In a last ditch effort to satisfy their donors, Republicans attempt to kill the ACA and transfer billions of dollars to America’s super-rich by calling it a “middle class tax cut”

Remember how, this past summer, we all came together, fought like hell, and killed the Republican health care plan that would have robbed some 22 million Americans of their coverage?

Calling the recent child molestation accusations a “desperate political attack,” far-right Christian folk hero Roy Moore assures his supporters that he’ll continue his run for Senate

Hoping to kill Obamacare before Trump’s inevitable impeachment, Senate Republicans set out on a dark path, refusing to show the American people the legislation that will rob millions of their health care before it’s brought to a vote

Word is, by the end of the month, Senate Republicans will move to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare.
