Hillary Clinton isn’t one to mince words and she recently ripped the GOP over their healthcare bill tweeting, “Forget death panels. If Republicans pass this bill, they’re the death party.”
She was retweeting a column written for the Center for American Progress, a liberal advocacy group and Harvard researchers that have claimed that anywhere from 18,000 to 28,000 people could very well die in 2026 if they were to lose their coverage due to the new healthcare policy.
Clinton is just one of many Democratic voices talking about the bill. On Thursday Barack Obama wrote on Facebook that “this bill will do you harm.”

Oddly enough this lines up with comments Trump himself has made about his healthcare bill when he called it “mean.”
Now he says it needs “a little negotiation, but it’s going to be very good.”
The Republicans can only lose two senators for the vote and currently, there are five who say they will not vote in favor of it.
