Occupy Democrats exposed an awkward skeleton in Senator Mitch McConnell’s closest last week.The Republican politician from Kentucky had actually simply released his deceptive TrumpCare plan, and it was quickly ascertained that the costs will take a meat cleaver to Medicaid and other openly funded health care programs. A minimum of$880 billion will be cut from Medicaid impacting 75 million individuals, and a full 23 million Americans will lose their health care entirely over the next 10 years.Which made it even more ironic that Sen. McConnell, now the face of this Republican effort to
kill ObamaCare and take public healthcare funding far from so many Americans, really depended on public healthcare financing himself as a child when he was affected with polio.
“My mom was, of course, like many mothers of young polio victims, perplexed about what to do, anxious about whether I would be disabled for the rest of my life” he admitted in a 2005 interview.Luckily, about 50 miles from his house, the March of Dimes funded a polio treatment center.In reality, it’s just because of the generous
assistance of the March of Dimes, a charity begun by President Franklin Roosevelt, that Sen. McConnell is even alive today to advance a costs that will deny millions of kids comparable life-saving medical care.Well, the March of Dimes was ready to provide Sen. McConnell the benefit of the doubt.
They asked to meet with him to discuss their opposition to the expense and see if they might alter his mind, or at least hear from the horses mouth how he justified the crippling cuts his plan would impose.Apparently, the Senator was too busy.We’ve understood for months that Republicans were outrageous hypocrites figured out to roll back anything with Obama’s name on it, no
matter how numerous Americans are affected. Now it appears they are cowards, too.
