Stevieslaw: Republicans are back to NAFT
When we first reported in January that the Republicans were planning to repeal Obamacare and replace it with NAFT (Not a Fucking Thing), most of our readers were appalled. No one could be that cruel was the general sentiment. But, as pointed out by Paul Krugman of the New York Times, they can.
Not a Fucking Thing accomplishes the two major goals of all the Republican “repeal” bills. First, it kills the Obamacare taxes and returns the money to the most deserving—the super-rich. And second, it takes health care away from tens of millions of Americans that the Republicans consider moral defectives—you know like the single mom working three jobs (without benefits) to feed her kids.
So, we are once again predicting that the Republicans will repeal Obamacare and replace it with NAFT.
Is it too much to hope that we might all get off our asses and vote in 2018?
