Al Franken wrote, “Republicans are trying to pass a cruel and irresponsible piece of legislation that would have devastating consequences. I’m trying to stop that bill, because it would dismantle Medicaid, rip coverage away from millions of Americans, and allow insurers to once again discriminate against people with preexisting conditions.” People like my grandchildren who are diabetic, and other family members with severe arthritis.
If we are ever to be a nation that again works for the betterment of the people, the GOP has to think differently about this legislation. I’m covered by A, B and F, so at 93 I haven’t much to worry about, but it costs $285 a month.
