Fortunately, America dodged a bullet when the GOP’s replacement of Obamacare failed to pass.
The GOP’s plan was to greatly reduce the funding of Medicaid and leave millions of the most vulnerable Americans without access to health care. Kentucky’s own Sen. Mitch McConnell was primarily the author of the GOP replacement plan.
Kentucky had nearly 500,000 who gained health care coverage via Obamacare with the increased eligibility for Medicaid, which covers the low-income families that are prevalent in Kentucky. These are McConnell’s own constituents.
If this doesn’t demonstrate McConnell’s lack of concern for the well-being of the citizens he represents, it’s hard to come up with a better example.
