5. I think she is ducking for cover

She's one of those senators who don't want to hurt poor people too badly. I imagine she's hedging her bets until she sees which way the winds are blowing.

That means Murkowski is the most important senator to call right now

4. This is really sad, but I am beginning to think that we need to think in terms of

minimizing the deaths this bill causes in the long term. And when you think of it that way, I am not sure what to wish for.

If the bill does not go through, they will bleed the ACA until it cannot survive and they will blame the resulting chaos on the Democrats. I fear that if that happens, there will be no medical coverage for another generation.

If the bill does go through, people will suffer horribly in the short term, but the ramifications of supporting Republicans will become clear to millions, and perhaps we will create a reasonable plan four years from now.

I hate to say this, but I am beginning to hope their monstrosity passes.

7. going backwards

Appears the general direction Trump wants to take Americas healthcare is back to the pre ACA period where only the rich get or could afford decent healthcare.. What a racket.

12. back to the old days

for President Vanilla ISIS that would be prior to the Civil War. Back in the Halcyon days when minorities were forced to know their place.

Is there a "make everybody over fifty curl up and die" draft bill sitting in some Conservative Think Tanks some where? I need to read it to see if it's good or bad first.

8. It will be a nightmare no matter which Republicans are involved.

There is no such thing as a moderate Republican.

13. Equally scary is the specter of their outright lying that it's good for people, and getting away

with it.
