Two New Polls Confirm Toxicity of Senate TrumpCare Bill

Bolstering findings from an NPR/ PBS Newshour/ Marist poll earlier this week, two more national polls show the vast majority of the public absolutely hates the Senate TrumpCare bill.

Despite its new name and some tweaks, American voters disapprove 58 - 16 percent of the Republican health care plan to replace Obamacare, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today. 
USA Today/ Suffolk University:
Just 12% of Americans support the Senate Republican health care plan, a new USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll finds, amid a roiling debate over whether the GOP will deliver on its signature promise to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. 
In the survey, taken Saturday through Tuesday, a 53% majority say Congress should either leave the law known as Obamacare alone or work to fix its problems while keeping its framework intact. 
These numbers are great and again prove that most Americans can identify a shit sandwich when they see one. That doesn't mean the sociopaths in the Republican Party still won't try to get the tax cuts for their rich supporters that forms the basis of TrumpCare (and everything else they do, for that matter).

The July 4 recess is a time for all of us to continue to beat the drum about this malevolent effort by Republicans to decimate health care for poor and middle class people in this country. Take time, get active and we can stop this. Once again, here's what you can do.

BONUS:  That NPR poll?  It also had this finding --
... [B]y a 24-point margin, Americans believe former President Barack Obama was, by far, a more effective leader in comparison to Trump, 58 percent to 34 percent. Among independents, there is an even more pronounced 36-point difference, 65 percent to 29 percent.
