    Mad respect for the way you connected her admitted illegal email acts and rolled them into her completely legal work in regards to Benghazi, labeling it all illegal killing. Well done, who needs truth?

    There's really no going back. The good stuff it brought is now standard going forward. Really unless you're doing single payer I don't see what you can realistically replace it with.

    Right now it has nothing to do with Obamacare, which is the problem the GOP moderates have. The Senate bill wants to do extremely deep medicaid cuts. 700 billion worth of cuts over 10 years that will see 15 million people lose medicaid coverage, and those on it see their healthcare coverage become greatly limited.

    The Medicaid expansion is part of Obamacare.

    And she didn't get anyone killed either.
    Hillary's Emails- She was a government official, dealt with classified material

    Trump Jr. Emails- NOT a government officlal, DID NOT deal with classified material.

    Not hard to see the difference.

    The expansion is yes, but the cuts go deeper than that. The plan for the expansion is just to let it ride out then not renew it. Which many were ok with. It is the inflation adjustment that starts catastrophic cuts in 2025 that is killing the bill with moderates.

    Collins is now a hard no. So with Paul that is 50. Portman looks to be a no as well, with a dozen others leaning no. One more hard no and VP tie breaker is a no go and the bill dies.

    What about Kushner? He is now a government official who had an undisclosed meeting with foreign nationals. Over 100 of them. He a meeting with a foreign national that wanted to interfere with the US election and did not report it, then wanted a secret communications
    channel with Russian.

    Article of impeachment hit the house floor. Like most I am against them waiting for the Mueller investigation to finish.

    I am curious how the spin will go when someone from team trump does outright get exposed for collusion. Because we are getting really close now and the lack of experience is leading to a lot of self-disclosure from team trump.

    No one said the situations were identical.

    It's a comparison of a side being okay with bad decisions so long as they're not illegal on one side but being not okay with bad decisions if they're not illegal on the other side.

    It's funny to see how excited some of you are getting about nothing. Can't wait for this to be a "whole lot of nothing" like usual to see you all disappear from posting for a bit here and then coming back on the next fake news article that sounds damaging.

    Any news that makes Trump look bad is what it essentially means at this point. Even if it comes directly from them.

    So when the president and his son disagree, who's account is the fake news?

    So another day, another Russia story. Peter W Smith who claimed he contacted Russian hackers to obtain the Hillary email files with ties to Flynn was found dead in his hotel room.

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/l...714-story.html

    What is interesting is the method used was an exit bag. This is a common assisted suicide device or person suicide device in which a person ties a bag over their head and turns on a helium source. It is supposed to knock you unconscious in two breaths. During a review of urban myths I looked into this method and found that while this method is widely believed to be effective, changes to helium manufacturing around 2014 means that it results in many documented failed attempts. Since 2009, helium was suggested to be replaced with nitrogen and many groups now do no longer advise exit bags, instead suggesting chemical suicide with hydrogen sulfide instead for people who will not used benzos. Still considered the go to for assisted suicides though where someone can play and secure the bag.

    It is strange how daily news about ties between Trump and Russia are commonplace now.



    Fun fact found about fox news's website. It will auto censor this phrase in comments:

    "This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.”

    https://np.reddit.com/r/politics/com...k8<br /> 6v03/


    Also the fuck. Jared Kushner was using a lawyer at the same firm that Mueller worked in prior to the special counsel to represent him in the Russia probe. Jamie Gorelick rescued themselves finally.

    McCain is out of the Senate for the foreseeable future and may finally have to retire. Looks like with that, the health care bills officially are dead. In a rare moment of unity the political world came to together to wish him good health dealing with the brain tumor.

    Trump implied as well that Mueller should not investigate his finances beyond the Russian links.
