With the 2018 Midterms looming large, those citizens troubled by the potential elimination of their healthcare and the lives of those suffering from ill health and threatening life conditions have the opportunity to defend their ground with their vote. If you need to be reminded where the GOP leadership stands, a review of this updated piece from June of 2017 should help - BTJ, 16 Oct 2018
Ever since Mitch "Eichmann" McConnell required the GOP to channel their inner Khymer Rouge last month (May 2017 - BTJ), the Republican Senate's plans have been left up to the imagination.
With an effort to reduce American Life expectancy by decades, Senator McConnell has taken Trump's copy of Mein Kampf, added a final solution or two and mixed in the support of the subhuman Deplorables. Extracting the DNA of a snapping turtle to genetically alter his appearance, Mitch may soon be donning a Nazi WWII helmet to complete the new look for the leading haters of Americans - the United States Senate's Republicans.
Reducing the American population by 20 million or so will impact the healthcare system certainly, bankrupting patients and former caregivers alike. The economic travesty of eliminating Medicare, the Veterans Administration hospitals, Social Security and all other forms of federal subsidies to the Healthcare system - except for those owned by say, Tim Price, who has repeatedly proven in the past that he is a very good friend to the companies he holds shares of - is nearly beyond stupefying. Keep in mind that the Kentucky Senator has already been experimenting on his constituents in his home state for over a decade.
One of the conclusions that can be drawn is that the systemic elimination of the old, the infirm and the injured is a necessity for GOP success. Though the Party of Ignorance fails to recognize that their razor thin majority is the most likely to succumb first.
So perhaps that is a good thing.
In conjunction with eliminating the immigration of tens of thousands of future Healthcare workers, the GOP should be able to passively execute millions of their followers over the next four years.
No one ever accused the GOP Conservative element of being good long term planners. Proudly failing at predicting the future for decades, they continue to successfully disappoint the nation.
Now for those of you interested in the 2018 elections, there are more than a few organizations who are also key players beyond the party affiliation. Perhaps familiesusa.org is worth a look, and this question in particular:
