ㅤThis piece of trickery may backfire, and it is an example of how an ignorant, arrogant Senate Republican is a danger to all conservatives. You can see the truth in this chart.

They’re talking about repealing or not repealing the 3.8% tax Obama levied on investment income to keep Medicare sustainable for a few more years (8 years vs 11 years). Big deal.

ㅤ”The latest bill includes another $70 billion to help states keep health insurance affordable for older, sicker customers. But it’s not clear how those backstops would work, and the federal funding eventually would end.”
