Kinda busy right now with family stuff but HOLY FUCK! the Republicans are rising from the ashes of their poisonous attempt to repeal Obamacare to do what…try it all again! This time, when nobody is looking; when we have hurricanes and earth quakes and raging fires… in other words, when the world is caught up with an unimaginable cornucopia of crises, they are trying to screw millions of Americans out of their heath care. Repeal Obamacare, virtually in the dark, hidden behind the news of the day. They are cowards and they need to make a choice; are they going to be Americans or are they going to be Republicans. They need to chose right now or destroy what’s left of our very fragile democracy.

I cannot say it any better than this:

It is not an exaggeration to say that Cassidy-Graham might be the most radioactive piece of legislation ever to be entertained by a governing majority in the United States. Like its predecessors, Cassidy-Graham would end ObamaCare's Medicaid expansion and roll back health care for millions of poor people. It would block grant insurance subsidies to the states, who could apply for waivers to key ObamaCare provisions like the requirement to cover people with pre-existing conditions, and create special funds just for the already-sick.
This proposal — quarantining the ill and the suffering in high-risk pools — is insanely evil, tremendously unpopular, and unworkable as a policy idea. The implications of this legislation are clear: It will throw millions out of the insurance system and gut critical Medicaid services. Any cost savings will be realized by either killing people or making sure they never see a doctor in the first place. But when millions of the uninsured start showing up in ER rooms again with illnesses they could have treated earlier, costing taxpayers billions and driving the cost curve back up to what it was before the Affordable Care Act was passed, Republican elites will realize they achieved nothing other than inflicting avoidable suffering on innocent people while turning the country decisively against them.

The West magazine via Daily Kos

Indivisible made a commitment to being open to work with any party to advance democracy and the well being of everybody, including Republicans. And look at what’s happened. Our collective guard dropped. We believed that millions of people health care had been saved. We were wrong. But is isn’t over yet. I hope that the Indivisible movement will act as the point of the spear against this onslaught; that women and men of good faith will rise up against this again; that Americans who care will rise up; that people with courage and honor, will rise up; that as a country, we rise up to meet this challenge yet again.
We must rise up and ask this question: Are you first a Republican or an American?

Right now, you can’t be both.
