Republican lawmakers are having some second thoughts about the bill they are constructing to repeal Obamacare, formally known as the Affordable Care Act that provides health care insurance at reasonable, subsidized rates, irrespective of pre-existing conditions to almost 30 million Americans.
They know that repealing Obamacare will leave these almost 30 million Americans without health insurance, and that will likely result in serious illness and probably deaths for many Americans.
But that is not what is troubling Republican lawmakers.
Republicans know very well and can accept that they may ultimately be responsible for American deaths by taking away American’s healthcare. What Republicans are trying to figure out is how to add a provision to the repeal bill to guarantee that these expected deaths will be slow and painful, nasty bastards that they are.
