Graham-Cassidy the Worst Flavor of Republicare

Resistbot, September 15, 2017:

The Graham-Cassidy version of Republicare is even more punishing than previous plans put forward by the GOP Congressional majority. The funding plan would result in millions losing coverage. And the complex funding formula for its system of block grants would favor states with lower populations. There is no good justification for skewing funding that way, other than to try to buy off Senators from smaller states which arel already disproportionately represented in the Senate. The people deserve a medical care bill that focuses on delivering health care to people rather than trying to buy enough votes to pass the Senate. Please join in the bipartisan effort led by Senators Alexander and Murray to fix the system rather than undermining it for perceived partisan advantage.
