    More like 23M uninsured to pay for an 800bn tax cut for the very rich. The 'savings' come from cutting Medicare by a greater amount...

    So they pass something completely different and something completely different from the 2 bills emerges from conference.

    Here's a beautiful editorial from the NY Times that explains what truly happened with Obamacare. Here's the start of the article.

    Obamacare is not “collapsing under its own weight,” as Republicans are so fond of saying. It was sabotaged from the day it was enacted. And now the Republican Party should be held accountable not only for any potential replacement of the law, but also for having tried to starve it to death.
    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/25/o...smtyp=cur&_r=0

    So, when the voters (hopefully) get what they truly asked for (repeal) and start dying as a result we all know who to blame.

    Well, yes, but we've all known this since the start. The readership of the NYT aint the problem. And Jack and Jill F-ckwit of Wichita have had whatever meager brains they started with switched off by Fox & Fiends.

    This guy is some sort of lobbyist, so take it for what it's worth.

    Why would a lobbyist blab this openly?

    I assumed he's a lobbyist - those are his titles. Really more of a think-tank executive, but same difference, IMO.

    Ah, he's from CFAP. That explains it. If he was a lobbyist from somewhere like United, then I'd be confused. But a liberal think tank, that makes sense.

    Somewhere John Boehner relaxes, sinks back into his La-Z-Boy and sixth G&T. What begins as a low chuckle slowly ascends into maniacal laughter. Later, the wife will find him sleeping peacefully, empty glass gently placed on the well-worn stack of Thai fetish magazines to his side.
