So today the Republicans voted in favor of denying healthcare to 50 million Americans, for allowing insurance companies to deny coverage based on pre-existing conditions, for continuing a system that is the primary reason for 60% of individual bankruptcies, for allowing insurance companies to continue with bloated administrative costs rather than paying claims.... for perpetuating one of the least efficient healthcare delivery systems in the world.
No question the Republicans today well differentiated themselves from progressives, proving once and for all it is the regressive party.
