Barnicle: The Poor, Ill and Elderly “Get Whacked"

“Senator, if you look at the House bill and the Republican bill, you see that the poor, the ill, the elderly, and the addicted really get whacked in both pieces of legislation. So, this question isn't about substance. It's about you in the Senate, not just you specifically, but the United States Senators and Congress people. When normal human beings look at what has been done, they get the sense that you are totally isolated from reality, from the way people live each and every day. What's your response to that?” asks Morning Joe veteran columnist Mike Barnicle of Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) during an interview about the GOP health care plan devised to replace Obamacare. Listen to Manchin’s response and his invitation here.
