Ryan to blame for healthcare shortfalls

Ryan to blame for healthcare shortfalls

If this situation wasn’t so sad, I might just die laughing.

Leave it to the Republicans to present a healthcare plan that hurts more Americans while giving another tax break to the rich. Let’s not be calling it “Trumpcare.” No, I’m not defending Donald “who knew health care was so complicated” Trump. He may sign it, but he didn’t create it, and he doesn’t have a clue anyway.

Put the blame for this disaster where it belongs, squarely on Paul Ryan’s shoulders. The Ryancare ripoff. Wealthcare. The only way that anyone could possibly explain to me how this plan is good for the American people would be using this administration’s newly minted “alternative facts.”

Real facts: Ryan and company created this in secret, don’t know what it will cost, and are now trying to push it through at breakneck speed. Their plan hurts the very people that need it the most, the poor and seniors. Paul Ryan doesn’t even understand how health insurance works and it has nothing to do with another tax break for the rich.

Well, Paul, for you, health insurance is one of the things that we taxpayers provide for you and your family. You’re welcome. As one of those taxpayers, I really don’t want to pay for your insurance anymore, thanks. With the rich contributors and insurance lobbyists, certainly you can afford it better than I can.

Message to Paul and Congress: Give everyone in this country the same health insurance that you have, pay for your own, or just get out. We need people that know what their doing to figure out how to provide good, affordable health care to all Americans. We don’t need corrupt, hypocritical politicians ripping off the American public to benefit their rich contributors in the name of health care reform. Remember this and vote’em out.

If things keep going this way, I won’t need the insurance anyway. If this situation wasn’t so sad, I might just die laughing.
