GOP Leaders Ready To Pivot From 'Do-Nothing' To Doing A Lot In 2017

As the 115th Congress is sworn in Tuesday, Republicans will be poised to control Washington with a stronger hand than they have in a decade — with the Senate, House and the White House in GOP hands, once President-elect Donald Trump takes office on January 20th.

This past November, Republicans held their congressional losses to a minimum, helped by an unexpectedly strong GOP wave behind Trump. After losing just two Senate seats, they'll hold a 52-48 edge (two independents caucus with Democrats. In the House, Republicans lost six seats, giving them a 241-194 majority.

When they replace Obamacare, let's hope they draft and enact a health care that is available to All Americans - meaning themselves too. No exceptions for them or staff.

I have a copy of the Republican healthcare proposal from 2007/ 8 can't post to here, but will fwd a cop[y to Joe. Makes more sense than the Den version, and is only like 219pages long, I think.], not 25000. It's simple, but not without controversy. At least it's small enough to read understand and argue.

Those idiots who claim the RNC never put anything on the table are, again, LIARS! And idiots, of course!

Thanks, Steve. Can you post it somewhere with a link to it? I, for one, would love to read it.
