    Yeah, that was obvious a threat to his fellow GOP.

    I would describe McConnell as a snake in the grass, but it's been well established that he is a turtle not a snake.

    You'd be hard pressed to find anyone outside of his own district that looks at the guy as an asset to Congress. That guy could disappear today and we wouldn't skip a beat...

    I hate McConnell and Schumer. These lifetime politicians need to go. Drain the Swamp.

    My only concern with term limits (one of the popular drain the swamp proposal) is that you will have rookie legislators and lobbyists will be even stronger.

    So the senate is going to stay in session to try to pass something. Will more time in Washington make the AHCA (turd sandwich) more palpable or give GOP a chance to ignore constituents who will be hurt by it?

    Let me offer a guess.

    The 'Ted Cruz Amendment'. Allowing insurance companies to offer an ACA non-compliant policy if the offer a compliant one. Basically, allowing insurance companies to two-track insurance. One cheaper track for younger healthier people and another very expensive for older sicker people.

    Increased [or at least not as much reduced] medicaid funding for opioid treatment. Targeted funding increases to meet the needs of Alaska, W Virginia and Maine. I think those are the Senators that not on board. Kind of a high age pork-barrel kind of thing.

    Some reduction in the tax cuts of the ACA taxes to pay for the increased medicaid funding. I think the bill has to be revenue neutral to be able to pass with 50 votes, so new spending or tax cuts have to be paid for.

    Ted Cruz and Rand Paul should be kept as far away from the healthcare forming committee as possible. There would be no healthcare period if they were involved.

    Rand Paul should probably just be safely kept away from most everything. I really only agree with him on pot and war. Let's let people use pot and let's not let government use war. Outside of that, I disagree with him strongly.

    Personally I'm not a big fan, but I think it'll be a whole lot less harmless than the alternative.

    New revised health care bill adds some tweaks to potentially woo both moderates and those who are more conservative, but appears to definitely favor the latter over the former. They'll vote next week. Sens. Collins and Paul still seem completely opposed to it, and one more defection again will kill it. The revised bill keeps the Medicaid sections almost completely the same, which was a key concern for the moderates. It added in a few ****** tweaks to appease the Cruzites.

    They're going more to the right, so next time FNK tells you the GOP's inability to pass this bill is the Democrats' fault, just laugh at him. Let's not forget either that McConnell is using the possibility of working with the Dems as a threat to the GOP. This is on them. It's their own ineptitude. Cried for 8 years about how bad Obamacare was and pretended like they had the answers, but nope. They don't.
