So many passionately expressed their outrage back in September when the repeal of Obamacare was very realâ€¦and failedâ€¦thanks to those passionate voices.
Hereâ€™s the rub, the Republican Tax Billâ€Šâ€”â€Šnow all but assured passage by the Senateâ€Šâ€”â€Šincludes a powerful provision that removes the Individual Mandate to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), effectively starving Obamacareâ€Šâ€”â€Šand will have a very similar effect on the lives of Americans as a straight repealâ€Šâ€”â€Šincreases in premiums for everyone and reduce coverage to affordable healthcare for millions who need it most.
I understand that taxes are messy and thereâ€™s so much wrong with this bill (including screwing over Polar Bears)â€Šâ€”â€Šbut Iâ€™m surprised by how many folks are sidelining this time around.
Is it fatigue..you knowâ€¦it just doesnâ€™t matter? You changed your mind about the need for affordable healthcare? You like the tax bill? Magical Thinking? Waiting for the overtime victory thatâ€™s snatched out of the jaws of certain defeat? Youâ€™re tired seeing these silly political posts and want more cat photos? Done.
