1. I've considered becoming a full-time author for years. But I cant. Because of the @GOP.

I have a pre-existing condition and have struggled with getting health insurance much of my life. Their attack on coverage has been going on for 9 years....
@GOP 2...why the attack? There are those who say it is just because ACA is Obama. That is not it. Rich people pay more in taxes under ACA. That's all it is. The GOP would rather people die than someone with wealth have only 32 refrigerators instead of 34.

So they are in court....
@GOP 3...fighting to tear down the last vestige of ACA. Then they will come out and say "Oh, we will protect those with preexisting conditions. Here are high risk pools!" We've done them before. They are garbage. They do not work. But they don't cost rich people much. Then Fox...
@GOP 4...will start bleating "how kind and humane the GOP is for pushing high risk pools." And Fox cultists will nod their heads in agreement even as they die in the emergency room without coverage.

The reality? The GOP is ANTI-freedom. Millions have to build their lives around....
@GOP 5...health insurance. People work jobs they don't want for health insurance. They stay working when they don't need to for health insurance. And when the ACA came out - and CBO said more people would voluntarily stop working - the GOP screamed "it's anti-work! It's good for...
@GOP 6...people to be forced into jobs they don't want, or have to keep working when they don't need to. So long as rich people get more more more."

This is evil. I have been on the edge for nine years, unable to plan anything, because the GOP won't stop attacking and attacking....
@GOP 7...people can't plan. People don't know what the insurance rules will be next week, much less next year. Insurance companies can barely set risk assessments because the GOP never lets the market settle. All so rich people can have more.

It's disgusting. And sneering GOPrs are..
@GOP 8...too arrogant in their ignorance, or sociopathic, or just evil, to care about the huge price - in misery, uncertainty and death - caused by treating public policy like a team sport.

Just watch: High risk pools. That will be their lie. Cause the rich come out of that fine.
