The Republicans Aren’t Even Pretending This Is About Healthcare Anymore

What we are hearing now from a number of people is the open admission that the goal of the Republican Party, a death-cult based on human suffering, is to strip healthcare from those people who do not vote for them, and from people the conservative mind has adjudged are unworthy of its benefits.

  1. They are literally willing to let people die so they can give a tax cut to rich people.

  2. Years ago, the Repugs would dress up their ideas as ‘Freedom’, ‘Efficiency’, ‘Equality’ etc. Now they’re not even bothering to hide it anymore.
    ‘We want to stick it to poor people, minorities and any group that didn’t vote for us, and yes, we’re happy to accept sloppy targeting that also gets those poor rubes who DID vote for us.’
    An improvement of sorts, I suppose but, and here’s where it gets scary, the Repugs have a guaranteed 35% base of support and the chance of up to 20% more.
    An educated, informed, active electorate… is one of those things the USA really should get around to at some point.

  3. In general some republicans can’t extend an open hand. I do think some are just going through the motions cause they can’t totally deny trump. Yet they do try. Who can really defeat him? That is the real question.
