    If we can afford the amount of money for defense that was authorized we can afford Medicare for all.

    Stop the Graham-Cassidy bill that would kick 32 million Americans off of health insurance!

    Stop Graham-Cassidy repeal-replace action. America deserves better! Middle class America must not sacrifice to give the 1% a tax break, as much as Ryan and McConnell try to lie, we know that's what it's all about!

    Graham-Cassidy bill is another horrible and morally repugnant attempt to dismantle the ACA. As a bankruptcy practitioner, I should be cheering you on because my business will increase. However, as a citizen of the country who actually cares about my friends, family and clients, I can't focus on my own self-interest over those I know and love. This is about a basic human need for care and having access no matter your current financial situation. This is life or death. The ACA needs improvement not destruction. It is already being undermined and is on the path to failure. Get in there and fix it, support it and support the citizens in your district whether or not they are the ones giving you campaign donations or voting for you.

    I have recommended this site to so many people telling them how neutral this site is. I don't know who's idea it was to make Countable another leftist propaganda tool but, I'm going to uninstall this app and make sure everyone i know understands this has turned into a cradle for elitists to tell each other how correct they are without 1 second of research. Since I'm not a part of your echo chamber, I sadly say goodbye to the newest member of the Democratic propaganda machine, Countable. By the way, when you say We the People remember HALF OF THE POPULATION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA VOTED FOR TRUMP. Just because you can't see us from your thrown, doesn't mean we're not here. You just don’t know, nor do you care, to see the other side.

    It appears that the GOP continues its goal of widening economic division among US citizens. It is also apparent that they place their party and power of all government branches BEFORE their morality, before what's in the citizens best interest and before the Constitution. Our fore fathers envisioned three branches of government in order to protect citizens from a authoritarian regime. It is meant to be a bipartisan government...up until now. The GOP no longer stands for small government and federalism when they continually pass legislation that forces ALL citizens to live their lives as the GOP sees fit. They chip away at any freedom of choice we have. They cater to the 64 million who voted for Trump instead of representing ALL citizens. Trump being a republican made many campaign promises and Congress intends to fulfill those promises even if the remainder of citizens do not want these changes, just as long as Trumps base is happy. GOP=Greed Over People. GOP has no MORAL COMPASS. GOP=
