No CBO score, meaning no real idea what the fiscal impact will be. No real debate on the new bill including the Cruz amendment which many industry groups have said would create "junk insurance." An administration that doesn't even really have a clue about the bill, yet will be stuck trying to figure out how to make it work. This is the government that will MAGA? Probably not one single right winger in here who can even tell me the real details of the bill.

Hey Mitch, why can't you take NO for an answer? We don't want your garbage TRUMPCARE. Here's a thought - require ALL republican congressmen to have TRUMPCARE for 2 years first. THEN let's see how many vote for it.

The Senate healthcare bill has collapsed. Two senators have decided to vote no, dooming any prospect of this disaster of a bill making it to the floor for passage. McConnell can try his procedural vote, but it will be a major setback for him and the president.

Yet another Trump failure.

Yawn.

Very disturbing that the Trump regime was able to silence an otherwise non-partisan CBO. Clearly, CBO's assessment would tank claims the 'BCA' wouldn't result in millions of recipients losing coverage. Very, very troubling.
