I am hoping The Atlantic will do an article on these folks a year after the GOP deathcare plan takes effect.

I really hope McConnell brings the AHCA to a floor vote and they get Republican senators on the record voting for this bill. The bill has less than 40% support in every single state. We are talking about 26% support in Montana and 27% in Louisiana.

Apparently, they cannot pass the bill with 50 votes (under budget reconciliation rules) if they have a provision barring abortion coverage. So senators will have to choose between voting for or against a bill that allows abortion coverage but kills Obamacare. I am just enjoying the show at this point.
