This Chart

Many versions– this is from WSJ:

It strikes me as highly unlikely a version of the Republican plan close to this ever becomes law.  But if I’m the Democrats, I do my best not to let any Americans forget this chart for the next four years.  24 million more people without health insurance.  That’s something Democrats should have written on their forearms every time they go on TV and talk with reporters.

And, here’s the thing, even if Republicans pull back and only kick 10 million or so off insurance, don’t let this go.  “Congressman X supported Paul Ryan’s plan to take health insurance away from 24 million Americans so that the richest 1% of Americans could have a tax cut.”  And don’t stop.  There’s the wonderful added benefit of this being true.

More later.
