Graham-Cassidy Heartless and Soulless

Resistbot message, September 25

The current changes to Graham Cassidy only make a horrific bill worse. The Republicans aren't even trying to pretend that this is about anything other than making their big donors happy. All the protections and features the GOP promised us have been stripped out, leaving us with a heartless, soulless alternative. And, in Florida, our Republican Senator does his best to insult and hide from his constituents. His excuse? That people might be angry with him? Yes, people are angry that he has failed to live up to his promises to support an inclusive and transparent process. He lied when he promised to support affordable insurance for people with preexisting conditions. I hope our junior Senator re-thinks his position and proves me wrong.
