Oppose GOP health care bill | Letter

The U.S. Senate plan is not a health care bill. It is a massive transfer of wealth from working people to Wall Street. The Senate bill taxes working people’s health benefits, while cutting taxes for millionaires and insurance companies. That’s just wrong. The Senate bill effectively destroys Medicaid — stripping health care from children, seniors and low-income Americans. Our health care system needs to be improved — we all agree on that. But this bill would do exactly the opposite — for no other reason than greed. I urge Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell to vote “no” on the Senate health care bill and to support Medicare for all.

Thank you.

Sandra Masterman,

Bothell
