@SecPriceMD: With this plan moving forward in the House, every American will have access to health insurance.

 

Just like every American has access to a Mercedes Benz - provided they have the dough.  What a load of HS.

CNN interviewed a Black lady who is a Trump supporter and a cancer survivor.  She acknowledged that Obamacare saved her life as her treatment costs would have been one million dollars and she previously had no insurance.  She voted for Trump anyway because she thought he would be good for the economy.  Now she is lamenting the impending loss of her coverage.  Asked what she thought of accepting money from the government for her own health coverage she replied that she had no choice.  I guess that is the crux of it.  I'll take it if it is me but I won't give it if it is you.  How American.

'Trump Is Absolutely Right, Everything Was Being Monitored' http://dld.bz/f4Bm8 

 

 

"Sen. Graham and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, a Rhode Island Democrat, sent a letter to FBI Director James Comey and the acting deputy attorney general Wednesday, requesting any information regarding Trump's claims.

"We request that the Department of Justice provide us copies of any warrant applications and court orders — redacted as necessary to protect intelligence sources and methods that may be compromised by disclosure, and to protect any ongoing investigations — related to wiretaps of President Trump, the Trump Campaign, or Trump Tower," Graham and Whitehouse wrote.
 
 
-There are two possibilities here: Either Trump made the whole thing up or Trump was wiretapped because an intelligence agency was able to obtain a warrant to do so.

I have to laugh at the Conservatards who think just because Ben Carson is a neurosurgeon, that makes him an expert or even vaguely knowledgeable in any other area than neurosurgery. 

 

They are big dips who keep on towing the party line no matter how insipid or outlandish it gets.

If Mr. 6666 will forgive me, I'll give a brief description of the 6 bills, for those who don't click the links:

1) HR 861 eliminates the EPA by Dec. 31, 2018

2) HR 610 repeals the 1965 Elementary & Secondary Education Act so that the DoE can only award grants. It also expands school voucher programs.

3) HR 899 eliminates the Department of Education by Dec. 31, 2018

4) HR 354 prohibits any funds from going to Planned Parenthood for one year, or until PP can prove that they no longer provide abortions.

5) HR 83 removes any federal financial assistance from cities or states that are "Sanctuary Cities" or in other ways obstruct the efforts of the immigration enforcement agencies.

6) HR 147 criminalizes abortion.

Congressman Joe Kennedy III — US Representative for Massachusetts District 4·

"Last night, Speaker Ryan called the GOP repeal bill 'an act of mercy.' With due respect to the Speaker, he and I must have read different scripture. The one I read taught that we are judged not by how we treat the powerful but how we care for the least among us. There is no mercy in a system that makes health care a luxury. This bill is no act of mercy. It is an act of malice."


Well said by Joe Kennedy.

American Medical Association opposes GOP healthcare bill-

 

“As drafted, the AHCA would result in millions of Americans losing coverage and benefits,” said Dr. Andrew Gurman, president of the American Medical Association (AMA), referring to the American Health Care Act.

“By replacing income-based premium subsidies with age-based tax credits, the AHCA will also make coverage more expensive — if not out of reach — for poor and sick Americans. For these reasons, the AMA cannot support the AHCA as it is currently written.”.....

"House Republican leaders are proud of their plan to roll back key pillars of the Affordable Care Act. But Tuesday, the proposal has invited criticism from rank-and-file lawmakers, powerful conservative groups and key senators that could threaten the bill's survival.

The fiercest opposition is coming from some of the most conservative Republicans in Congress....

Experts: The GOP Health Care Plan Just Won’t Work-

 

 

"They rarely agree on much, but health care experts on the left, right and center of the political spectrum have found consensus on the House GOP's Obamacare replacement: It won't work.

 

While their objections vary depending on their ideological goals, the newly introduced American Health Care Act (AHCA) is facing an unrelenting wave of criticism. Some experts warn that the bill is flawed in ways that could unravel the individual insurance market.....

"Hawaii filed the first legal challenge to President Donald Trump’s revised travel ban on Tuesday, asking a judge to temporarily block his executive order the day after it was signed.

 

The court filing from the office of Hawaii Attorney General Doug Chin argues that the ban—which blocks travelers from six majority-Muslim countries from entering the U.S.—is resulting in “the establishment of religion in the state of Hawaii contrary to its Constitution.”.......
