Happy Hour News BriefsOK, in lieu of having some snotty bit of trolling Y’all Qaeda, I thought maybe I would put down the spitball straw and say just a few words about the CBO score.
The Congressional Budget Office says that 24 million people would lose their coverage by 2026.
And of course the White House says that the CBO is lying. And not to put too fine a spin on it, but the rubes who voted for the Russian Usurper would be the ones most hard hit.

Of course, the CBO also says that this plan will save billions of dollars. (by not insuring people, is the small print.)
This thing, Trumpcare, Ryancare, Wealthcare, whatever you want to call it would be a disaster if passed. The cruelty of this thing is shocking in the extreme; it’s not just that so many people would be without healthcare, they ended prevention programs, and cutting the CDC budget so the chances of an pandemic increase. The darker angel sitting on my shoulder says that economic Darwinism is the plan.
You could design a deliberate, better plan to kill-off undesirable people, but it would have to be more up-front that that was the actual goal, you know, and build some ovens. It’s been done before.
