Magic Mitch's Bag of Health Care Tricks
Mitch McConnell can’t afford to lose Republican votes if he wants to push through the terrible Senate Republican “Better Care Act,” a massive tax cut for the rich masquerading as a health care plan. It’s Mitch McConnell’s Magic Health Elixir guaranteed to provide better care for less.
Several Republican senators know that the bill is bad for their state, so McConnell has tossed in some goodies to give them a better shot at spinning the bill and hiding its massive health care cuts from their constituents.
Here are some of the things on the McConnell goodie list—and don’t be fooled. These are just bones. None of these are any substitute for giving state residents real, dependable, affordable access to care. That’s what the Trump administration promised. That’s not what the Senate is delivering.
