'Repeal and Go Fuck Yourself' Is in Full Effect

- This is the actual headline. Brilliant. The proposed replacement is an abomination however: 

Lindsey Graham has really good healthcare that he definitely won't lose, even if the moral catastrophe he's calling a "reform" bill passes the Senate. Graham has cosponsored an Obamacare Repeal and Replace Plan with the impressively mendacious Bill Cassidy and two other Republican heartthrobs. It is somehow worse than the previous plans.
The bill would usher a number of shocking cruelties into law, not least the possibility that as many as 32 million Americans could lose health coverage. That's 10 percent of the population. We don't know for sure because Republicans are trying to force the bill through the Senate before its effects can be assessed by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. The bill is full of fun surprises, like the loophole it creates allowing insurers to deny people coverage for a series of basic medical treatments, including:
  • Pregnancy and maternity care
  • Prescription drugs
  • Mental health services
  • Reproductive health services, including birth control
  • Substance abuse treatment


Woman jogger dubbed ‘The Mad Pooper’ wanted by police - The weird part is this is obviously premeditated. She brings toilet paper with her and public restrooms are available nearby.
