Malevolent Government for the Rest of Us

So here is what is going on, in my eyes.  The House Republicans are trying to see if they can get some momentum going their way.  But they in no way want to be in harm's way.  Nor do they want anyone they know to be affected, because it would just be unpleasant to have to live with the consequences of their actions.  So they pass this bill, with themselves and their staff exempted from it.  What this says to me is that understand exactly how bad this will be, and they just do not care.  People will die, that is a certainty, but let it not be someone they know. 
They have been able to easily pass bills to repeal Obamacare when they knew that they didn't have the votes to defeat a veto, but they have not spent quality time figuring out a solution that they could live with.  They themselves that is.  A healthcare bill that would impact their healthcare.  No, instead they pass something that the Koch brothers could have dictated in their sleep and call that governance.  Bought and paid for.  That is what we have instead of the governance our forefathers foresaw.
