As CBO Analysis Looms, Activists Target Moderates on Healthcare Bill

Julia Conley

The Congressional Budget Office is expected to throw a wrench in the plans of Senate Republicans Monday afternoon when it releases its analysis of the healthcare bill that was introduced last week.

Budget analysts polled by Politico are estimating that 15 million to 22 million Americans would lose health coverage over the next decade, should the bill pass.

And the next order of business in the WH is for the diabolical despot to try and craft another executive order (with the "expert" legal advice of his barristers/paid patronizing putzes) to try and do away with the director of the CBO and the office itself. Just another obstacle to the emperor and his cabal's overthrow of our government and decimation of our democracy.

Good news is only congress can dump the CBO. Bad news is McConnell will change the rules to suit his needs if he can.

Yeah, "moderate republicans". What a joke. I guess that Hitler was a "moderate" compared to Himmler. What a fucking, cruel joke.

Thank you for the clarification. My comment was tongue-in-cheek with a jab at the competency of his legal team and their knowledge of how the system of checks and balances (such as it is at present) works.

They only feign being "moderates" when they are looking to be re-elected. It sure isn't due to having a conscience.
