    Trump White House promotes "Made in America Week"; goes about how you'd expect.

    I'm worried we're stuck with Republican rule indefinitely from here on out, and that includes Trump winning a second term no matter how unpopular he is.

    A reminder that there wouldn't be a chance of this getting passed in Clinton was elected.

    Or knowing him, he'd probably be able to get Heller back on board and use McCain's death to his advantage. He might look like a turtle, McConnell has always been a weasel at heart.

    It's just been introduced to the house...I keep saying to myself. Over and over.

    Future edit: Actually wait, I've seen bills like this before, but forgot. A bill like this being introduced really isn't a sign that it'll pass.

    Republican Chris Smith tries to introduce a bill to literally, literally ban all abortion in the U.S every now and again. It never goes anywhere.

    The whole Russia thing has literally had me eject my brain out of my head because it got so confused that it can't fantom this entire shit. But I'm serious, why can't they not just resolve this case? If they keep it up, Trump would likely garner sympathy from his fans then harming him without gathering any soild evidence of Trump dealings to hurt him. I do believe that the Democrats are doing not much about his dealings.

    There's not a whole lot that can be done with the GOP in control of Congress. Democrats can keep up the pressure but, without a change in the Senate and House, it's up to the Republicans to do anything right now.

    Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Marc Kasowitz had to apologize for demonstrating why he is the ideal representative for the President too strongly.

    The only one to come close to this level of unpopularity is Gerald Ford.. and that was after several years of Watergate and pardoning Nixon.

    A note warning Sen.*Dean Heller*(R-Nev.) to vote against the GOP healthcare bill was taped to the door of the his district office on Sunday, according to Monday reports, saying that the author would lose their life if the reform legislation passes - and so would Heller.

    The Nevada Independent reported the note told Heller that the individual would lose his healthcare should the senator vote for the GOP legislation to repeal and replace ObamaCare, and that the writer, and Heller, would die as a result.

    The Independent said*previous reports*that the senator's office had been broken into were incorrect, but that the individual in question unlawfully entered the federal building.

    Four Republicans block Obamacare repeal bill in Senate
    Moran and Lee are the latest to say they won't let this version of the bill move to the Senate floor.

    Rejoice. Once again the Republican Party in general, and the Tea Party in particular, have saved Obamacare!

    You'd like to think that this signals a flicker of morality on us part of the GOP. Sadly, it means some GOP senators don't think the bill is cruel enough. It doesn't make enough cuts.

    What the hell.

    At least its down for now, but I'm sure it'll rear it's head again eventually.

    Now, about the destruction of Net Neutrality they're trying to sneak by...
