Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is a Monster
Why you might be asking?
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is
The March of Dimes paid in full
Mitch McConnell's hospital stay
for Polio as a child
until he was completely healthy.
to understand how terrible this is, first you need to indulge me and listen to a story.
You see, way back in 1944, when Mitch McConnell was only 2 years old, he contracted polio.
The disease, which often paralyzed those it affected, hit McConnell hard and threatened his ability to walk,
but thanks to
the hospital in Warm Springs, Georgia,
that was funded by the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis (NFIP), a charity started
FDR to treat people with polio,
McConnell was able to recover and live a normal life and grow up to become a senator.
Well, as you know, McConnell and his cohorts in the Senate have been drafting legislation in secret that will take health care away from
millions and millions of Americans.
They've been doing so with no public hearings, no public debate, while refusing to meet with patients' groups that wanted to get the senator's ear about how this legislation could negatively affect, you know, sick people.
Among the groups
the American Lung Association,
the American Heart Association,
the American Diabetes Association,
the March of Dimes.
