This is something the Republicans have wanted to get their hands on for years so they can squeeze the life out of all of those receiving benefits and put those very same dollars into thier pockets and laugh all the way to the bank while blaming someone else. The total lack of conscience in the republican party is so close to that of a fascist ideoligy that even France and old Italy would be in awe. The concept of rolling back medical coverage for people without the ability to afford such coverage or the ability to work for the same is in itself a travisty and will give the republican party a moniker they will spend the rest of thier days attempting to ride themselves of. They need to understand something that is very simple, the tax-paying public has a very short fuse when it comes to thier senior family members and those with disabilities being denied medical treatment due to the dismantling of their paid for social programs. Remember, that number of registered voters is about 45 million, if the republicans think they can withstand that onslaught, remember , those 45 million have family members that vote too!
It seems that the republican party has in its ranks a group of individuals that thought they could become political while signing thier alleagence to someone that was not elected ,so in a sense ,they have betrayed the country they swore to protect, in essence ,they lied.
To be as little minded as this is , those individuals should not be allowed to be in a position that affects so many outside of thier small circle of influence,and the leadership, if you want to call it that, of the republican party should resign for thier inept handling of some junior members of thier party. Makes you wonder who is in charge of this debacle anyhow?
