The Moral Horror of the Senate Trumpcare Situation

I need to stop and talk for a second about just how fucked up it is that the Senate Republicans are trying to jam through their shit version of Trumpcare without even letting the public see it. These are supposed to be our representatives, but they won't even let us see the bill because they know that we, the people, will hate it. And we'll come out against it just like we did with the House bill, only that will make it so much harder for the Senate bill to pass because they don't have the same majority in the Senate.

But just. This is a huge bill that will affect everybody, cause some 25 million people to lose their health insurance, and is a death sentence for some of those people. I personally know people who will go bankrupt and/or die if Obamacare is taken from them. And I can't save them. I don't have tens of thousands of dollars or more sitting around. All I can do is sit around and wonder how in the fuck did we get here?

This massive of a bill, a bill determining our access to healthcare, and they won't let us see it. They're only going to give the Democrats 10 hours to review it. Because they know it's going to fuck us all over. And they don't care. They don't care about even pretending to give a fuck about us anymore. They're over there working to fuck us over as fast as possible. They want to write up this bill that might as well be called "Fuck Over the Poors and Give Ourselves All the Money and Power" behind closed doors and they're going to try and cram it through before we can even gather up our defenses to try and stop them.

They're fucking evil. They're villains. They know what they're doing is wrong and they're doing it anyway. They know people will die and they're killing us anyway. They know we don't want this and they're imposing it upon us anyway. These are not our representatives. They don't represent us. They've stopped even pretending. Isn't this supposed to be that tyranny thing that people were freaking out about over the eight years of the Obama presidency? But instead of trying to give us affordable healthcare they're taking it away. All to give the rich billions in tax cuts.

Why are we letting them do this to us? Why are we letting them get away with this? Why are we letting these evil people rule us?
