A COUNTRY WITHOUT A CONSCIENCE

“trust me…”

Hollywood may’ve gotten a bad rap this past election year, but when it comes to negotiations, they’ve set a great example for “how its done.” After twisty-turny, last-minute negotiations, Hollywood is getting its happy ending!

Sadly, it’s not the same for Healthcare in America.  After yesterday’s vote, when many of the Congressmen didn’t even take the time to read the bill they rushed to vote on —

They Took The Healthcare Crisis off LIFE SUPPORT!

The CHARACTER of our COUNTRY has sunk to a new low as House Republicans (mostly white men) gloated in the White House Rose Garden after passing a bill that takes away Healthcare for Americans, but gives Tax Breaks to wealthy donors and big corporations.

Disturbing on so many levels, if you have something wrong with you, it’ll cost you a lot more per year to deal with it. For instance it’ll cost over 140K annually for patients with metastasized cancer (as if their problems aren’t already overwhelming enough.) And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

The A to Z list of Pre-Existing Conditions has just about every disease on it! “A”s include Aids, Alzheimers and Arthritis, whaaaaaa?!  Oh, I almost forgot — “Depression” is on the Pre-Existing List.

Seriously, as long as Trump and his cohorts think rape, domestic abuse and birth defects are “pre-existing conditions” there’s no hope for the two sides to ever meet in the middle. How soon can we vote the heartless out of Congress? 

BLATANT LIES CAUGHT ON TAPE

It’s beyond EMBARRASSING…

GOP Congressmen like John Faso of New York promise constituents with life-threatening illnesses that they won’t take away their healthcare, then go back on their word and vote “YES” for the team.

WILL POOR OR OLD SICK PEOPLE BECOME EXTINCT?

I don’t know how I’ll continue to Volunteer in the ER if this new bill is passed by the Senate. It’s already a super sad place.  But when they start putting bandaids on tumors before sending patients on their way, I’m afraid it will take deaths to bring our elected officials’ consciences back to life.

I hate sad endings…
