'GO WITH OUR PLAN': It's "going to be terrific," says Donald Trump. And if you can't believe Trump .....
Dang. This health care thing is complicated.
Polls show overwhelming public distaste
for the Republican legislation to "repeal and replace" Obamacare. Corollary: They like the Obamacare they have a whole lot more than what Republicans have an offer.
But the hard, hard right of the Republicans in Congress and the Kochs are teaming up to make the legislation even worse.
No maternity coverage, for example. Because, hey, that's unfair to men. (Maybe they should drop prostate coverage under the same theory.)
The Kochs (and their handmaidens like Sen. Tom Cotton) won't be happy until government contributes nothing to health care. The deserving will pay for their health care. The dead beats will suffer — and I do mean suffer — the consequences of their lack of worthiness.
Maternity health care. Really. This is some of that "patient-centered" health care promised by U.S. Rep. French Hil
l of Little Rock and his predecessor, now Lt. Gov. Tim Griffin.
