RoJo health insurance repeal to make sick people suffer

[Updated on 9/21/17 from 9/20/17] 
I'm not a "Morning Joe" fan, but I turned it on a few minutes ago Thursday morning for Hurricane Maria news and there was RoJo, mumbling and mushing together sentence fragments, as is his won't, about the rushed-wreck-Obamacare bill he's co-sponsoring. 
Advice, by example, from RoJo should he blow up your health care and wallet:

Marry up. 

As I've been noting, WI GOP Tea Party Senator Ron Johnson is among the far-right Senate business bellhop caucus which is hell-bent with the pledged help of Paul Ryan's equally callous and deologically-run House of Representatives to strip life-preserving health care coverages from millions of vulnerable Americans.

And also to further strip away for purely partisan reasons Pres. Barack Obama's legacy achievements.

I can't remember a more despicable inside power move by millionaires like Johnson and Paul Ryan against at-risk people - - especially kids with birth defects or disease contracted through no fault of their own, and who need medicine and treatments to live, grow, participate in society and succeed.

A move against people who weren't catapulted into the upper 1% by marrying into money. As did Johnson, an eventual company executive.

With this twist, as PolitiFact explains.
Announcing a statewide tour in his campaign for reelection, a Johnson news release said Johnson "started" the Pacur plastics manufacturing company he owns.
The claim contradicts Pacur’s own company history and Johnson’s prior statements, which make it clear he helped start Pacur with his brother-in-law, who was more involved in the founding. Johnson didn't do it alone.
As for Ryan.
By the time Ryan had entered Congress in 1999 at the age of 28 and filed his first disclosure statement, he reported assets between $167,000 and $1.3 million, owned a home and had three rental units.
The next year, Ryan married Janna Little, a tax attorney, and his income skyrocketed. (Ryan reported gross income of $323,416 in 2011.)
Of the Ryans' maximum estimated assets of $7.6 million, Janna's holdings account for about $6.5 million. She is the daughter of Dan and Prudence Little, two lawyers in Madill, Okla., who over the years have overseen a vast network of land and oil and gas mineral rights in the Red River area straddling southern Oklahoma and northern Texas.
When Ayn Rand meets Scrooge, the rich get richer and get elected as Republicans to maintain their status and advantage, keep the poor in their place and the sick even sicker.

Here's the latest from the Associated Press.
