GottaLaff joins us every Tuesday to talk about the news of the week. Today, we spent a lot of time discussing the Republican health care repeal and replace bill that no one except the 10-13 Republican men who are working on it has seen.
I shared Greg Sargent’s Morning Plum Line blog today, which gives the latest…
We already knew that Senate Republicans were going to try to ram through their health-care bill by resorting to a scandalously secretive, absurdly compressed process. But now we have the details: According to the Wall Street Journal, the text of the bill will be released this Thursday; the Congressional Budget Office will release a score of the bill next Monday or Tuesday; and the Senate may well vote on it next Thursday.
Unfortunately, there are signs this morning that the Republican strategy is already working precisely as intended.
What we can do now is call, call and call our senators and urge them not to rush into anything. The congressional switchboard number is 202-224-3121. Call your senators now.
