Scary GOP sce­nario

San Francisco Chronicle Late Edition - - OPINION -

The in­com­ing Don­ald Trump White House should be la­beled “haz­ardous for our health.” It’s bad enough that this pres­i­dent-elect is dis­mis­sive of our in­tel­li­gence agen­cies and reg­u­larly at­tacks the press. But with the prospect of a Repub­li­can-led Congress cut­ting busi­ness reg­u­la­tions that pro­tect con­sumers and gut­ting the Clean Air Act, our health and safety will be put at risk. Imag­ine hos­pi­tal emer­gency rooms be­ing filled with peo­ple sick from tainted food, pol­luted air and wa­ter. Imag­ine many cit­i­zens be­ing de­nied med­i­cal treat­ment be­cause they can’t get in­sured once the Af­ford­able Care Act is re­pealed. Is this sce­nario go­ing to make Amer­ica great again?
