‘Resistance Is Working’: McConnell Forced to Delay Trumpcare Vote

Mitch McConnell’s move to delay the Trumpcare vote is viewed by many as a testament to the strength of the bill’s critics and the tenacity of its opponents. The delay was widely seen as a stunning political defeat for McConnell and a rebuke to a bill that numerous lawmakers, including Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, had referred to as a piece of “garbage” which belonged in the trash.

The Overlooked Trumpcare Threat: It’s a Medicare Time Bomb

The broken promise on Medicare is in danger of slipping by beneath the radar. Only days after the election, Speaker Paul Ryan announced that he saw an opportunity to realize his decades-long dream of destroying Medicare. He said that he planned to enact legislation as soon as possible that would end Medicare’s guaranteed benefit and replace it with voucher coupons. Ryan justified this horrible plan — destined to leave the nation’s seniors without medical care after a lifetime of work — by claiming “because of Obamacare, Medicare is going broke.” Nothing could be further from the truth. The Affordable Care Act improved Medicare’s long-term finances, by requiring the wealthiest Americans to pay somewhat more. Trumpcare repeals that increased funding.

‘This Is Not a Drill’: We Have Less Than One Week to Defeat ‘Barbaric’ Trumpcare Bill

“The Senate’s health care legislation is an especially cruel and destructive transfer of wealth to the wealthiest American’s at the expense of kids, low-income Americans, the elderly, those with disabilities, and the nearly 23 million Americans who could lose their coverage as a result of health care repeal efforts,” said MoveOn.

What the History Channel Left Out About The Declassified CIA Program: “History of MK-ULTRA”

What the History Channel Left Out About The Declassified CIA Program: “History of MK-ULTRA”

The CIA-sanctioned program [MK ULTRA] ran from the 1950s until the mid-1970s, though many believe that aspects of the program still exist today. The experiments were intended to identify drugs as well as procedures to be used in interrogations and torture in order to weaken victims and force confessions out of them through the use of mind control. Though the TV show lightly touched on the severe mental abuse participants endured, it completely left out the physical and sexual abuse involved as well as the other gruesome details of the experiments.

From Bad to Worse: The GOP Assault on the Nation’s Health and Wellbeing

The US already does not have a healthy health care system because a powerful minority will not allow it. The US health care system is a dysfunctional nexus of arrangements imposed on the rest of us by ideologues and those who profit from our health care system’s dysfunction.

3 Ways Americans Are Being Divided Today

America is being divided, and it’s all part of the plan: the plan to program humans into robots that fight, protest, and stir up verbal arguments. The media thrives on it — creating fake news, decrying fake news, and reporting with few facts and plenty of bias.

Why There Will NEVER Be A Political Solution To America’s Problems

Why There Will NEVER Be A Political Solution To America’s Problems

The truth is that the real problem lies in our hearts, and the corrupt politicians that currently represent us are simply a reflection of who we have become as a nation. The generations of people that founded this nation and established it as the greatest republic that the world had ever seen had far different values than most Americans do today. So until there is a dramatic shift in how most of us see the world, it is quite likely that not much in Washington will change.
