Bad deal. I will call their local offices this week and let them know I’m displeased. I doubt that will make any great impact, but I have to start somewhere. And letting people know they’re on the “just die already if you can’t afford care” wing of the Republican Party is part of that.
Bonus: some thoughts from Echidne on the cost of losing the ACA.
