Senate Republicans officially released a “working draft” of their healthcare reform bill on thursday.
Not surprisingly, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi immediately criticized the bill.
She referred to the bill as “sad, mean, and heartless.”
“It’s still, as the president called the House bill, mean,” stated Pelosi in a media briefing. “He said he hoped the Senate bill would have heart. So sad, Mr. President. Sad, mean, and heartless.”
She continued dismissing the bill later via Twitter.
“Trumpcare an incredibly mean and thoroughly heartless piece of legislation,” Pelosi posted to Twitter.
#Trumpcare is an incredibly mean and thoroughly heartless piece of legislation.

Actor James Woods caught wind of her tweet and proceeded to destroy her.
“So is this a healthcare proposal you actually READ?” tweeted Woods, referring to Pelosi’s infamous statement, “We have to pass the [health care] bill so that you can find out what’s in it.”

Conservative Tribune reports:
Both the House and Senate versions of health care reform would get rid of the individual mandate, phase out Medicaid expansion, eliminate Obamacare’s onerous taxes on the wealthy and defund Planned Parenthood for at least one year.
The bills differ in regard to subsidies for purchasing insurance, as well as the rate at which Medicaid expansion would be stopped. The Senate has proposed a more gradual path than the House put forward.
Pelosi thought she could slam the Republican efforts at fixing a massive mess she played a big role in creating, but Woods was there to call her out on her glaring hypocrisy.
Ouch, Woods absolutely destroyed Pelosi. The Democrats need to back down and realize that ObamaCare was a colossal failure and that it cost the average American too much of their hard-earned money.
