"SNIP.................


The American Health Care Act — the Republican bill to repeal and replace Obamacare — was passed in the House Thursday without legislators knowing how many people it would cover and how much it would cost.

House Speaker Paul Ryan’s office wants to tell you otherwise.

On Saturday, Ryan’s spokesperson AshLee Strong tried to make the case that the AHCA went through a thorough and open process before last Thursday’s vote.

“AHCA was posted online a month ago, went through 4 committees, & has been scored by CBO -- twice,” she tweeted.

1. I do not believe the final version was scored by CBO.

Could it be? Republicans are lying? The Dickens, you say.

3. They are terrifying countless people

Only sick minds could do this. I can't even imagine what those on ACA with serious conditions are going through.

6. It is probably happening now. Why GOP House memebers won't talk about their 'great' plan on the air.
