Let me educate...Politicians will name their bills, "Fluffy Bunny People WIN" but realize that the fluffy bunnies people might get maimed within the bill. In other words, read the fine print.
No offense, dude, but a guy who gets his information primarily from Alex Jones, QAnon, and /r/conspiracy isn't really in position to educate anyone on anything.
Do you ever see a group of silver cars and believe they're following you?
He's right though.
Eg. Remember the bill they were coining the "Patient's bill of rights" from a few years back? That was primarily a document putting limits on how much you can sue for in medical malpractice.
In any case, only a small section of any given bill has anything to do with the title.
Bills are vast collections of unrelated-to-the-title material promoted by lobbyists to senate staff, selectively globbed (via a give&take process of negotiation with senate staff, and on rare occasion the senators themselves).
Fore example, here is the ACA printed out : https://cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/130719154054-boehner-obama-health-care-story-top.jpg
Most of that stack is unrelated to Obamacare, it's just in the same bill.
Yes, the Simpsons mocked this 20 years ago. It's common knowledge. I wasn't saying he was wrong, I was saying "let me educate you" was laughable and hysterically condescending.
