Na Na Hey Hey Goodbye!

What are these rich guys so happy about?

Kicking millions off their health insurance apparently tickles their funny bones.

Nothing cheers them up like cutting $840 billion from Medicaid. That money pays for many elderly and disabled folks in nursing homes in Watauga County and across Virginia Foxx's Fifth District, who have exhausted their personal finances and are unable to cope.

Nothing cheers up this bunch like undermining the provisions that prevent insurers from discriminating against those with pre-existing conditions -- by allowing states to seek waivers that would eliminate rules prohibiting higher premiums for people with serious medical problems.

Our hope now shifts to the US Senate, where the joviality of the crew above does not impress some members of their own party, the fat, stupid guy at the podium notwithstanding.
