A Facebook friend wrote this letter -- read and heed then

tell your friends especially if they have Republican Senators to tell them NOT TO DO THIS TO THE NATION!!!

Forward this if you like!

Alan Milner, a Facebook friend wrote a very very good opinion to his Senator, Bill Nelson. Alan is 100% correct:

Look, let's stop talking this mealy mouthed bull&^%

What the Republicans are calling TrumpCare is nothing less than the institution of the wholesale version of the death panels that Republicans used to say would be the result of Obamacare.

Well, that was a lie, and so is everything else the Republicans say about their "health care reforms."

As a Democrat, as a board member of a local Democratic Club, I am ashamed of the inability of the Democratic party to come out and say what must be said.

The Republican "health plan" is nothing less than the institutionalized murder of tens of thousands of poor people, those who cannot afford the exorbitant cost of private health insurance.


Let's tell it like it is: Obamacare cost the US government approximately $660 billion dollars in 2016....almost exactly the amount of money required to underwrite the Republican tax cut proposals.

I really don't care about mealy-mouthed platitudes about the "unprecedented" manner in which the Republicans are attempting rewrite our health care system behind closed doors.

Let's call it what it is: murder.

Paul Ryan's proposal to replace Medicare with a voucher program is equally unconscionable, attacking senior citizens and relegating them to poverty and ill-health, unable to afford the level of care they were promised under the Medicare program.

Former Florida Congressman Alan Grayson had it right. The Republican Health Care program is very simple: Don't get sick, and if you do get sick, die quickly.

I congratulate you for standing up for seniors, for the poor, for the under-served.....but you have to do more.

Tell these morons that, without Medicare and Medicaid, the entire American health system will collapse because the patients will disappear, costs will increase, driving even more people out of the health care market.

And then remind them that if the poor do not get health care, the people who do not get that care will breed the germs that will trigger the great pandemic that will sweep across the planet. This has happened before in human history, and right now with huge population movement bringing new germs into new target areas, it will happen again.

Trade votes, browbeat any Republicans who still have a shred of personal dignity left in them. Chain yourself to the doors of the Senate....but do something that will make it inescapably clear that it there is going to be hell to pay in 2018 and 2020 if they persist in this insanity.
