Charles Pierce boils it down.  
This is not a healthcare bill. It's a tax cut. And it would kill millions.

I am a 61-year-old woman on Obamacare right now. Trump promised me something better. Trump lied. I am going to be totally screwed.

I never believed him, of course. I don't think he even knows truth from fiction.

But some people believed him. I don't know how they're going to react. I don't wish them ill, but I do hope they understand what fools they were. And I hope that for all of us, this bill fails.

I think you're right about him not knowing truth from fiction. At the very least, he's in denial.

I am torn up about the people who believed in him. He's a bullshitter and a blowhard and it was never more obvious than it was on his campaign trail. And part of me blames the GOP in general - they've been pretend that if only we cut taxes and deregulated, rich people would "create jobs" as if making jobs more expensive (by cutting taxes on the wealthy), and reducing the work needed to comply with regulations would make jobs more numerous.

But even with people peddling lies for 20+ years, don't these people know *people*? Haven't then known some tall-tale peddling fool who drinks each round, but when it's time for him to pick up the tab, has a sad, tragic tale about why he can't "...but next time! It'll be amazing!"
