The cost of killing the ACA

The streaming of the Minnesota rally in support of Obama Care was not very compelling.  Schumer, the Dem Senate leader, was a total bust as a cheerleader; he seems to have nothing to say on the subject.  As usual Bernie Sanders in a brief statement laid out the issues with a strong, clear voice.  The union leaders also had some important messages to convey and did so well.

Of course, the other side of the coin is also revealing.  The Republican leadership really has offered nothing substantial in regard to how they are going to deal with health in the Trump era.  Which is not to say that they don't know what they are aiming at.  A clear-eyed view of what is coming is available from Allison K. Hoffman at REGBLOG.  Hint: think inequality on steroids.
