There was rising concern on #Capitol Hill on Tuesday with the crisis facing the Republican Party and their healthcare bill. House spokesman Sean Spicer attempted to restore faith in the beleaguered bill by arguing that they must embrace it, claiming that they've spent so long talking about it that to give up on the bill would be a waste of effort and concede defeat for the #GOP.

"If we don't get this through the goal of repealing #Obamacare and instituting a system that will be patient centered is going to be unbelievably difficult. This is the vehicle to do that," Spicer added.

But what exactly do Republicans mean by 'patient centered' #healthcare?

When the recipe for healthcare means 24 million people without healthcare, then that is not remotely patient centered. Isn't that what many would call federal budget-centered, since the bill will save congress $337 billion?

In the end, are we talking about humanity and health, or the business of making money from healthcare (whilst denying care to those who can't afford it)? #big business
