The Republicans narrowly opened debate over healthcare in the Senate, with Mike Pence breaking the tie over the discussion.
This occurred following another tweetstorm by Trump, where he addressed the issue multiple times.
Yet again, he pressured Republicans and attacked Democrats for being obstructionists, although their no votes make no difference towards the Republican majority in congress.
While preparations for the vote were occurring, protesters shouted “kill the bill, don’t kill us!” and “shame”. They have a pretty good point.
All the CBO scores of the differentiating Republican healthcare bills range from 23-32 million more people being uninsured under the new bills. None of this is good news for the American people.
Luckily, as every other effort to pass a bill in the Senate related to healthcare has failed, this one most likely will as well.
All of this is occurring among one of the busiest days in Washington, with separate drama between the most unpresidental President and his attorney general.
So it goes.
