Today is designated the “Day Without A Woman”, but it’s a day no one is calling off, everyone is finding a way to stand up. David Waldman discusses how to walk the walk, without stepping on any rakes today. Donald P. Trump has tremendous respect for women.

Greg Dworkin joins just about everyone in not supporting the Unaffordable TrumpDoesn’tCare Act.  Key players are staking out their positions, but their decision making process isn’t based on the bill actually working, it’s what lies they can sell, and how fast they can sell them. Paul Ryan loves the plan, but Donald owns it. Pro-Trump media is already turning against it, the AMA opposes it, maybe the House can blame the Senate?

Joan McCarter agrees, Trumpcare is bad. Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell want to ram Trumpcare through, and are willing to tell anyone anything. Confusion reigns throughout Republican leadership, with Republicans like Jason Chaffetz believing chemotherapy and and an iPhone cost about the same, because when was the last time they looked at a receipt? Four Republican Senators have figured some things out, and tell McConnell to save the Medicaid expansion. Most understand that insurance just isn’t the goal.

Donald’s attention moves on from Trumpcare, back to Mar-a-Lago, where he spends about 1/3 of the time, and to Benghazing his wiretapping BS. While down there, he can meet with “Big Candy” and, of course, the Russians, who you’d think would be too busy meeting with the NRA in Moscow. Hired jerks, such as Bosis Epshteyn can handle things in DC.

Meanwhile, an Iowa Republican wants universities to ask prospective professors who they vote for. A North Carolina bill tightens the screws on protesters, calling them “economic terrorists”.

With all of the rumors on Republican digital superiority, the Democrats reveal their digital plans. Take this fun personal dialect quiz, so the network tracing you can better pinpoint their drone strikes!
