If you weren't sure whether outfits like Politico were totally leftist, this should end any doubt: It's a tweet from them--verified.
You may well wonder how "science" could suffer if Obamacare "protections" are weakened.
Good question. Glad you asked. It's really quite simple, if only your poor, uneducated right-wing brains could understand it. You probably can't, but the much smarter folks at Politico will try:
See, repealing Obamacare (exalted wonderfulness be upon him) would let you choose your own health insurance, at a lower cost, with far, far lower deductibles than now. And you'd have a wider choice of doctors, too. Okay, at first glance this may seem like a good thing, but it's really not.
It's not a good thing because it would represent a defeat for a major goal of the Democrat party.
If that's not enough, it would also prevent a Dem government panel from forcing the current, mandatory health insurance to cover, oh, sex-change operations--which is a basic human right, right?
And the connection to science suffering? Well, Trump and the Rethuglicans [sic] are anti-science, see? So by allowing them to prevail on repeal, you're siding with the anti-science forces. Got it?
Hell, the rethuglicans don't even believe global warming is caused by humans emitting CO2!!!! How much more anti-science can you get?
So...get with the program, people! You don't wanna be anti-science, right? So write your congresscritter and demand that they keep Obamacare.
