It's Polite To Write Thank-You Notes
Now that House Republicans have, by the barest of margins, passed Zombie Trumpcare — with no CBO report, no hearings, no final print-out of the bill — we cats say it's time to get out pen and paper and write those thank-yous.
We'll even help with what you can say. Here goes.
If you're one of 24 million Americans on an Obamacare medical plan: "Thanks for taking away my affordable insurance."
If you have a pre-existing condition: "Thanks for making it impossible for me, with my [FILL IN THE BLANK: diabetes/congenital heart disease/breast cancer/asthma], to ever get coverage."
If you're an illness away from financial ruin: "Thanks for guaranteeing that having a medical catastrophe in a non-Medicaid expansion state means that I'll go bankrupt."
If you're a Trump voter in a state like South Dakota: "Thanks for making sure that my small rural hospital closes its doors."
For the rest of us: "Thanks for handing the House of Representatives to the Democrats in 2018!"
We cats PURR.
