35. I was mentally composing a response calling these people all heroes

Jul 2017

when I saw the pictures of the "Little Lobbyists." That one broke me. It is just beyond comprehension some of these politicians would deny health care to to these kids. That is beyond barbaric.

But I have to hand it to John McCain. I stayed up most of the evening and watched the whole debacle. It seems clear he saved the day and perhaps many lives of those losing their health care. Rarely do we see someone, especially a Republican, stand up in disagreement against Trump's maneuvers and effective halt the process. His walking over and huddling with the Dems gave me new hope this Country can beat back the encroaching villains in our government.
