Here are the four Kentucky reps who voted to take away your health insurance, without reading the bill, without any hearings, without any CBO score, and without any support from Democrats:

  • Rep. Andy Barr (R-Wall Street)
  • Rep. Hal Rogers (whose district will be the most affected in Kentucky)
  • Rep. Brett Guthrie
  • Rep. James Comer

All of these will be up for re-election in 16 months. Let us hope that someone with more compassion and less love of Trump will run to oppose them.
