This is the week Todd Herman registers as Independent

The GOP “health care” plan is not a health care plan. And it’s inspired me to register as Independent.

It is a welfare expanding, IRS empowering, big donor kissing, freedom destroying, free market ignoring, monstrosity of a cluster something.

This would only make sense in Washington D.C. In every other industry, competition is allowed to come and disrupt.

President Trump says he’s proud to support the replacement plan. But I don’t understand why he’s proud of it. This has nothing to do with the free market. And this won’t cut anyone’s costs.

This is a $100 billion dollars borrowed in your name and given back to you.

They are blowing up the individual market. The exchanges and the subsidies are tailor made to big companies. And this blocks start-ups. It’s a massive shell game. It makes the problems of Obamacare worse because they remove the employer mandate.

This is disastrous in all regards. This is the week I become a registered Independent. This is the week professional Republicans in Washington D.C. are dead to me.

As always, please listen to the full audio clip for complete context.
