Republican Outrages

Republicans Are Trying Again to Jam TrumpCare Through the House

ICYMI, the Rules Committee reported out a rule today that provides for same day rule and suspension authority through this Saturday, the 29th. This will be included in the FOIA rule that the House will vote on tomorrow. Democrats offered an amendment to have this rule apply only to appropriations measures, which Republicans rejected.

So what does that mean? It means that, once again, Republicans are trying to jam their TrumpCare bill through the House. No hearings, no witnesses, no substantive debate, and extremely little time to review the bill.

Sounds like we’re all on the same page.

According to a NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released today, nearly three out of four Americans agree with bipartisan calls for an independent commission to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election. Now if only GOP leaders would listen…

From NBC:

Shut Down Amnesia

The Trump White House must not remember how the last shut down played out. With just four days in session before the April 28 deadline, reports indicate the White House and some Republicans are ready to shut down the government in order to fund their border wall. A look at some recent polling shows just how unpopular that would be with the American people:

From CQ Roll Call:

Afternoon Roundup, "Zombie TrumpCare" Edition

It’s clear Republicans aren’t listening to constituents back home who “want this repeal crap to stop.” After pulling TrumpCare from the Floor, they are now planning a vote on a revised (read: worse) bill, just so they can say they voted on it before President Trump reaches 100 days in office. The reported changes to the bill double down on proposals to make Americans pay more for less, kick millions off their insurance, and would allow discrimination against those with pre-existing conditions.
