What Fresh Hell Is This?

U.S. Representative Mike Doyle (D-PA-14), Earlier Today

A transcript:
Thank you, Mr. Chairman.

For seven years, you promised the American people you're going to repeal and replace Obamacare and this is what you come up with? This is a bad joke.

No wonder you've been hiding this dog in a cave with an armed guard until Monday night. No wonder you're not holding hearings on this bill. No wonder you're rushing through this markup. No wonder you're going to try to vote in two weeks.

Today, Republicans give you a survival-of-the-fittest, starring healthcare for the healthy and wealthy. For the rest of Americans, you're going to pay more money. You're going to get less coverage. The American Enterprise Institute: 10 to 15 million people are going to lose their health care.

And how do they pay with for this dog? Over in The Ways and Means Committee, they're playing reverse Robin Hood. Six hundred billion dollars in tax cuts for companies and rich people!

Boy, they really are looking forward to getting that money.

And you pay for this bill on the backs of the Medicaid expansion and Medicare recipients.

It is disgraceful. And when people find out about this bill you're gonna wish you don't go anywhere near your hometown town-hall meetings.  You've been ducking them and wait till you go home and get a handful of this.
Give 'em hell Congressman! Give 'em hell!
