    I am encouraging Murkowski to stand strong against these horrible ideas and plans. She has been measured and conservative in her approach. Senator Dan Sullivan wants to run for president do he is a party man.

    I think they could pass it, I hope I'm wrong.

    It is just more of the same old junk they tried to pass earlier in the summer.

    And of course, it appeals to conservatives because it take the "Federal" government out of healthcare, and gives more power to the states via block grants.

    What a stupid idea.

    Enough said.

    So Jimmy Kimmel has now spoken out a third time against Graham-Cassidy and Senator Cassidy, and I say, good on him. They are trying to discredit him, and he is pointing out that experts on health care like the AMA and the American Cancer Society are against this stupid bill.

    And John McCain has said he can't support it. Now we need Lisa Murkowski to resist the bribe of allowing Alaska to be the only state to keep Mediaid, and this mess will go down in flames.

    But I'm not holding my breath, because there is big money from lobbyists whispering sweet nothings in senatorial ears.

    Hello All -
    Looks like the latest attempt to shore up the extremely flawed U.S. "health" "care" system is about to fail.
    I called upon my U.S. senators to co-sponsor Sen. Bernie Sanders' recently introduced Medicare For All Act 2017. It would ensure all Americans are "in", nobody out. Once the stressor of access to health care is removed, we can begin to realize a healthier population. We nurses can look at all the other variables that affect local health and wellbeing in our communities, i.e. the food and water supply, environmental toxins, etc. We are on the front line and can make a difference!
