Under McConnell 'health' plan, 32 million lose coverage

[Updated from 7/19/17] Remember when
Ron Johnson, official portrait, 112th Congress.jpg
ol 'Ron Johnson said he wanted certainty that GOP Senate Leader Mitch McConnell's 'health care' plan would definitely kick plenty of low-income grifters off the insurance rolls?

Or else, maybe Johnson might not get to "yes."

Well, the good news is in: GOP bill-drafters had first run Mitch's plan through the Republican Exclusionary Algorithm and it rang up anmimpressive score once the Congressional Budget Office double-checked the math that should put a smile on RoJo's face:

32 million.

(I should say that the Republican Algorithm was first used to compute the number of Mexican immigrants which could be deported in Trump's roundup, then and was used to guesstimate the number of Muslim travelers that could be banned by Trump's Muslim ban that wasn't a Muslim Ban. I'm told it's also being run by Trump's voting fraud commission to predict how many Democratic voters need to be purged to guarantee Trump a second term unless Robert Mueller has a better formula. I acknowledge being inspired to disclose the Algorithm by Al Franken's wonderful new book, Al Franken, Giant of the Senate, and its discussion of the De-Humorizer machine that Republicans used to distort his comedy.)

Anyway, It's safe for Ron Johnson to come down now, you Tea Party Senior Senator, you, from your procedural perch two days ago:

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) is now up in the air about voting to proceed to the health care bill. 
32 million is surely the clincher. Big Mitch had your back.
