Right now, the country is in a race against the clock to stop the GOP Senate’s deadly massive tax cuts for the rich that is disguised as a healthcare bill from becoming law. That means all hands on deck – including 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Taking to Twitter, Hillary reminded Republicans about how they went on and on about the so -called “death panels” that would decide which sick and old and disabled people got to live or die under their imagined authoritarian rule of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
However, that was never true, and more people than ever have healthcare in America. Now, the GOP is working as hard as they can to make sure people with disabilities, poor children and families, the chronically ill, the elderly, and others who rely on the life-saving care provided by Medicaid will die so that their billionaire buddies can get massive tax cuts. Well, Hillary had a brutal – but oh so true – message for the GOP should they pass this bill:
Forget death panels. If Republicans pass this bill, they're the death party. https://t.co/jCStfOaBjy

Hillary is right. If this cruel bill becomes law, people will die, and the GOP will have that blood on their hands. They literally don’t care, though. They care about money, power, and political careers, not the people they are supposed to be representing.
Keep speaking truth to power Hillary, no matter how many people tell you to go away. We need all the voice we can get right now. American lives depend on it.
