---------------------------

As I'm sure you all know, the House of Representatives is voting on a healthcare bill today. The particulars of the bill don't matter right now, for two reasons:

1. It may not pass, and if it does it will be close.
2. Even if it or a successor bill passes, it will then go to the Senate. Whatever comes out of that chamber will look very different, and we have no way of knowing what it might look like.

Do Burr and Tillis listen?

In a word, no.

By my count, both senators have received many thousands of calls and emails from worried constituents over the past week. Their voice mail boxes are full. And what is the result of those calls? Nothing. Both men voted to begin dismantling ACA, without even the illusion of a viable replacement plan. Of course, Trump has promised a magnificent alternative. Bigly indeed. Just like he promised Mexico would pay to build his wall.
