Beast is bringing in this bill.

It's likely many nasty details will come to light as interest groups, health policy experts, Senate Democrats and their staff parse the legislative language.

According to Senate rules, the Senate can vote on this bill only after it is scored by the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office.

McConnell suggested that an analysis could be completed today, or Monday. The plan is to vote on the Beast next week.

Stay tuned.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
