We are living under an oligarchy, which is a group “that exercises control, especially for corrupt and selfish purposes.”
The best example of that is the Trump/GOP health plan to replace Obamacare. It will kick 24 [million] citizens off of health care insurance. It raises premiums for the older, seniors, poor and disabled by 750 percent. It cuts Medicaid funding by $880 billion. It gives the rich a near trillion dollar tax cut over the next decade. It gives to the states the right to waive out of Obamacare’s ban on [denying coverage for] pre-existing conditions. And it cuts some essential benefits. …
This bill is written to help the rich and healthy young, but not the rest of us. This is oligarchy, which Trump and the Republicans want to force on us all. God help us all.
