Last week, just after a Fox News poll found
that only 34% of American voters support Trumpcare, Donald Trump himself told
Tucker Carlson that he knew this bill would be harmful to his own supporters.
Today, after more reports that Trumpcare would be devastating to working class and middle class Americans all over the country – especially elderly and rural Americans – House Republicans attempted to paper-over this inconvenient and very serious news with slight changes to the bill that will not prevent those outcomes.
“With these insignificant changes, congressional Republicans just admitted that they know what the CBO has already told the public: Trumpcare would be a severe blow to America’s seniors. Desperate Republicans may think a “spin room” is the answer to their problems, but in reality, there’s no spinning terrible policy. The truth about Trumpcare is already out,” said American Bridge spokesperson Andrew Bates.
