Healthcare vote will come down to the wire
The next six days will be critical in how our nation decides to provide protections for their people. Are corporations more valuable than the collective millions of individuals in their grand scheme of things?
The irony of all this is that if the repeal bill passes, the vast majority of GOP voters who supported Trump will immediately or soon after be negatively affected by this law. The very people who supported this misguided bill will lose benefits or be charged so much to cover pre-existing conditions that they'll effective be priced out of insurance coverage.
I've been to Wal-Marts in red states. These people are not in the best physical shape. They are going to need coverage sooner or later for major conditions. And my fear is that they'll only then realize that voting for a party that places billionaire corporation's concerns over them might be a bad idea.
I'm not going to breathe until the noble month of October begins.
