  2. Republicans: Where the Heck is Tom Coburn?Read the original story w/Photo

    1 hr ago | OpEdNews

    As I watch Republicans scramble in a vain attempt to repair a terminally ill healthcare plan, indeed, severely defective from its inception, I must ask the authors the true 64,000-dollar question: "Where the heck is Tom Coburn?" No offense to Dr. Tom Price, but Coburn is the real dean of any legitimate attempt by conservatives to initiate private sector-based national healthcare. Make no mistake.

    As everyone knows by now, the so-called "Freedom Caucus," formerly known at the AstroTurf "tea party" -- a.k.a. the Koch-funded project to get the Bush stink off of the word 'Republican' -- were the ones who ended up doing the country a favor and blowing up the Zombie-Eyed Granny-Starver's rotten debacle of an ACA "repeal and replace." These cretins didn't like the law.

    1 hr ago | Common Dreams

    Sen. Bernie Sanders appeared on CNN's 'State of the Union' on Sunday morning and said that while reforms to healthcare are, in fact, needed, the Republican approach has proven to be roundly unpopular. While intra-party disgreement among Republicans and a nationwide grassroots effort to stop the cruel and unpopular healthcare reform bill known as Trumpcare undoubtedly fueled its collapse on Friday , Sen. Bernie Sanders on Sunday morning made it quite clear that Democrats not cooperating with Donald Trump and the GOP's regressive agenda is not the problem that needs addressing on Capitol Hill.

    Rep. Trey Gowdy told CBS' Face the Nation host John Dickerson that he hadn't seen any of the intelligence Rep. Devin Nunes says he has, but defended the House Intel Committee chairman's highly unusual actions because Trump is the president. Republicans, including Trey Gowdy, went nuts when former president Bill Clinton had an impromptu meeting on an airline runway with then-AG Loretta Lynch, blaming that meeting for shielding Hillary Clinton from being prosecuted for something, when there was no evidence of that at all.

    I'm not a fan of the Freedom Caucus, but let me get this straight: Paul Ryan writes a health care bill that only 17% of voters support , that is projected to cause 24 million people to lose health care, that calls from constituents oppose 35-to-1.and it's all the fault of the Freedom Caucus that the piece of shit didn't become law?

    Never before has Senate leadership so openly and intentionally played political games with our highest court. The consequences are staggering While Russia's involvement in our elections is unquestionably horrible, and it will likely take many more drip, drip, drips before we know the full extent of it, our democracy is facing an equally devastating threat much closer to home.

    When people say that Clinton and/or the DNC "cleared the field," I've never been entirely sure what this means, if it doesn't just mean "Clinton, like everyone trying to win a presidential nomination, tried to receive endorsements and raise money, and did this very well."
