It was even more surreal for the blatant lies coming out of the mouths of various Republicans about what this bill will do, at least if the final version remotely resembles this one.
"The Senate is starting from scratch". That momentous announcement brought a very short-lived reprieve, as last Thursday the House Republicans narrowly passed Trumpcare 2.0, despite overwhelming opposition from major medical organizations (AMA, American Hospital Association, American Nurses Association, 10 health advocacy groups, including American Heart Association and March of Dimes), AARP, and many everyday Americans. The vote on this bill was held without hearings, without a score from the Congressional Budget Office analyzing its full impact, and without giving members enough time to even read the bill.

"The same people that are saying that are the same people that went out there and said to the face of every American if you like your plan you can keep your plan, if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor", said Mast.
Ryan dismissed the idea that elected officials and the public had not gotten a chance to fully understand the bill as "the left trying to throw sand in the gears" of repealing and replacing the ACA.
