Two weeks ago a reality check occurred, one that reminded us that the midterm elections have life and death consequences. It also reminded us that the last lion of the United States Senate, one who made the politically hard but humanly and compassionately easy choice between life and death, has died and gone home to meet his maker no longer able to prevent certain death for some and preservation of life for others.
Two weeks ago the second most powerful Republican in the country, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, said Republicans could try again to repeal Obamacare if they win enough seats in the midterm elections next week. He described Republicans’ failed attempt to repeal healthcare for millions of Americans a “disappointment”. McConnell hopes favorable results for Republicans in the midterm elections will give them a second bite at the apple. But based on non-partisan facts favorable Republican results in the midterm elections will mean a healthcare disaster for America.
