161,000 Reasons

This morning, a few details of the Senate Health Care Bill were finally released to the public. Until today, this legislation has been kept a secret. The bill was never seen in ANY committee, has not been scored by the congressional budget office and the Republicans have not allowed a single amendment to the bill. This is wrong and Senator Cochran and Senator Wicker should know better.

These tactics have never been used in the 226 years of Senate history, this bill breaks a promise President Trump made during the campaign. We know that this bill will be a massive tax cut for the rich, we know that it will punish the elderly and the disabled, and we know it will increase premiums and lower essential health services for everyone who is insured. Maybe that's why it was such a big secret?
