I know not everyone likes it when I talk about how much passing Shitcare 3.0 will hurt Republicans. But I think it’s important to keep talking about it, because (a) it’s true and (b) it’s the argument that should most convince Republicans not to pass the piece of crap.
If Graham-Cassidy is signed into law, it just might represent the death knell of today’s GOP.[….]
Of course, all of this hinges on Graham-Cassidy actually passing. That might not happen, as some of its regulatory provisions might not pass muster under the Byrd Rule, and because Sens. Lisa Murkowski and John McCain might break ranks with their fellow Republicans while Sens. Rand Paul and Susan Collins show no signs of softening their opposition. If the Republican dissenters continue to hold out, they will almost certainly stand accused of party disloyalty. But in a roundabout way, they might be doing their fellow Republicans a huge favor.
So, McCain and Murkowski, do it for your constituents, do it for conscience, do it for your party. Just vote against the fucking piece of shit.
