Today’s GOP quote of the day is a good reminder for our Republican friends that budget/shut down/debt limit brinksmanship hasn’t gotten them anywhere in the past.

As the House and Senate reconvene this week, it seems the District Work Period did not go very well for the GOP, who once again got an earful from their constituents who oppose TrumpCare. Of course, that should come as no surprise following the latest CBO score that confirmed 23 million Americans will lose coverage and premiums will spike for millions of others.

Bad news for Republicans: TrumpCare isn't getting any more popular.

Need further proof that Republicans’ request to delay their cost-sharing reductions lawsuit will harm consumers?

Today’s GOP quote of the day comes from Rep. Mike Simpson (R-ID), who slammed the Trump Administration’s budget for the draconian cuts it’s expected to make.

Americans across the country are sending a clear message: TrumpCare is a bad idea

May 11, 2017

With each passing day, TrumpCare is getting more unpopular.
