McCaskill- Decision on health care bill was victory for common sense and morality

(From Sen. Claire McCaskill)

This is the good news we needed: Common sense and morality won last week when the House abandoned President Trump’s absolute disaster of a healthcare bill. His plan would’ve hiked costs for working families and older Americans and caused millions to lose health insurance – all so Republicans could cut taxes for the richest Americans.

We can breathe a sigh of relief today, but this is not over. In fact, The Washington Post put it best: "[President] Trump's next move may be even more disastrous." President Trump and Republicans will keep trying to force this plan through, no matter how many people it hurts, and we need to be ready.

I’m going to fight back against any bill that would hike costs for older Americans just to fund a tax giveaway to the wealthy, but I need to hear from you. Will you take a quick survey to share your thoughts on healthcare now, before the next debate on this?

It's a victory for you Senator McCaskill; but not the millions of little people with $10+ thousands annual deductibles, and annual premium increases of 115% .
You should very proud of your heartless behavior

56% of America didn't want to see the Republican's poor excuse for a health care package that would give the top a big tax break and cause 24 million to lose health care. You want to whine about "heartless"? Talk about your president's budget director saying they will cut funding for Meals on Wheels because it isn't showing any results.....now tell me in your lie that this isn't heartless. Sorry chief, you lose again.
