(CNN)Sen. Bernie Sanders did not hold anything back Thursday when he condemned the House passage of the Republican-backed bill to replace Obamacare.

"If the bill passed today in the House became law, thousands of Americans would die, because they would no longer have access to health care," Sanders told CNN's Anderson Cooper on "AC360."

The Vermont lawmaker and former presidential candidate claimed the Obamacare replacement provides billions of dollars in tax breaks to the wealthiest 2%.
"What kind of health care bill are we talking about when you throw 24 million people off of health insurance," Sanders said.

3. If deplorables want to lose their Obamacare and commit suicide so to speak,

Can't they at least hang themselves or shoot themselves so there is no collateral damage to the rest of us? Suicide by MOAB shouldn't be an option.
If they so desperately want this huge tax break for the wealthiest, let them opt out of Obamacare and volunteer for Trumpcare. If Tcare is so popular with their base, it seems like enough of them would opt out so they could afford at least half of the tax cut.

4. I had a run in with a deplorable at the Ducks - Oilers game last night.

This guy was atrocious. Literally everything he said was "Fuck Canada!" and "fuck your healthcare!". I just about had it with this guy and I was going to report him to the ushers. But it got me thinking - I have a perfect response to the "fuck universal healthcare" argument. And that is just ask them - do you want to pay $150,000 or more for surgeries? I know I don't! Think about how much money that is. The millionaires and billionaires are the real people who are mooching off your paycheck.
