THIS IS HOW PROUD RIGHT-WINGERS ARE OF THE REPUBLICAN HEALTH CARE BILL

Steve M. at No More Mister Nice Blog - 16 hours ago
Overturning Obamacare is by far the most significant thing congressional Republicans and President Trump have tried to do this year. We're frequently told that this is a high priority for GOP elected officials because every Republican ran on repealing and replacing Obamacare, and base voters will punish Republican elected officials if they don't make good on this promise. So you'd think the repeal effort would be front-page news on right-wing sites. In fact, it's barely visible on those sites. Here's the current front page at FoxNews.com.
