A coming phenomenon I will name R.I.D.

Daily Kos pointed me toward an article about a large Social Security savings under the Republican insurance plan. Three billion dollars. Sounds great, right? This figure comes from the Congressional Budget Office.

So where do you think this savings comes from?

Extra deaths from people who lose coverage.

They calculated this by looking at how many lives the Massachusetts plan saved when implemented and reversing the number.

I have a suggestion. I suggest we name these "Republican Insurance Deaths," or RID's for short, and that we keep a count and keep it public. And of course that we publicize cases we learn about.

Let's hold them accountable.
