The Party Of Death: New Study Shows GOP Health Plan Will Kill Over 40,000 Americans A Year

The “pro-life” party has officially become the party of death: It has been estimated that if the GOP is successful in eliminating the Affordable Care Act that at least 43,000 Americans a year will die from lack of adequate health care.

Congressional Republicans are pursuing this policy in order to give millions of dollars in tax cuts to the very rich. President Trump, who is a billionaire, would financially benefit if Republicans succeed in repealing the ACA.

It is abundantly clear that Trump and his party possess a deep disdain for sick people, the poor and other vulnerable members of American society and wish to do them harm.

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) said told CNN during an interview:

“My understanding is that [the new measure] will allow insurance companies to require people who have higher health care costs to contribute more to the insurance pool. That helps offset all these costs, thereby reducing the cost to those people who lead good lives, they’re healthy, they’ve done the things to keep their bodies healthy. And right now, those are the people — who’ve done things the right way — that are seeing their costs skyrocketing.”

As Salon Magazine states, “these comments are abominable. Brooks believes that babies and children with serious illnesses deserve their fate, or that those who have “done the things to keep their bodies healthy” and still develop chronic diseases like cancer have done things the “wrong way”.

One must wonder:  Why do Republicans and conservatives have such hatred for the weak, the vulnerable and the sick?

Well, a new survey from the Pew Research Center offered some helpful insights on these questions:

By about three-to-one (66% to 21%), Republicans believe the reason someone is poor generally has more to do with of a lack of effort than circumstances beyond a person’s control. By 71%-19%, more Democrats say that circumstances beyond one’s control are generally more often to blame for why a person is poor.

By about three-to-one (66% to 21%), Republicans say hard work, rather than a person’s advantages, has more to do with why someone is rich. By nearly as wide a margin, Democrats and Democratic leaners say the opposite: 60% say a person is rich because they had more advantages than others, while just 29% say it is because they have worked harder.

The research found that Republicans and conservatives are more likely to hold the erroneous belief that good things happen to good people and that individuals who suffer disadvantages in life that are out of their control are somehow responsible for their circumstances. The just world hypothesis is a fallacy.

The Republican Party’s war on the American people and the common good should be condemned by all decent human beings. Any Republicans who vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act should be publicly shamed and voted out of office.
