Facing off against the GOP's "devastating," dystopian, mendacious "Let's Kill People We Don't Care About For More Tax Cuts Bill" is an impressive wall of opposition. Joining it on Monday was the massive American Medical Association, arguing the bill violates doctors' fundamental duty to "do no harm," and rural doctors bluntly warning, "People will die." Arrayed against these humane voices: Mitch McConnell, master of dickery, who should be held to account for what amounts to "death care."
