The GOP broke off bipartisan talks with Dems to shore up ACA's insurance markets, and now they're trying - again - to unilaterally repeal ACA and take with it a huge chunk of Medicaid (which will, of course, completely destabilize our entire healthcare system, but that's where we are).

You can find more information by googling Graham-Cassidy, but here's one link.

Apparently, Lindsey Graham - one of the bill's sponsors - got on Breitbart radio (yes, now we're integrating Breitbart into GOP mainstream, fun times ahead) to urge listeners to call in support of the new bill, so it's VERY IMPORTANT that the Senate be flooded with opposition calls.

Here is one script and information resource.

I know it's a war of attrition and they want us to feel this way, but it just feels so hopeless. Just hang on til the midterms, I guess. Which will be....three days after my birthday! Ahahahaha. Oh boy.

I'm really sorry the Republicans are so fixated on taking healthcare away from people. It's just gross. It's so absurd that you can't have healthcare like any other country with money (or even many without money).

Yeah. It seems a very "cut of your nose to spite your face" approach, to destroy all your useful stuff, just so black people can't have anything either.

I am just fucking speechless at this point. WHY? I mean, I know why, but WHY??? It is the stupidest, vilest hill for them to die on, but they just won't quit.
