And he could be one of the deciding votes if it goes through.
Yesterday, I dropped a copy of this letter in almost every Senate office.
When you look at the details of the Graham-Cassidy bill, it immediately becomes apparent that it isn't a real Obamcare replacement plan at all.
Who do you think changed the national zeitgeist?
The only way the Republicans can pass this and other parts of their deranged agenda is to do it in secret and in defiance of popular opinion.
Republicans screwed the pooch so now it's time for the Democrats to twist a few arms.
Medical bankruptcies haven't been a large part of the conversation. They should be.
She's far too busy bashing Democrats, attacking the media, and downplaying the investigation into Trump colluding with Russia. Doesn't that sound familiar?

They're literally killing people to make the obscenely wealthy even richer.
Hiding from the public to rush through their Obamacare repeal, Republicans spit on the idea of a free press.
20 Republican-held seats just shifted left.
Changing how people think is just as important as changing how they live.
Donald Trump has reached criminal levels of ignorance.
"For the most part, the future of the ACA is out of my hands, and all I can do is wait and see. And as the law’s future hangs in the balance, I thought it was important to tell my story about how the Affordable Care Act intersected with my own life. Now that I’ve done that, I only have one more thing to say:Thank you, President Obama. From the bottom of my heart, thank you."
There is no Obamacare replacement and you will lose your healthcare if Republicans repeal it.
The senator's response was absolutely perfect.
The New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof for the win.
Trump is promising to get rid of Obamacare on "day one", but getting rid of health care for millions of Americans with no plan to replace it with will be close to impossible.
Taking away healthcare from millions of people sounds great when someone else is in charge...
This is the most disgusting political tactic we've seen so far.
With Tom Price as HHS Secretary, Republicans will strip millions of people of their healthcare in order to ease their "economic anxiety"
It is likely Palin doesn't actually understand what she is saying here, but if she does, she deserves a special place in hell for spreading one of the worst right wing lies in decades.
According to conservatives, Obamacare has been an unmitigated disaster. Except of course, it hasn't.
Brown, who says he has voted Republican his entire life, was extremely critical of President Obama, and in particular the Affordable Care Act (ACA). That all changed when Brown was able to get treatment for a life threatening autoimmune disease through the ACA.
While impossible to predict the nature of the 2016 Presidential election, we can be sure it won't be a battle of ideas. Because one side categorically doesn't have any.
Indeed nearly everything Cruz has said about the law has been evaluated by both FactCheck.org and Politifact as being, at best, mostly false.
If this theory is accurate, it's difficult to point to another chapter in history when major billion-dollar corporations decided they didn't like a president or his policies and therefore manipulated the lives of workers in order to push back against the White House.
It's totally bizarre that Jonathan Turley fails to see the constitutional problems commensurate with one branch of government suing another branch.
The Supreme Court announced today its decision to hear the case of King v. Burwell, which challenges the Affordable Care Act's insurance subsidies, claiming that the law doesn't explicitly define the federal government's role in offering premium assistance to roughly five million lower income families.
The contradictory rulings make it even more likely that the Affordable Care Act will go before the Supreme Court once again.
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) has filed a lawsuit against the Obama administration because of this so-called Obamacare exemption that doesn't exist.
Instead of slut-shaming Sandra Fluke and other women for wanting affordable, safe contraception included in their health insurance policies in the same way men are covered for vasectomies and the like, Limbaugh attacked men for a change.
No wonder women are pissed off. It's a reaction that The Five's Eric Bolling and Greg Gutfeld don't understand, partly because they likely have Cadillac insurance plans paid for by NewsCorp, but also because they're misogynists.
Fox News Channel and the conservative entertainment complex continued throughout the day Monday to repeat the lie that Hobby Lobby and other small businesses with religious owners were being forced by evil Obama to pay for abortion pills.
Rove: "What they objected to were three drugs, and one device that were designed to end a pregnancy -- to terminate a pregnancy. Morning after pills, for example." This is grotesquely false.
Simply put: none of the drugs covered by the ACA are abortion-inducing pills of any kind. NONE!
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, fighting for his political life, is using some generous handfuls of slippery petroleum jelly, normally reserved to moisten his subterranean nearly-translucent epidermis, in order to dodge his way around Obamacare.
Bibles? Firearms? Blah people? Nope, nope and nope. Better.
The Republicans are so maniacal about blocking the very popular expansion of Medicaid, they're each lining up to sign recently passed legislation that would block future Democratic governors from expanding Medicaid without the approval of the solidly GOP state legislatures in each state.
Caught in the day-to-day hubbub of the news cycle, we somehow missed an op/ed from several days ago that's packed wall-to-wall with lies and misinformation about Obamacare. Naturally, it was co-authored by a prominent tea party Republican, along with a senatorial candidate from Nebraska, and published in the very dubious Washington Examiner.
Congress, with plenty of Republican support, passed H.R. 4302 "Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014," or what's known as the "doc fix," which eliminated an impending cut on Medicare reimbursements to doctors. Contained within that legislation was an amendment altering the Obamacare deductible cap on group health insurance policies, making it easier for small businesses to afford to cover employees by offering higher deductible, lower premium coverage.
Today's survey shows that the rate of uninsured Americans fell from 18 percent at the end of the third quarter of 2013 to 15.6 percent for the first quarter of 2014. That means about seven-and-a-half million people, slightly more than the number of enrollments reported by the Obama administration last week, but well short of what you might expect when you factor in the Medicaid expansion, which HHS says has increased Medicaid enrollment by more than 3 million.
I spent several hours of my Saturday debating conservatives about Obamacare on Facebook. It turned out to be a case study in both the efficacy of Republican and Fox News misinformation, but also in just how fantastically pissed off some people are about the idea of a law that helps Americans to acquire affordable healthcare.
Hobby Lobby, which is suing the federal government over Obamacare's mandary contraception coverage, offers its employees a 401(k) retirement plan that happens invest $73 million in pharmaceutical companies that develop and produce various forms of contraception. And that's not all...
