    Today is an important day for saving healthcare. We are down to the wire here, so I hope it’s OK if I again share a link from Indivisible for those of us lucky enough to live in blue states. If you’re in a red state, you already know what to do today!

    This simple tool gets you set up to call allies in Red states and encourage/love/support/remind them that they need to keep calling their senators:

    For those of us who have already been calling, I know this has been a long slog. I’m feeling a little crispy around the edges myself, but this isn’t the time to stop. The pressure needs to increase so that McConnell and company aren’t able to pass their invisible zombie bill.

        It just blows my mind how blatant people have become expressing racism. bigotry, violence…it’s okay to be open with it.

          Well, their president has opened the door to expressing bigotry in public loudly and proudly. Not surprising that bigots feel that they have a green light to do the same.

    Hope Trump and his band are told that he may need Lisa Murkowski’s vote and other moderate Republicans’ votes on other legislation or action in the future so go ahead and burn some bridges now and have no expectations for later. He will also have zero leverage then either and who knows how important such a future vote could be to him, if not to the rest of the US and world, it could be a vote on impea…….?

      That’s awful to hear. When people voted last year, they could have at least split Congress so that Democrats controlled at least one chamber. But here we are with Republicans in full control. They’ll do what they want which is to destroy the ACA and Americans who depend on it.

    Very on point observation at Balloon Juice as to why the GOP Senators are stepping up to the plate for Attorney General White Citizens Council:

    Chris says:
    July 27, 2017 at 11:26 am

    I think it’s a lot more sinister than simply solidarity between senators. I think the reason they’re making noises about Sessions is because he’s the nation’s leading expert on how to suppress votes, specifically the votes of liberal demographics in general and nonwhites in particular. And that vote suppression is what most Republicans in Congress are counting on to save them from changing demographics and allow them to maintain power in a country that’s increasingly not on their wavelength. That’s why they’re making all this noise. They’re happy to let Trump indulge himself on any number of topics up to and including treason, as long as he keeps bringing in the votes, but Sessions is not simply one of Trump’s pet projects, it’s something that matters deeply to their survival as a party, and they’re letting Trump know that they’re not going to let him fuck that up in a fit of dumb pride.

      I tend to agree with this astute observation. Sadly. Nothing is what it first appears with these cretins…there is always a more sinister underbelly. The actions MUST match the words. Remember that.

No way to straighten it out…..no way in to pull on a thread to clear it up. These guys have gotten themselves so twisted, no one knows what is going on, I firmly believe that. Least of all, Trump, of course. He thinks that executive orders are true legislation, now he thinks that a tweet is legislation! Anyone who thinks he is smart, doesn’t know smart. And, as shown by the Interior Secretary, his cabinet members know about as much as he does. NONE of them ever look even one step ahead of what their gonads tell them to do at this moment.

    Question about the Skinny Repeal…

    I understand that there are waivers/amendments that don’t pass the Byrd Rule and would require 60 votes to pass. Also, if I understand correctly, if there is no CBO score, 60 votes will be required to pass.

    If those items that don’t pass the Byrd Rule are removed, will the Skinny Repeal only need the 51 votes (assuming there is a CBO score)?

    I guess my question is, what will allow the repeal to pass without 60 votes and how can those loopholes be prohibited?

    • July 27, 2017 at 2:29 pm

      I wish I could help you. As closely as I’ve been following this, McConnell has turned this into one of the biggest legislative messes I have ever seen. I’m sure the confusion is on purpose. I detest these criminals.

    CBO Score is up: ‘Skinny repeal’ of Obamacare would leave 16 million more people uninsured in a decade

    In a hasty analysis sought by the Senate’s Democrats, congressional budget analysts are estimating that the changes would leave an additional 1 million Americans uninsured this year, because consumers would immediately become free to drop coverage. The loss of insurance would quickly swell to 15 million in 2018, mainly among people who buy health plans on their own — the kind of coverage sold through the ACA’s marketplaces — or through their jobs.

    At the end of the coming decade, 16 million extra people would be uninsured, according to the nonpartisan budget scorekeepers. That is almost three-fourths of the 22 million extra people the analysts predict would be uninsured under the Better Care Reconciliation Act, the much broader Senate Republican bill that would unwind much of the ACA and substitute with new policies. The Senate, including nine Republicans, rejected that bill in a vote on Tuesday night.

    Under the skinny version, the largest additional segment of people without coverage in 2026 would be 7 million who otherwise would be on Medicaid, the public insurance program for low-income Americans. That’s even though the skinny plan would not touch Medicaid’s rules or funding. The broader GOP health-care legislation would reduce Medicaid recipients that year by 15 million. That broader bill would abolish the ACA’s expansion and, for the first time in Medicaid’s half-century history, start in a few years to restrict funding for the program as a whole.
