Zombie Trumpcare at a glance, from the CBO

The Congressional Budget Office's devastating score of Trumpcare is kind of a slog to actually read. Just ask Freedom Caucus leader Rep. Mark Meadows! So in order to help those Republicans who didn't bother to read the bill or the CBO report, here's some of the lowlights from the report of what they voted to inflict on the public. The report House Speaker Paul Ryan says he's "actually comforted" by.

  • The number of people losing insurance in the next year is 14 million, the same as in the original Trumpcare. It would force 23 million out of insurance in the next decade, 1 million fewer than the original Trumpcare. As Dylan Matthews points out it "costs $218 billion more than the original, covers 1 million more. That's $218,000 per new person insured."
  • By 2026, 51 million people will be uninsured, compared to 28 million under current law—Obamacare.
  • Among those uninsured, "the increase would be disproportionately larger among older people with lower income—particularly people between 50 and 64 years old with income of less than 200 percent of the federal poverty level." Like, 800 percent more expensive.
  • Relatedly, it would increase Medicare disproportionate-share payments to hospitals by $43 billion in the next decade, because of the costs of treating so many new uninsured patients.
  • It would destabilize the individual insurance market for one-sixth of the population in the states that get the waivers to avoid providing comprehensive coverage, which would mean that premiums for people buying comprehensive plans would be unaffordable.
  • It would cut $834 billion from Medicaid in the next ten years, and cut 14 million people out of Medicaid coverage.

But, hey! It would be a $663 billion tax cut over the next 10 years for the rich! That's what matters most of all to Republicans, and probably the part of this that Ryan finds particularly comforting. Well, that and fulfilling his frat-boy dream of destroying Medicaid.

Make the 23 House Republicans who voted against their constituents for this bill pay. Please give $1 to each of our funds targeting the most vulnerable House Republicans.

Trump’s GOP Condones Violence Against Reporters

“Of course not. It’s not appropriate behavior. Unless the reporter deserved it.”

— Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA), quoted by the AP, when asked if assaulting a reporter is appropriate behavior, following U.S. House candidate Greg Gianforte's (R-MT) assault on a reporter on the eve of a special election in Montana.

On MSNBC, Ex-GOP Staffer Details How The Purpose Of Voter ID Laws Is To "Take People's Constitutional Rights Away"

From the April 7 edition of MSNBC's All In with Chris Hayes:

TODD ALLBAUGH: I've been a Republican for a long time. It was at that moment, Chris, in that room in the senate Republican caucus when I heard people, a Party I had fought for for over 30 years of my life, actually giddy and happy and talking about how we can take people's Constitutional rights away, or at least impede them, in order to hang onto power.

[...]

Now, you have a group of people in the state legislature, particularly in the senate Republican caucus, who want to impede peoples' voting rights. That's the point where I said "I can't do it anymore." I can't be a Republican, I can't keep going to caucuses because this Party no longer represents me and what I believe in. 

[...]

Republicans used to fight for voting rights, and here they were taking them away. So, yes, the point is, this was a poignant point in my life. I remember it clearly and certainly the point in that room that day was how do we do this quickly because there was a lot of recalls going on in Wisconsin at that time. How do we do it quickly so that we can make sure we hang onto power in the future.
