GOP Senator On Trump’s Healthcare Plan: ‘We’re All Going To Die’

Republicans and healthcare are two words that just don’t seem to fit together; like water and oil they just don’t mix.

After all, Republicans fought tooth and nail to block and water down Obama’s signature healthcare reform, the Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare), when he was in office and have been busily dismantling it ever since regaining power.

It’s easier to break something than to fix it and when it comes to improving the abject state of the American healthcare system the GOP don’t seem to have any answers. In fact, despite promising a new solution Trump and his party are now kicking the can down the road, claiming that they’ll have a “really great” plan to fix healthcare ready for a vote after the 2020 election.

While healthcare is quite literally a life or death issue for millions of Americans it seems the GOP is taking their time.

They’ve even got jokes! When Trump’s healthcare reform delay was challenged Senator John Cornyn quipped that, oh well, “In the end we’re all going to die, I hate to tell you.”

This was, of course, the Republican senator’s idea of a joke but somehow the uninsured masses on Twitter weren’t laughing.

Republicans have been out to block or kill Obamacare for so long that no one believes they are capable or even interested in replacing it.
