Stevieslaw: Someone Else
Now that patient’s rights groups, health insurance companies and the American Medical Association have lined up against the Graham-Cassidy health bill, Republican leaders have been assuring their constituents that any negative fall-out from the bill will only affect “someone else.”
A spokesperson for Senator Graham told the nation, “There are winners and losers in any legislative effort. We guarantee that any loss of coverage or increase in premiums for coverage of pre-existing conditions will not affect you, your family or anyone you know or love. They will only affect someone else.”
President Trump echoed this remark by stating, “Although a few real losers might suffer a little, the passage of this bill will be a huge win for nearly all Americans.”
Move along America. There’s nothing to see here. It’s all good.
