Republican Health Care Bill - Bleah!

Paul Ryan adamantly claims that the Republican health care bill is historic. No it isn't, not in any substantive way. The ACA WAS historic. It was the first comprehensive health care bill to ever pass out of congress and be signed into law.

What the Reps have done so far is put millions of people who currently have health insurance at risk, making it more difficult and far more expensive - especially for the elderly - to obtain and maintain health insurance, and providing more tax cuts for the rich. It there is anything historic in this, it's simply a reiteration of how self serving, miserly and out of touch house reps are.
