|Ailing Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) comes from the hospital to support a discussion to take the Affordable Care Act.|
For those who are new to World News Today, I want to say thank you for reading once again. We appreciate your support and love to hear feedback from you by commenting at the bottom.
Tell us what you think about the issues that we discuss. In these polarizing times, a rational discussion is not likely happening here or anyplace.
We expect someone to reply in negative fashion. We are not worried about them.
We will continue to talk about issues that face our community, the government and the mainstream media. One of the issues we're facing is the possibility of Congress repealing the Affordable Care Act. It could throw millions of Americans off insurance coverage.
Protesters chanted "Kill The Bill" and "Shame" at the Senate. The Capitol Police removed the protesters from the chambers.
The Republicans already trying to take funding away from the law making insurers drop coverage from the ACA Marketplace Exchange.
And it seems like the Republicans are getting closer and closer to repealing the Affordable Care Act. They brought John McCain, the Republican senator from Arizona out of the hospital to get the ball rolling on discussions on how to repeal Obamacare.
McCain was the 50th vote and Mike Pence was the deciding factor to getting the ball rolling.
McCain and Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) get the best quality healthcare in the nation and yet they want to take away healthcare from millions. Scalise is still recovering from his gunshot wounds in June after a terrorist attacked the Republicans who participated in a charity softball game.
McCain has stage 3 cancer. The ailing lawmaker and former presidential candidate has brain cancer and acknowledge that he will come back if treatment is successful.
The ridiculousness of the Republican Party.
Their promise to repeal the healthcare law is very unpopular. For one thing, they don't know what they're repealing. The don't have Democratic support on any measure. The Senate can only lose three members. So far, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) are against the measure. Paul wants a full repeal with no replacement. Collins wants to make sure Medicaid and Planned Parenthood continue to receive funding.
It will take a least five members to sink the bill.
I don't know what their real plan is to actually fix it. The healthcare replacement is not even reasonable. Americans off of health insurance and no actual plan could spell trouble for the Republicans.
Republicans are cautiously optimistic that they can get Trumpcare through.
The inept leader Donald J. Trump is fumed at Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) for not getting on board with the "Repeal and Delay" strategy.
To be blunt with you, "Make America Great Again" is nothing more than keeping the poor "poorer", the middle class, "poor" and the well-off, "willing to destroy all of us."
Here's John McCain's speech. The old coot speaks about "bipartisanship" while slamming the bombastic voices of the television, radio, and internet. He also urges the Senate to work for the people.
"Yeah, fix that dang fence!" - McCain in 2010. He said that he would play dirty to just win. Yeah, his failed presidential candidacies in 2000 and 2008.
I am assuming that the ones who are bombastic the inept leader Donald J. Trump, Sean "Softball" Hannity, old fart Rush Limbaugh, internet creeper Matt Drudge and kookspiracy nut Alex Jones.
Or even his friend Sarah Palin or his old rival Kelli Ward.
But I know that their rhetoric has caused some form of controversy.
Trevor Noah, take it away!
