SWAMPCARE 2.0: Treating The Corpse While The Sick Die

Hooray! The GOP repealed Obamacare! Sort of. Kind of. Well, not really. Actually not at all.
The House of Representatives barely passed the new-and-remixed version of the bull with udders known as the American Health Care Act (AHCA). Now Republicans own Obamacare and its progeny. This will play about as well as Donald Trump did in Washington D.C. come November 2018. But the die is cast.
AHCA, and Obamacare have very little to do with health care in America, which President Trump suddenly realized was really complicated after hitting his head on a toilet in the Oval Office one morning. It’s really a national shame that we have 15 medical doctors serving in the House of Representatives and 3 in the Senate, and nobody in government knows enough to stop treating a corpse while living sick patients are dying.
The President looks happy. Now he gets his name on 
Access to health insurance will not solve America’s health care problems. It never would, and it never could. The point of Obamacare was to do exactly what it did: destroy the insurance risk pool and market state by state until there was no choice but to go single-payer through the government. This is why Medicaid expansion was such a centerpiece of the program.
