In The Des Moines Register, Reka Basu skewers the duplicity of Trumpcare. A snippet:
The really outlandish part of the Senate proposal is that the money saved from cutting federal spending on health care would go to cutting taxes to households making $875,000 or more by 2 percent, according to the analysis by the Urban Institute and the Brookings Institution’s Tax Policy Center. The lowest-income 20 percent would see a 1 percent cut in taxes and the middle income, less than half a percent.
If curtailing health-care access for many Americans to fatten the rich is what lawmakers want, they should say so. But that would cost them votes.
