Illinois Left panics over Graham-Cassidy; ignores state's shrinking insurer numbers

Graham-Cassidy Bill
Tossing control of federal health care dollars back to the states is something the Left stands firmly against - and exactly what the Republican U.S. Senate majority's latest attempt at reforming ObamaCare would do.

Illinois' Left had nothing to fear from the state's two elected U.S. Senators. Of course, Senators Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth declared time and time again they had no intention of supporting the effort set forth by GOP senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Illinois native Dr. Bill Cassidy (R-LA).

American Bridge, an Leftist activist group blasted the Graham-Cassidy proposal and explained why the Left is so opposed to it:

    The Graham-Cassidy bill is the worst version of Trumpcare yet. The bill would kick 965,000 Illinoisans off of their health insurance and rob the state of $9.26 billion in federal funding over the next ten years. It ends Medicaid as we know it, guts protections for people with preexisting conditions, and defunds Planned Parenthood. The American Medical Association, AARP, The American Heart Association, and 35 anti-cancer advocacy groups all oppose the bill.
