HOORAY Trumpcare Imploded (E33)

The BCRA, Straight Repeal, and Skinny Repeal versions of Trumpcare ALL FACE PALMED Thursday night/Friday morning. We’re gonna recap reactions from us and from listeners, as well as talking about what’s next.

And it seems like just last week that we were making fun of Anthony Scaramucci because…it was just last week! And now he’s fired. So we’ll do a little dance on the grave of his short-lived Comms Director career.

MENTIONED ON THE SHOW

  • Give money to ADAPT’s legal fund! ADAPT led the fight against Trumpcare & to save Medicaid. Alexis pitched in $200 — can you donate and help us raise another $200?
  • Have a laugh at the replies to Sam Stein’s Scaramucci tweet.

Let’s Stop Trumpcare for Good (E30)

If you want to support the show, you can do so on Patreon for as little as $1 a month. You’ll get access to bonus content each month and help us keep the show going!

Trumpcare has stalled in the Senate today, but the fight is just getting started. We CELEBRATE but then get right to talking about what we need to do next. We also dive into some wonky details about why Trumpcare, if it passes, will gut Medicaid forever — and the dangers that we ALL face, however we get our insurance, from this evil Trumpcare bill.
