So as you may have heard, the Republicans voted at one in the morning on cutting key parts of the ACA, including pre-existing conditions and keeping children on their parents' plans.

And why?  Well, a report from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities points out that the repeal would be a tax cut of about $7 million dollars a year to the 400 highest-income households in the US.  And a tax increase for everyone else.  On top of making it far more difficult to get health insurance.

I'm amazed that between this, private prison, hydrofracking, that there isn't a consistent message from the opposition: "Your suffering is their profit."  You want a simple message?  That's it.  I've said it before and I've said it again, the current state of the Republican Party sees America as a piggy bank and gov't as the hammer.
