Blood Money: people will die. “Now we know the truth. Senate Republicans were sitting around a conference table dreaming up even meaner ways to kick dirt in the face of American people and take away their health insurance … Republicans worked really, really hard on this bill and it’s pretty clear now exactly who they were working for; this bill has one flashing neon sign after another telling us who the Republican party cares about and it is not American families … The Senate bill is crammed full with just as many tax cuts as the House bill: tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires, tax cuts for wealthy investors, tax cuts for giant companies – but all those tax cuts don’t come cheap. They start to add up after a while. So Senate Republicans had to make a choice how to pay for all those juicy tax cuts for their rich buddies. I’ll tell you how: Blood Money … These cuts are Blood Money. People will die. Let’s be very clear. Senate Republicans are paying for tax cuts for the wealthy with American lives.” – Senator Warren, June 22, 2017
