Paul Krugman Sums Up Senate Health Care Bill in One Devastating Chart
"You can discount Trump and the Republican Party's promise of affordable health care that covers more people for less money. You can discount their promises to look after seniors and ensure the vulnerable get the care they need -- and you can particularly ignore Trump's promise to cover all Americans with his tremendous health care bill. This is, and always was complete bullsh*t. The Republican health care bill is about one thing, and one thing only: transferring more money to the rich.  It isn't clear whether Trump and the Republicans intend to hurt women, the poor, the disabled, the old, and the vulnerable. What is clear though, is that they don't care if they do. Every reputable analysis shows Trumpcare and the latest Senate bill to be a tragic disaster in the making. As long as the Republicans fulfill their obligations to the rich people who paid for them to get elected, they are willing to spend every ounce of political capital they have to get the harmful legislation through."
