The American Health Cut Act

The bills drafted by Republicans in the House of Representatives and Senate do nothing to improve the healthcare, lives, or wellbeing of any American who needs such help. In fact, they are not health care acts whatsoever. They are tax cuts for people who need them least that take health care away from people who need it most.

As such, these bills also act as trojan horses, within which is the key to Republican governance and the men who craft it. Drafted in secret, punitive to the most vulnerable. Cruel. Brutish. Deadly. Think of it this way: Barack Obama chose as his primary legacy a health care act that offered coverage for people who would never vote for him. Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, and Donald Trump are standing behind a bill that would revoke coverage from people who put their trust in them. That is their measure as men.
