Senate Republicans proved they could be just as heartless as their House counterparts, targeting the most vulnerable among us with their healthcare bill
To say this has been a tough week is the understatement of the century. A new study showed that guns are the third leading cause of death for children in the US; Ice agents in New York are targeting trafficking victims; and a black pregnant woman was shot and killed by police in front of her children. And then there’s the healthcare bill. Senate Republicans released their draft and, as expected, it is a disaster for the most vulnerable among us. When you have six-year-olds lobbying politicians so that their life-saving care doesn’t end, when people are being pulled out of their wheelchairs to be arrested for protesting – you know things are bad.
