Point de Vue

I went to check out the protest downtown against the proposed health care bill. It drew a nice crowd of very passionate people.

I found it ironic that the rally took place under the shadow of the Trump hotel, with a clear line of sight to the Capitol building where that monstrosity of a bill was being discussed. The hotel dwarfed both the protest and the Capitol (see extra).

Up to 30 million people will lose their health insurance, yet some Republicans think the bill isn't going 'far enough.' One of them actually said: I don't think I need to pay for prenatal care; it's got nothing to do with me... Another suggested that withholding treatment from cancer patients would 'remove' them from the system quicker...Who are these people????
