The New York Times published an extensively-researched article about the “blueprint for defunding Obamacare” created “shortly after President Obama started his second term.” The plan was devised by the usual right wing conspirators: Tea Party Patriots, Americans for Prosperity, Freedom Works, the Club for Growth, and Heritage Action. Where did the money come from? Charles and David Koch, through one of their front groups, spent more than $200 million on this sinister effort.
When Hillary Clinton said there was a “vast right-wing conspiracy,” people said she was exaggerating. We now know she was right.
The shame is that all this money and suffering is being caused to prevent Americans from getting affordable health care.
