We’ve shown them what resistance looks like. Now let’s show them what war looks like.

This afternoon, at about 2:20, our members of Congress voted 217 to 213 to repeal Obamacare and replace it with something that would take health care from over 24 million Americans, cut Medicaid by $840 billion, severely scale back protections for people with preexisting conditions, and any number of other horrible things.
