Don't Really Care About the Mooch

He's an asshole.  So what news is this?   Duh??? Trump punts someone, brings in another shithead.

What I DO care about is that Mitch McConnell is going for it again.  The new thing, block grants for the disable and sick.  And resident phony Lindsey Graham is helping.
The group is trying to write legislation that could get 50 Republican votes, according to multiple administration and Capitol Hill sources. The proposal from Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) would block grant federal health care funding to the states and keep much of Obamacare’s tax regime. White House officials also met with House Freedom Caucus chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) to brainstorm how to make the idea palatable to conservatives, according to two sources familiar with the meeting.

You might ask, what will block grants and caps hurt?  If the states divvy it by county, then more populated counties will get less per person for the population.  If there are caps, those who have more expensive need will usurp all the money, which could result in those who have serious need possibly not having enough funding get their needs met.  Or, it could force those who need fewer supports to go without.   And that's just the start of the avalanche....there's so much more to this, and all I can see is doom.  Because someone somewhere will try and sleeze this past McCain, Murkowski and Collins.


Can we please help Mitch McConnell to get a life?  One that will take him away from persecuting the weak.   Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
