In other news, the Pizzagate gunman who shot up a pizza parlor because he thought Hillary Clinton was running a pedophile ring out of the basement has formally plead guilty.

Meanwhile, House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes now says he doesn't know if anyone close to Trump was incidentally picked up on wiretaps. He was just running his mouth earlier.

Finally, Eric Trump will continue discussing family business with Trump according to Forbes. It's a not-so-Blind Trust.

Trumpcare is dead.

I know people who would be dead or dying without Obamacare. I'm drinking to them tonight.

    Democrats have won this battle. But they must continue battling if they hope to win the war. Republicans are, if not anything, relentless in trying to get their way.

      Oh, gods, yes.

      And Democrats are notoriously fickle at keeping the pressure on. Which is why we have to.

    This is to be remembered. President Doesn’t Give a Crap would have signed anything that the GOP put on his desk. Most especially the draconian TrumpNoCare bill the the GOP just gave up on because…..voters. Even the GOP itself admits this.

      The reason they didn’t do the thing they promised to do for seven years straight, is they were afraid it would actually happen. Unreal and says it all.

    • That is so chickenshit I’m actually kind of impressed.

      Translation: “We don’t really want to repeal Obamacare. We just want to look like we do. If we actually get the chance to kill it we’re going to run away screaming.”

      Holy crap.

        If they do, it is the people who voted for them that they are most harming.
        I thought representative government was all about a government of, by and for the people. So how does that square with what they were trying to do. Obamacare has been good for people. It has saved many lives. It has made our society a better, more caring society. And BTW, what is the matter with these people that they seem to think that that is a bad thing?

          Because Obama was a better person than they are, and they know it and resent it. And rather than follow his example and strive to be better they do what the weak and insecure and cowardly always do, they instead try to tear him down.
