Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, is expected to unveil a new draft of Trumpcare in a last-ditch effort to win the votes he needs. Reports say a vote could be next week, and the legislation could be on President Donald Trump's desk soon after.
Trumpcare is in trouble thanks to grassroots outrage, but it's not over yet. We can't forget that House Republicans twice called a vote and twice canceled it before quietly negotiating, as Sen. McConnell is doing now, and winning in the end. We can't let the same thing happen twice.
Sen. McConnell's new version of this bill will no doubt include concessions and offers of money to moderate Republicans for their states -- trying to literally buy their votes.
Trumpcare would cut Medicare and Medicaid as well as cutting millions off health insurance. All this for giving millionaires and billionaires a tax cut? Tell your senators to do the right thing and vote against this bill.
