    Default Democrats fume over 'secret' Republican healthcare bill

    Washington (AFP) - Democrats gearing up for a new round of battles against Republican efforts to do away with Barack Obama's signature health care law are condemning a US Senate replacement bill being crafted by Republicans behind closed doors.

    Senator Bernie Sanders urged Democrats on Sunday to do "everything they can" to oppose a Republican bill that for weeks has been drafted by party leaders in secret.

    "My understanding is that it will be brought forth just immediately before we have to vote on it. This is completely unacceptable," Sanders, an independent who is a member of the Democratic party leadership, told CBS's "Face the Nation" program.

    "It seems to me that what they want to do, because this legislation is so bad, is keep it secret, keep it hidden, and in the last possible second rush it before the Senate and get a vote within a few hours. That is beyond belief," Sanders said in a separate interview with CNN.

    The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office says that a House version of the bill -- an effort to overturn the Democratic former president's sweeping reforms -- would cause 23 million Americans to lose health insurance.

    The measure, which has already cleared the House of Representatives, is now before the Senate.

    "It was the worst piece of legislation frankly against working class people that I can remember in my political life in the Congress... Throwing 23 million people off of health insurance is beyond belief," said Sanders, who lost the Democratic presidential nomination last year to Hillary Clinton.

    I don't think I've ever seen hypocrisy on the level of the Democratic Party! They barred Republicans from having any say in Obamacare, which in hindsight was actually a blessing because it's so horrible, but they pitch a hissy fit when the same thing is done to them. Seriously, the Rapture cannot happen fast enough for me to get off this insane planet and away from these evil, satanic minions.

    I agree with you. The hypocrisy of these people is mind boggling.

    This news is laughable...Congress didn't even see the bill in it's entirety until after it passed...remember Pelosi...we'll have to read it to know what's in it...
    what a hypocritical joke

    And all of this for a bill that, in all likelihood, will not be that much different than Obamacare.
    (Based on what was put forth from this "secretive" process last time.)

    Just thought I'd pop by here to ask what you all think of the healthcare bill now that it's out? Seems like even public approval rates are extremely low. Millions stand to lose their insurance, and Medicaid stands to be slashed significantly ($880 billion over 10 years). This will affect people who are already quite vulnerable...

    I know Obamacare wasn't anyone's cup of tea here...but I don't think the AHCA is quite the suitable replacement anyone was hoping for. What do you all think?

    No. You just stopped by to spread some LEFTIST propaganda.
    Candy coated, of course, for plausible deniability.

    As to what I think: it isn't "out" as you say, except in the fake news.
    And when it does come out, it won't go nearly far enough.

    The house is burning down, and the social justice warriors and politically correct
    crowd are pushing us to replace the fire with a bigger and better fire.
