The House GOP plan to uninsure 20+ million is complete ‘f**kery’

House Republicans plan to keep their ‘repeal and disgrace’ plan secret until the last possible moment First, the good news: Showing up and getting all up in your Representatives’ grills, especially during Congress’ recess, left elected officials “blown away.” Republicans still can’t agree a plan to replace the Affordable Care Act because, according to Politico, “the process has been bogged […]

And John Dingell is an institution. That’s the thesis of my argument in USA Today that my former representative in Congress should be named to give the […]
