So……..you take away poor people’s health care and then cut the federal budget that would help poor people get birth control, breast and cancer screenings and more.
But there is no Republican War On The Poor.
‘Planned Parenthood estimated that roughly 40 percent of its funding would be at risk should defunding legislation become law’.
‘The group reported receiving $553 million in government funding in 2014, about half of its total revenue’.
‘Republicans plan to strip Planned Parenthood of hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding as part of their rapid push to repeal President Obama’s health-care reforms, House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said Thursday’.
‘Ryan said a defunding measure would appear in a special fast-track bill that is expected to pass Congress as soon as next month: “Planned Parenthood legislation would be in our reconciliation bill,” he said at a news conference, in response to a question about plans to defund the organization’.
Get ready to hear that a LOT!
And to pay for the coming YUGE! deficit and debt, Republicans will take health care away from 20+million poor Americans, cut Medicare benefits, increase Medicare enrollment age, cut Medicaid funding, cut welfare funding, cut unemployment funding and cut food stamps funding because – well the poor are the reason we have such large deficits and debt……
‘Some of the most conservative members of Congress say they are ready to vote for a budget that would — at least on paper — balloon the deficit to more than $1 trillion by the end of the decade, all for the sake of eventually repealing the Affordable Care Act’.
‘In a dramatic reversal, many members of the hard-line House Freedom Caucus said Thursday they are prepared later this month to support a budget measure that would explode the deficit and increase the public debt to more than $29.1 trillion by 2026, figures contained in the budget resolution itself’.
Good ole Kellyanne Conway shoved her foot into her nouth……

Remember when Donald The President-elect Clown Trump said he had a plan to defeat ISIS and then later said he would call all the generals into the Oval Office in the first month and direct them to come up with a plan to defeat ISIS?
Donald Trump Doctrine – “Just Make Stuff Up”.
After telling all his low information voters that her had a plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, now he wants the Repubs and Dems to get together and come up with a plan…….
Donald J. Trump ? @realDonaldTrump
“…time for Republicans & Democrats to get together and come up with a healthcare plan that really works – much less expensive & FAR BETTER”!

Donald Trump: Replace Obamacare with Universal Health Care
Donald Trump shifts position on Obamacare in 60 Minutes interview
“Just Make Stuff Up”………….
While the rest of the industrialized world has socialized medicine, our attempt to get there was met with Republican fear mongering :
“Obamacare is a malignant tumor that feeds and metastasizes on American liberty,” Rep. Steve King (R-IA) once said of the law’.
“Obamacare is doing tremendous damage across America, and in Utah in particular,” Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) said a year ago.
‘Then-Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN) gravely pronounced: “This ruling erodes the freedom of every American, opening the door for the federal government to legislate, regulate, and mandate nearly every aspect of our daily lives under the guise of its taxing power.”
“If we don’t repeal and replace Obamacare, we will destroy health care in America,” Donald Trump warned a week before the election’.
“It’s a relatively small number of people who really are involved here,” Hatch told reporters earlier this month when he was being pressed for specifics about the GOP plan to repeal and maybe eventually replace Obamacare’.
Oh and the next budget will cut all federal funding to Planned Parenthood AND legislation on Trump’s desk to repeal Roe v Wade.
The excitement will be in how long they will ‘grandfater’ it for.
5 years? 15? 25?
‘Paul Ryan just announced that as part of repealing Obamacare he plans to phase out Medicare and replace it with private insurance for retirees’.
