‘Piece Of Sh*t’: GOP Senator Immediately Regrets Trolling Bernie Sanders Over Trumpcare

The Republican ‘healthcare’ plan is a travesty and the numbers don’t lie. Sen. Orrin Hatch does, though. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) tweeted on Thursday, “Let us be clear and this is not trying to be overly dramatic: Thousands of people will die if the Republican health care bill becomes law.” Sanders is correct but he’s being stingy with his numbers. Actually, tens of thousands of our country’s neediest will die if Trumpcare becomes law and all because Republicans want to gift the wealthy with a tax cut.

Medicaid saves lives and that’s a fact that Hatch refuses to acknowledge. The Utah Senator responded to Sanders’ accurate tweet, saying, “The brief time when we were *not* accusing those we disagree with of murder was nice while it lasted.”

When was that brief time, Orrin? Was it when Sarah Palin called Obamacare the ‘death panels’ then when the Affordable Care Act became law, lives were saved. Trumpcare assures death to thousands of vulnerable Americans.

Twitter users reacted swiftly to Hatch’s tweet.

Obamacare is not perfect but Republicans insisted on a watered-down version before it passed and now we’re left with a healthcare system that needs to be fixed but not eradicated. Some conservatives think that the GOP health care plan isn’t cruel enough. We disagree with conservatives. This proposal to repeal Obamacare is cruel enough already. If it becomes law, it will destroy families, financially and emotionally. Sanders never mentioned the word ‘murder’ in his tweet so we suspect that Hatch has a guilty conscience.

As former Vice-President Joe Biden put it, “Slashing Medicaid hurts kids, the elderly, people with disabilities and those struggling with addiction. All for tax breaks for the wealthy.”

Hatch already knows this. The opioid crisis is sweeping across the U.S. and Republicans want to target a program which would help some drug addicts eventually become useful citizens in this country. By the way, the Senator’s state ranks 4th in overdose deaths.
