Late Monday night, a series of tweets on health care reform were sent out by Ted Cruz, detailing exactly what he felt was necessary in passing the Graham-Cassidy bill, or any other health care reform bill that comes before the Senate. The tweets suggest Cruz is open to last-minute changes that will win conservative support from him and others like him – those who are | Read More »

Since its enactment, I’ve always acknowledged the fundamental flaws in Obamacare. Because of the law, I was able to stay on my parent’s health insurance until I was 26. By then, I had a full-time job with excellent health benefits, including medical, dental and vision coverage. Frankly, my health coverage was better than that of my parent. As millions of Americans grappled with skyrocketing health | Read More »

Already the John Kelly era has brought a certain calm dignity to the White House. The president now seems to be getting his information presented properly, rather than through television. Best of all, there have been no new Twitter rants. Perhaps this means we have opened a new chapter — one in which the White House concentrates on priorities like tax reform and repealing ObamaC– | Read More »

My colleague streiff posted on Friday about a lawsuit filed by a retired attorney (who else?) accusing the GOP of doing THE RICO!!!1!

Earlier this week, Connie Yates and Chris Gard, the parents of Charlie Gard, announced their heartbreaking decision to stop seeking treatment on his behalf. As Chris Gard said at the time, “We’ve decided it’s no longer in Charlie’s best interest to pursue treatment and we’ll let our son go to be with the angels.” Sadly, the news came yesterday that Charlie has indeed joined the angels. | Read More »

It appears that any chance of repealing (and replacing?) the Affordable Care Act died last night as Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins were joined by John McCain in opposing the Senate’s “skinny repeal” bill. Here’s how it went down. Yesterday afternoon, the Senate voted against a straight repeal of the Affordable Care Act. It was a floor vote Mitch McConnell had promised after the failure | Read More »

I saw this clip this evening and flew into an apoplectic rage. When I become this angry, blogging becomes therapeutic. My fury is now your problem. It all started with this statement by Sen. Lindsey Graham: Graham: “The skinny bill as policy is a disaster. The skinny bill as a replacement for Obamacare is a fraud.” (via @MSNBC) pic.twitter.com/5gA7QSXWN3 — Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) July 27, | Read More »
