    Default Republicans’ Obamacare repeal would be one of the biggest cuts to the social safety n

    And the end result? More uninsured, more illness, more death and more bankruptcy from medical bills. Great article. Even discusses the demise of unions caused by republicans party.

    Throughout the modern history of Congress, lawmakers have inexorably expanded progressive social policies, and while conservatives have successfully forestalled expansions to the social safety net, they've had very little success in reversing them.

    Right now, however, Republicans have a chance to buck that trend, as they prepare legislation aimed at repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. The Senate bill released on Thursday, coupled with the House bill passed earlier this year, would be exactly the kind of cuts to the welfare state that conservatives have consistently failed to achieve.

    The repeal measure, which follows weeks of unusual secrecy in its drafting, would bring down taxes, eliminate hundreds of billions of dollars in outlays on the social safety net and curtail the federal government's involvement in a crucial sector of the economy.

    ''I want to get something done''!!...So far Trump has got nothing done,just deregulations for the worst polluters,deregulations for banks,an upsurge of war crimes and deaths,more lies and more back room deals. The Trump era so far is a fat nothing for the planet,its citizens and Americans. Wait till his base cannot afford to buy medicines,get treatments and physicals for illness...Feeling themselves ''IMMUNE''...They will applaud any and all attacks on their ''LESSERS'' and the ''USELESS EATERS''.

    This is the Modern GOP...''COUNTING'' on Uneducated Idealists like Strappy to put them into a power position for one Equity Grab or Another...And those Ignorant Ideologues always 'COME THRU'...Don't they Strappy?...and now the 'TRUTH'.
