Republicans are trying to repeal Obamacare again. At this point, the efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act have passed the point of political failure and have become embarrassing. Republicans are like the creepy guy who keeps shooting his shot even though he keeps getting curved. The Republican Party…
One of the biggest losses in the Trump era hasn’t just been common decency, civil discourse or some semblance of global respect. We all knew those Ls were coming when Donald Trump won the Republican presidential nomination.
No one ever taught me about Emmett Till. When I was 11 years old, I was sitting in a room filled with black men at my uncle’s New Jersey apartment. As they joked around with one another in the bawdy way men are apt to do when they’re by themselves, a traditionally attractive white woman popped up on the television…
Early Friday morning, the seven-year effort by Republicans to repeal Obamacare came to a thundering end—at least for now—when Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) came through and dropped that no vote down like:
As Senate Republicans huddle in a Capitol-building closet and deliberate on how to strip people of their health care coverage through a dangerous mix of alchemy, conservative math, obfuscation and outright lies, let us remember the important part of the story of the GOP’s efforts to snatch Obamacare from millions of…
Senate Republicans have delayed their plans to vote on their newest Trumpcare bill because they now realize what many knew when GOP leaders locked themselves into a room to craft this deadweight anchor of a bill: It’s trash.
This vomit-inducing Senate revision of President Donald Trump’s initial trashy health care bill was doomed from the time Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell thought it was a good idea to have an all-male GOP lineup working behind closed doors in secret to create it.
If the Trump administration has its way, religious employers will be allowed to deny their female employees contraceptive insurance coverage. Currently, under Obamacare, birth control is deemed an essential preventive health service that is fully covered.
Thursday morning, while we were all preparing to lose our health insurance, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) stood on the House floor and gave the kind of speech that would have you nodding your head and saying “Amen” if you were in church. When she was done, Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) called her “hysterical.”
House Democrats taunted their Republican counterparts as GOP representatives passed a bill that would erase the signature legislation of the Obama administration and replace it with a tax break for the wealthiest Americans and simultaneously karate-chop 24 million Americans in their soon-to-be uninsured throats.
House Republicans introduced a health care amendment Tuesday night that would allow individual states to opt out of Obamacare’s provision prohibiting insurers from charging higher rates for those with pre-existing conditions, with one catch: Members of Congress and their staff would be exempt from the higher premiums.
Looks like those “California girls” (in this case elected officials) continue to tell it like it t-i-s.
Brutal. Shameful. Embarrassing. America hasn’t seen a politician take an L this bad since Papa Pope read Fitz. In case you missed the sound of a million souls crying out in joy, then suddenly drowned out by loud laughter, the Republicans’ ill-fated attempt to scrap and replace Obamacare flopped miserably today.
White House Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney has been working tirelessly to push this bullshit Republican health care bill through the House.
White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told GOP lawmakers that President Donald Trump is demanding a Friday vote in the House on the Republican plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, and if the House rejects the GOP plan, Trump is prepared to move on and leave Obamacare in place.
President Vladimir TrumPutin is issuing vague threats to House Republicans who don’t vote for legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare. On Tuesday, two days before a scheduled vote on the American Health Care Act, TrumPutin held a private meeting with House Republicans.
Despite our reasoning skills, development of complex languages and cross-cultural ability to learn the Electric Slide, humans are basically animals, and all animals share fundamental traits. Take dogs, for instance: I have an enormous, bumbling, spoiled brat of a Great Dane named Omar. When Omar was a small puppy,…
While Donald Trump presides over this poorly produced reality show that we call a presidency, we must admit that it has been extraordinarily entertaining so far. Although the thrilling tales about the administration’s secret Russian rendezvous and Trump’s paranoid schizophrenic late-night tweets about dead people…
Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) is a horrible person. During an appearance on CNN on Tuesday, the horrible Chaffetz was being challenged on House Republicans’ newly released proposed health care bill, the American Health Care Act.
The wait is finally over. House Republicans have finally released their master plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known (to the shock of millions) as Obamacare, in the form of two bills that would replace federal insurance subsidies with individual tax credits and grants to help states create…
