A Republican Senate Health Care Bill So Bad, It’s Called BCRAP
By Doug Porter
You can’t make this stuff up folks. The Senate version of repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act is being called the “Better Care Reconciliation Act” Plan (BCRAP).
Passage of the legislation means more than 20 million (final number TBD next week) will lose healthcare coverage, premiums will skyrocket, especially for older Americans, as the lack of a mandate will remove incentives for healthy people to enroll.
A massive response is what’s needed. Republican legislators must be persuaded that the political cost of supporting BCRAP isn’t worth the benefits party leaders are promising.
