I know today is a rotten day. I know that you are probably sad, disheartened, pissed off, and just absolutely disgusted.
Disgusted that those SOB’s voted to take away healthcare from at least 23 million people…so that the Koch Brothers and the Mercers can get a tax cut.
Because, that’s what this about.
And, watching the spectacle of them cheering that lowdown muthaphucka, who had the nerve, while sick, to come and vote to take away someone else’s healthcare.
MILLION someone else’s…
Enough to make you shake with complete and utter rage.
But, we have work to do. We have a fight to continue.
From Senator Murphy:

1/ A “scaled back” repeal bill, just so Senate GOP can get to conference, equals unconditional surrender of Senate GOP to the House bill.
2/ Since Senate would go to conference without a bill (effectively), House bill would act as a default for any negotiations.
3/ And negotiations would be minimal, bc Senate GOP would have lost all bargaining power by their inability to produce a bill.
4/ House bill, with minor changes, would emerge from conference. 23 million losing care, end of Medicaid as we know it, etc etc.
5/ Bottom line, any Republican voting for a “stripped down bill” is voting to fast track the House repeal bill into law. Make them own this.
CALL CALL CALL!!!
