Just when we thought we’d heard it all…

... we see a headline like this: GOP Congressman Says A Drop In The Number Of Insured People Could Be "A Good Thing"

And that's coming from the Chair of the Energy and Commerce subcommittee on health, Rep. Mike Burgess (R-TX). We'd wager that most Americans don't agree that kicking millions of people off their health coverage is a "good thing."

Suggested Questions for GOP Leadership

We here in the Democratic Whip Press Shop thought we’d pass along a few questions you may want to ask Speaker Ryan and Leader McCarthy at today’s press conference:

GOP QOTD: “If I could give you an answer today, I would, but I can’t”

Today’s Republican quote of the day comes from Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI). When asked what would happen to a constituent if the GOP moves ahead with their efforts to Make America Sick Again, he confirmed that Republicans still don’t have a real plan to replace the Affordable Care Act. From the New York Times:

Another Day, Another Ignored Constitutent

Over the weekend, House Republicans continued to avoid their constituents who oppose GOP efforts to repeal the ACA without having a real plan to replace it.

Roll Call reports Rep. Chris Collins (R-NY) refuses to hold a town hall meeting to hear from constituents:

“Despite his colleagues’ continued attempts, New York Republican Rep. Chris Collins has no intention of holding a town hall meeting.”
