Sometimes It Takes a Kennedy

You tell 'em, Joe. Listen and watch here
"Last night, Speaker Ryan called the GOP repeal bill 'an act of mercy.' With due respect to the Speaker, he and I must have read different scripture. The one I read taught that we are judged not by how we treat the powerful but how we care for the least among us. There is no mercy in a system that makes health care a luxury. This bill is no act of mercy. It is an act of malice."

So grateful to at last see someone brave enough to call out the false Christianity of the Republican Right Wing.  Does it take being a Kennedy to have that kind of courage?

And this piece from Daily Kos is so full of useful information it's worth forwarding to everyone you know.

I particularly like the pie chart that debunks all the selfish arguments regarding who gets subsidies and who doesn't. Guess who doesn't get any kind of government subsidy for their health insurance coverage? Here's a clue: it's not the millions of folks who believe they don't. Zero in and really study this chart. It's quite revealing, and it rather clearly reveals who and how many will suffer if Republicare has its way.
