The Secret Trumpcare Farce

by / Jun. 9, 2017 10am EST

Not only is the Republican-controlled Senate going to ram Trumpcare through while you’re distracted by Comey and Russia, they’re not even going to bother to hold a single hearing on it. 

Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill (D) asks a simple question in the Senate Finance Committee — will there be a hearing?

Chairman Orrin Hatch (R) can’t answer and needs to be fed a talking point from a staffer — a talking point that is so glaringly false that McKaskill immediately swats it away for the lie it is. 

That’s the sound of Congress effectively revoking the health coverage of 23 million Americans, and doing so in a fundamentally undemocratic fashion.
