Mimi Walters Votes to Kill Poor People

More precisely:

“Today, the House of Representatives delivered on a promise that Republicans made to the American people seven years ago: to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act … I am honored to join my colleagues in the House to pass this landmark legislation for the American people.”

I’ll be okay — most of my voters have Medicare!

To be fair, I don’t know that HR 1628 will actually cause more deaths, but only because the CBO score hasn’t been released yet.  When the CBO scored a very similar bill in March the result was 14 million fewer Americans insured immediately, rising to 24 million in the mid 2020s.

Given how easy it was to write that headline, one has ask:

what the hell was Mimi thinking when she voted for this stink bomb?

She has plenty company: even single member of the California Republican house delegation votes “yea” today.


the attack headlines generated by this stink bomb are just pouring through the intertubes:

In Trump’s America, Rape Is a Preexisting Condition

The new Republican health care bill classes rape, PTSD, and domestic abuse as excludable pre-existing conditions

and one that should particularly concern Mimi:

Republicans Are Waging A ‘Coordinated Attack’ On Women’s Health Care
