"The women did the heavy lifting, the man got all the credit, or, how the Republican repeal failed"

Daily Kos nails it.  Even when female senators Collins and Murkowski are the main ones who saved the Affordable Healthcare Act, a man gets the lion's share of the credit.

Not to mention that Senator Mazie Hirono of Hawaii, who has Stage Four kidney cancer — that means scarce chances of survival — is recovering from a second surgery to remove part of a rib, and made sure she got to her seat in the Senate Chamber to vote “no", but got little media attention.  ". . . you’ll only find out about it on social media.  Because she’s not a pale male, maybe?"

Let's hope that reasonable people can come up with improvements to healthcare.

But first, they'll have to convince unreasonable people not to sabotage Obamacare and ensure its failure.

This fight isn't over yet.  :(   Stay tuned.

I have seldom felt so negatively about someone as I do about Trump. And now, he's holding people's health hostage. And is it not terrible that a person with a vulgar mouth like Scaramucci receives no condemnation from the president for his language?
Will General Kelly be able wrest control and bring some semblance of organization?
