Eager to demonstrate that he’s ready to advance a conservative agenda should events force him to replace Donald Trump, Mike Pence has reportedly met with House Freedom Caucus members to discuss a new health care bill. Fortunately not much has changed:
That idea, he said, would allow states to apply for federal waivers exempting them from some health insurance mandates established under the Affordable Care Act — including “essential health benefits” requiring coverage of mental-health care, substance abuse treatment, maternity care, prescription drugs and more, as well as a provision that bars insurers from charging the sick more than the healthy.
Go to hell, you deplorable bastards. I’m the Democrats are crawling all over themselves in their enthusiasm to work with you.
