    No. People voted out Democrats because they didn't like Obamacare (and a Democrat was President). Now they do like Obamacare (and a Republican is President), so Republicans are in a pickle. Substantively getting rid of Obamacare will lose the swing vote, but not doing anything will discourage their base. That's why the promise of more money for their individual states is relevant, the Representative or Senator can go back to their constituents and say "yes we got rid of the thing you didn't like before you liked it, but look, here's a thing you do like!"

    These Republicans don't want to get rid of Obamacare in order to provide something better. The needs and interests of their constituents don't matter, it's what the insurance companies and lobbyists want.

    This is Dictator for Dummies.

    Attack the intellectuals, the journalists, tell the people you're the only man able to fix their woes. He speaks glowing of the Erdogans and Putins of the world. Even Kim and Saddam got praised. He has shit on our allies though.

    They're aggressive in using the DOJ to go after protesters. Wibur Ross loved that Saudi suppresses all protest. Trump says he won't go to the UK until they like him more. He asked Theresa May to "fix it". She explained that they don't control the British Press but he was not overwhelmed with that excuse. We've got us a mini tyrant in the making. If you can't see that, then there isn't too much hope for the good ole USofA.

    Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross on Monday praised the lack of protests during President Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia.

    “There was not a single hint of a protestor anywhere there during the whole time we were there,” Ross said in an interview on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.” “Not one guy with a bad placard.”

    Host Rebcca Quick noted that the Saudi government did not allow political protests.

    Yeah this was an interesting article.

    McConnell has done more damage to the Senate in the last 10 years than the previous 200. His outlook has become short-term, and his respect for the institution takes a back seat to his own ambition.

    Though I wasn't exactly thrilled with some of Reed's work either.

    Wait, McConnel has "done more damage" in the Senate in the past 10 years than the previous 200, but you're just "not thrilled" with "some" of "Reed"'s work? Get the fuck out of here.

    McConnell: ‘Nuclear option’ helps Senate. McCain: ‘Whoever says that is a stupid idiot.’
    What's his motivation anyway? He's old and he's already "been there, done that." Why is he so desperate for wins? I don't see him running for President.

    This is your call to Arms Tg. Obviously, this aggression will no stand man. Now we have the POTUS telling everyone that it's ok because most people would do it ethics be damned. What are you gonna do about it?
