Is Putin behind the Obamacare repeal? Check Egoberto Willies for more...

Chris Hayes said what a few progressives have been saying for months now: the Russia story is distracting from issues that are more immediately impactful to middle-class America.

“I think there is a case to be made that Russia right now is helping the Senate pass a health care bill," Hayes said. "They would rather do this in secret with no public scrutiny, with no coverage. Which is what they are doing. And try to flip out a bill in 48 hours and vote on it. And that actually, you say they don't want to be talking about it [Russia]. They would rather talk about this than the health care bill."

Looks like it's all over but the graft and payoffs...

Looks like McConnell lets Murkowski and Collins vote token "no" but Heller and Portman cave quickly for the ACA repeal.

Nevertheless, I hope this can be a viable winning issue against the GOP for the Midterms, even in Red states.

Lets hope we can stop Trumpcare this month...so they move on to their tax giveaway fiasco...

and fail there, too.

But for now:

"The alternative story is that McConnell is pushing for a vote this month, even though he knows it will fail, because he wants to move on to tax cuts and "to ensure the whole year isn’t consumed by health care." But that doesn't mean they're not above trying to muscle it through. "We're getting to the point where people need to make decisions," Majority Whip John Cornyn of Texas told Politico."

4 weeks to sink Trumpcare! Let's do it!

Joan McCarter says the Republicans likely have to have a deal in place by July 4th. Let's make sure they don't!

"June could be a make-or-break month for the bill because, if the Senate has to negotiate a final bill with the House, it will likely need to be close to a deal by the July Fourth recess—just four weeks from now."

for people enamored with Warren Buffet...

Who I agree has said some great things and seemingly sided on the right side many times in statements...

Watch from say 10 to 18 minutes of this:



A person I also respect immensely.

If you have ever been in sales, you know shady and WELLS FARGO was shadiest.
