Desperate Republicans Sweeten Their Bribe To Get Lisa Murkowski’s Vote To Kill Obamacare

Senate Republicans have rewritten their unpopular Graham-Cassidy healthcare bill to increase their bribe to Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski.

NBC News reported, “An updated version of the Graham-Cassidy health care bill circulating among lobbyists and on Capitol Hill on Sunday night has changed to provide more benefits to Alaska, a move to appeal to Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who has been highly skeptical of efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. The new version would grandfather Native Alaskans into Medicaid so they wouldn’t lose coverage after the expanded Medicaid program is rolled back in 2020, according to a section-by-section summary of the new legislation obtained by an industry lobbyist (PDF).”

Republicans are trying to get Murkowski to vote to kill Obamacare by offering her state more Obamacare. If Obamacare is so bad, and such a destructive force to the healthcare system, why are Senate Republicans trying to pass their bill by offering on the fence senators the ability to keep Obamacare?

The answer is obvious. Obamacare isn’t bad. The ACA is so worth keeping that Republicans are offering more of it as a prize to Sen. Murkowski. Until all the votes are cast, and this bill is defeated, opponents of this legislation can’t let up. Senate Republicans are going to keep wheeling and dealing to get this abomination passed.

It is up to you to tell Lisa Murkowski and other Senate Republicans to vote no on Graham-Cassidy.
