Democrats' outrage against the GOP health care bill is baseless and dangerously inflammatory, especially in the wake of Republican congressmen being shot at a baseball game, holds Jonah Goldberg of National Review. In particular, claims that the bill will cause the death of huge groups of Americans is based on no verified statistics and unjustly paints the GOP as actual murderers. This rhetoric is not only out of place in politics, it can also incite the kind of violence seen in the Virginia shooting. Rather than constructively working to better the American health care system, they are fighting any Republican improvements tooth and nail.
By choosing to implement a highly incomplete and ineffective health care plan, Republicans are putting their party before the American people, argues Sander Levin for The Hill. They have come up with a plan that will cut vital subsidies, which cover countless middle class citizens. Even worse, knowing the outrage that their bill will cause, they have done everything possible to streamline it and keep it out of the public eye for as long as possible. Currently, they falsely claim that Obamacare is failing so that a replacement seems needed. Blind to the good of the American people, Republicans are motivated by partisan and selfish reasons.
