Most elected representatives had long forgotten that we citizens are out here & that they're supposed to represent us. Now they're freaking out that they can no longer operate in a vacuum. Keep showing up & speaking up dear citizens.
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) tried placating his constituents with a telephone Town Meeting yesterday. Let's see how that works for him.
Meet them at the airports, dog them at their homes and offices every minute of the day and night. Chase them back to DC with their tails between their little legs. Do not relent.
I've been in healthcare/social services since I was 18 (now pushing 40, ugh). You CANNOT walk into an expensive steakhouse, order a beautiful, expensive cut of meat, have some sides and a few drinks, maybe a piece of chocolate lava cake....and pay with a five dollar bill.
That's basically what Donald Trump promised, and what people still believe.
Back the GOP reps into an even deeper corner.
They don't intend to keep any of Trump's promises that he made at his rallies, over and over again.
If you abolish health insurance, service prices will collapse.
In you face white nationalist, he is just another apartheid Israel sympathizer
Fired up but they voted for them. What were they expecting? That the GOP actually had a plan?
Obamacare to be replaced by Trumpdoesn't.

Obama care is a rip off for the working class . All this is a money grab by elite .funneling cash outta U S leaving the citizens with Nothing . Look around yourselves New World Slavery includes everybody
Then Republicans will have to answer up to why our parents and grandparents were thrown off Medicaid and out of nursing homes in order for rich trash to have tax cuts! Republicans have been voting against their own best interests for the last 5-6 decades and one day may realize the Republican Party doesn't really care about you and I and sure as hell doesn't like the poor and middle-class!
I find watching my favourite dvds puts me to sleep. If I wake up during the night I put the dvd back on and go back to sleep. Strangely I sleep like a baby when I am camping.
First, open the window and throw all of those cushions through the window. Close the window and sleep like a baby. Do not tread in the coffee cup on your way to the window.
I tried the soap for my foot, but it was a nuisance, kept on kicking it and kept on waking me up, didn't seem to work anyway.
Russia carried out a massive cyberattack against America last year to destablize our great country. Trump response? Silence. Is that how a US president responds to an act of WAR?!!
Trump's Amerika. How low can America go. Trump is tearing America apart, destroying our economy, ripping up the Constitution, and embarassing us internationally. Trump must RESIGN now.
The emergency rooms will be filled to capacity with uninsured using er's as doctor office. Then when hospitals start closing because no money...see how the republicans act.
Not surprising that Senator Cassidy lied to Jimmy Kimmel...for heavens sake anyone watch his town halls? Senator Cassidy stood in front of his constituents and boldly lied to their faces.
As a nurse and constituent of Sen Cassidy, I'm really happy to see Jimmy Kimmel call him out on his hypocrisy. Louisiana is one of the poorest and sickest states; many people who voted for Sen Cassidy would be negatively impacted by his bill.
When did Jimmy Kimmel become the moral touchstone of America? Good for him. He's grown a lot from when he was best known for his fake feud with Matt Damon, lol.
euthanasia and abortion are two things that should be left up to the individual - i believe that govt do not have the right to legislate personal body decisions - we pay them to manage the country, not our personal lives!
euthanasia is compassion and only the greedy would want to hasten their families lives to get their money quicker - note that i didn't say 'loved ones lives' because the greedy are incapable of love!
Who are you to decide that your personal belief's outweigh someone else's choice not to suffer a horrible long death. You selfish pricks. Freedom of choice
in many coastal areas in the USA for UNHCR, the rich people own the houses overlooking the oceans and all the townspeople are taxed to pay to their erosion issues or deal with their annual flooding. a lot of people complain. but it still goes on. we have used these islands it seems forever for the tourist trade. now that they are in trouble we say abandon the island? should we also abandon Florida, Mississippi and Texas?
This could easily be the story of American coastal cities in our lifetime. We've already altered the climate and must not revert back to polluting it or it is sure to happen.
They should be seeking money from the tourist industry (airlines and hotels) who have made lots of money from those islands and the poor inhabitants who served them and still lived in poverty.
As a Berkeley graduate: Free Speech means everything the university has been doing and is trying to do. People who have nothing to do with our university violated our campus. They set fire and destroyed university property because the university embraced free speech. It is being attacked by the far left and the far right for being a prestigious academic institution that isn't afraid to get political. Antifa doesn't represent Berkeley any more than the tiki torch crowd represented UVA. Any lunatic can buy a train ticket and come on campus. UC Berkeley & its academic community were violated by these radicals and somehow simultaneous victim-blamed for the actions of people who have nothing to do with the university.
Free speech is standing in the plaza and not being silenced by the government. It's not a right to a million dollars in police protection and a safe place.
I hope U. C. Berkley makes a scholarly article out of the responses and shares it with the rest of the country so that we all know can modify our behavior to fit the feelings, preferences, and opinions of a bunch of barely out of high school teeny boppers. Come on! If you want to know what freedom of speech means, ask an old person. Then listen.
Once again, look at all the old white men trying to shove something down an unwilling America's throat. There are many things I like about Lindsay Graham, but this is all about him beginning his run for president in 2020. This legislation would just pass the ball to the states. Many of those states would fumble every move. In Texas, Abbott and Patrick would do their damnedest to kill the poor. Joe Strauss can only do so much.
enjoy your last term i. office Lindsey. You too Sanford. Voters in CHS are not stupid, as you may think, nor are the voters in SC. They will all be educated how you are giving a tax break with this repeal of ACA to give the 0.1% wealthiest Americans a $170,000 tax break after repeal. Well done you scoundrel.
We want affordable quality healthcareGive everyone the healthcare you congressmen have access to not some lousy system that makes money for insurance companies and the medical groups that lobby and support congress with their big bucks and incentives.
This is nauseating. These people are so sick. And of course Trump has legitimized so much of this with picks like Bannon, Miller, Gorka, Sessions, etc. ugh.
It's a world wide developement. The movement of new white racist is growing in Germany, Great Britain and Scandinavia as well. Far right parties are getting popular and holocaust deniers will get into German Parliament this year. 72 years after WWII the Nazis are back, stronger and more popular in the whole western hemisphere ...

This is the crap that's really going on, while Trump tries to distract with his crazy comments and tweets. The White House has been waging what amounts to a WAR ON SCIENCE, appointing people with few scientific credentials to key positions, defunding programs that could lead to a cleaner and safer environment and a healthier population, and censoring scientific inquiry that could inform the public and government policy. Trump is dismantling the EPA, HUD, Dept of Energy, Dept of Education...Destroying the country while we all focus on his constant shocking behavior and comments. Trump is very good at manipulating public opinion and distracting.
This is ANOTHER reason why the people with IQs over 100 need to get to the polls in 2018 and 2020 so we can kick all of these horrible appointees to the curb and undo all of the regulatory harm they do.
Padre nuestro que estás en el cielo, santificado sea tu nombre ,Venga a nosotros su reino,Hágase tu voluntad en la tierra como en el cielo ,Danos hoy nuestro pan de cada día,Perdonas nuestras ofensasComo también nosotros perdonamos a quien nos ofenden,No nos dejés caer en la tentación,Y líbranos del malAmen 🙏🏼
Mexican here. Thanks for your good wishes. The earthquake was terrible, there are at least, 10 collapsed buildings in Mexico City and dozens of injured and dead. There are already teams of citizens and government workers working together in order to rescue the people trapped.
Pray for us.
Deb Warren- :( "The earthquake of 7.1 magnitude hit five miles (eight km) southeast of Atencingo in the state of Puebla, at a depth of 32 miles (51 km), the US Geological Survey said.
Local media in Puebla reported that five people had died there. Puebla governor Tony Galil tweeted that several buildings in the city of Cholula had been damaged, including churches whose steeples collapsed."
It's propaganda, the way the media makes sure to include the fact that it was a white man murdering black men. Not until it says only that an American killed other Americans will we know true kinsmanship...
What is new the white supremacist police gunning down innocent black people. The Justice system are failing minorities communities. The judicial fill with right wing republican appoint destroying the right of ever day people.
Gee whiz...When will folks learn that lives are priceless and can never be replaced for all the gold on earth...Whenever we learn that fact...Our own priceless lives might change...🤔
