Republicans plan massive beer bash as they take healthcare away from women, the disabled and the poor

Published

Republicans on Thursday passed legislation that would rip away health care from an estimated 24 million Americans — and they plan to celebrate it with a massive keg party.

Vice News’ Alexandra Jaffe reports that large quantities of beer are being wheeled into the Capitol building in anticipation of the House of Representatives passing the American Health Care Act on Thursday afternoon.

“Cases upon cases of beer just rolled into the Capitol on a cart covered in a sheet,” she writes on Twitter. “Spotted Bud Light peeking out from the sheet.”

House Republicans are also reportedly heading over to the White House to celebrate the vote after passing the AHCA.

Earlier this year, House Speaker Paul Ryan told National Review editor Rich Lowry that he has been “dreaming” of capping Medicaid expenses ever since he and Lowry “were drinking at a keg” in college. Ryan said on Thursday ahead of the vote that he had been eagerly waiting for seven years to cast his vote in favor of a bill that is expected to deprive 24 million people of their insurance.

In a muddled, dishonest, rambling news conference from the White House press briefing room, President Donald Trump for over an hour talked to reporters Wednesday evening about coronavirus in an attempt to stave off three days of market near-collapse. He lied. He twisted the truth. He displayed little grasp of basic facts. He didn’t let the experts run the show.

He instilled no confidence Wednesday night. In fact, the DOW futures dropped as Trump began speaking:

Published

President Donald Trump's psychological problems are getting worse and could be consequential as America faces a potential COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell on Thursday interviewed Dr. Lance Dodes, a former assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.

"As you pointed out, Lawrence, this man is about himself. He really is not about the country, he's not about public health," Dr. Dodes said of Trump.

"Although he has already severely damaged the country by being a psychopath or sociopath -- in many ways, he's damaged democracy -- I think people's lives will be lost now," he warned. "Individual lives will be lost because of the way he's mishandling the coronavirus issue."

As the 2020 presidential campaign cycle grinds on, there’s renewed concern about the 21st century’s newest form of warfare: cyber-sabotage of government systems, including elections and online disinformation intended to incite unrest. But as Suppressed: The Fight to Vote, a documentary from Brave New Films, makes clear, partisan voter suppression tactics with 20th-century roots remain and can thwart multitudes of voters from changing their state’s political leaders.
