On kneeling, Packers rise in the face of Trump, others going low

I understand that Donald Trump's complaints about (mostly black) NFL players kneeling during the national anthem to protest injustice is likely a misdirection play. I mean, if your last, best chance to destroy health care is going down the tubes and the Russia investigation is getting closer to your doorstep, you might try to change the subject too. But I was a sports fan well before I was into economics or politics, and I feel the intersection of these two topics is something I have to talk about.

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.
