What you see in this country is the logical conclusion to...

Hate radio and faux news. These media outlets have taken over the Republicans. Until we outlaw these hate groups it will only get worse. That is all.

Susan Collins: I 'hope' my votes to destroy health care don't actually destroy health care

Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) is desperately trying to escape her responsibility should federal courts strike down the entirety of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which would cause millions of families to lose their health care.

On Tuesday, Collins could barely muster any concern for the havoc she played a role in creating, saying that the case "may well end up at the Supreme Court and it's my hope and belief that the Supreme Court won't strike the law down."

More than 130 million Americans with preexisting conditions could lose health care protections if the Trump-backed lawsuit against the ACA is successful. More than a half-million of those people live in Maine — and the best Collins can offer them is "hope."


In other news Susan Collins says she is not sorry for her vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh.

A black hospital patient went on a walk with an IV drip. He got arrested.

(CNN)A black man says he was racially profiled by white police officers while he was being treated at an Illinois hospital and went for a walk hooked up to an IV drip.

Police arrested Shaquille Dukes, 24, of misdemeanor disorderly conduct after a security guard called them, saying that Dukes was trying to steal medical equipment.
The Freeport Police Department confirmed Sunday in a statement that Dukes filed a complaint "alleging unfair and biased conduct by responding officers." The department said it has retained an outside, third-party investigator to "gather the facts, interview all parties involved, and determine whether officers conducted themselves in adherence to department policies and guidelines."
