Hundreds Of Protesters Gather On Capitol Hill Over GOP Health Care Bill
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/acti...c773336edd

Quote:With hours before a hearing was set to begin over the controversial health care legislation, first introduced by Sens. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) in late July, a line of activists waiting to sit in on the Senate hearing had grown so long it stretched into another building

Not much online about this yet, but I hear the meeting has been postponed until order has been restored - apparently all hell broke loose.

How can people watch this and still hold fast to the idea that affordable healthcare isn't a basic human right in 2017?? That people with such devastating disabilities don't deserve some decency, respect and support from the fortunate and healthy.

Like seriously. WTF is wrong with these assholes that claim to be so CHRISTIAN and PRO-LIFE. Fuck all of them!

Because the holy greatest of all men but jesus in this world founding fathers of America didn't make it a right... because blind authority love to think x is the text that is all you need to live by. Even though other leaders like fdr in the more modern world called for it and other countries took awareness to that being smart.

It's considerable if the ideas of public libraries or post offices didn't exist, the American everyday and conservative brass would fight against their place for being far reaching government projects. They'd say we'll there's no Right to education or information that those are not possible givable, even though that's changeable at any point.

Lindsey Graham trying to defend the current bill push said if others got their way we might wind up spending more on health care than military... and that's supposed to be a negative statement.

Partisan identity is stronger than all of that. They're party believes the most important thing is funneling as much money to the rich as possible. It's why every one of their "healthcare" bills has been about tax cuts to the rich first and foremost, as well as about "repealing Obamacare" (another big partisan goal).

Actually making good healthcare doesn't fit into the mix at all.

I am afraid RobbyPants that the democratic party has the same aims. The only difference is that they funnel the money to their "donors", it is the same thing since their donors are generally the wealthy. Meanwhile they screw some other of their donors like unions because some of the unions concerns would potentially harm the wealthy.

Washington (CNN)The Senate will not vote on the Graham-Cassidy bill to repeal Obamacare, Republican leaders announced Tuesday, dealing a devastating blow to President Donald Trump and GOP lawmakers who tried to make a last-ditch attempt to deliver on the party's years-long campaign promise.

The Geezers On Parade failed again.
