Hartmann on the reality of the wealthcare bill
He starts by giving stats on Medicaid. Right now 2/3 of seniors in nursing homes or retired living get Medicaid. Half of all babies born in the US get coverage from Medicaid. 39% of all American children are covered by Medicaid. And the Repugnantans want to severely cut, and eventually get rid of, this program. They do not care that a lot of people, including children, will die as a direct result. And why? To give tax breaks to the wealthy. It is, as Senator Warren aptly calls it, blood money.
