Elizabeth Warren says Senate health care bill is ‘blood money’ paying for ‘tax cuts with human lives’

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) came out with vile, vitriol and hyperbole against the health care bill unveiled by Senate Republicans on Thursday, using the term “blood money” and claiming that the tax cuts will be paid with “human lives.”

The Massachusetts said in a tweet that  proposal was “blood money,” saying it would pay for tax cuts with human lives.

She also released a video slamming the proposal, saying it would benefit the wealthy and health insurance company CEOs with tax breaks that would come from cuts to Medicaid.

“Take a minute to think about what that means,” she said. “It means that one in five Americans who are getting their health care through Medicaid are going to have to suffer through those cuts.”

As noted by CNN on the Medicaid changes, the federal cuts proposed would restore the health care market to the states. Read more HERE.

It was no surprise that the liberal senator also objected to the changes to private insurance allowing cuts to essential services and cuts all federal funding to Planned Parenthood.

“This bill does not represent our values,” she said. “This bill is not who we are as a country. We believe that health care is a basic human right, and we will get out there and fight for it.”
