Bend Over

The new Republican healthcare bill is odious on its face if you don't happen to be part of the one or two percent of people who wallow in wealth and get paid for the privilege. Within its bowels there is a $400 million dollar tax break for health insurance executives - you may remember Trump making a big show of meeting with these people some days ago at the White House.
"The proposed tax break, buried in cryptic language in the Republican plan, would allow health insurers to more fully deduct the value of their executives' compensation on their taxes. That compensation can be as high as tens of millions of dollars, in the case of CEOs of insurers."
The Republican Party has cheated the working man and woman for decades. They have taken our money, devalued our labor and blamed us when their excesses have sent the economy into free fall. This, however, this is criminal. Millions will lose their health insurance, while the parasites who prey on the health of the American people get richer. Resist!!!
