FTFY: A group of Republicans just launched a PR Stunt to get them re-elected
Another bullshit alternative. Block grants to states so red state governors can use them as they see fit (i.e. policing bathrooms to make sure people pee only in the bathroom the govt approves). Blocking funds from going to planned parenthood. Thanks but no thanks.
FTFY: A group of Republicans just launched a tempting opportunity to ruin healthcare coverage for millions of Americans.
I laughed when 'Blanche' Graham sheepishly looked down as he said that his plan would 'prevent your health decisions being made by some bureaucrat in Washington'.
He was probably thinking:
Are they going to realize that I'm some bureaucrat in Washington trying to make health decisions for them? If I don't look at the camera maybe they can't see right through me?
That's really all it amounts to, since more people want to keep the ACA than to ditch it. Even fewer want it repealed with no plan replaced- according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, it's like 20%.
Conclusion, they are pandering to the Kid Rock demo- angry white people who just wanna see the black man's accomplishments killed, because they aren't allowed to lynch black people, by some weird quirk of the law.
Not very tempting. It would give each state a block grant for less money than they are getting now through Obamacare. Then each state would be responsible for the healthcare in their state. That's a sure way for the GOP to lose massive numbers of state-level representatives.
That's partly why I said that it was a "tempting opportunity." I meant that it was tempting for them.
Look at Kansas! The voters gave us a super-majority and we governed the hell out of 'em!
"Ok guys, if next time you give us a super duper majority we'll get it done. Swearsies!"
