Paul Ryan objects to key CBO claim, but here’s why he’s still wrong

From Political Heat

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is having a tough time selling his healthcare proposal. 

That’s because the recent Congressional Budget Office (CBO) scoring of the bill, officially titled the American Health Care Act, would leave 14 million additional individuals out of insurance coverage by 2018. That number increases to 24 million by 2026. 

TrumpCare Republicans know more than Medical Providers, Doctors, Hospital CEO's and Insurers!!!

Why didn't Democrats toss off tea party protesters as paid off lackey's of the Koch brothers who opposed the Affordable Care Act? 
Why didn't Democrats brush off complaints about climate change as the last gasps of industry special interests willing to say anything? 
Democrats never denounce anything or predict failure and disaster over pending Republican legislation. It actually gives everyone the impression Republicans have a legitimate argument to make.

Sorry, Charlie

Today, for some reason I have not fathomed, Charlie Sykes was allowed column inches in the New York Times)I would offer a link but he has had enough attention, but we will dissect it).  Sykes is on a "mea culpa" tour where he is trying to rewrite history, where he does not play a part. 

Senator Baldwin Smacks Down Scott Walker

Jake Weighs In:

US Sen. Tammy Baldwin announced her opposition this week to Donald Trump’s nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, based on Gursuch’s dislike of reproductive rights and preference for corporate power over the power of the individual.

What followed is what happens when a mediocre white male college dropout tried to get into a battle of wits with Baldwin, a graduate of UW Law School.
