We’ll get today’s Left Behind Classic post up a bit later, but some news happened overnight and it might be good to have an open thread first to discuss that: “Senate rejects measure to partly repeal Affordable Care Act, dealing Trump and GOP leaders a major setback.”
President Trump and congressional Republicans suffered a dramatic failure early Friday in their bid to advance a scaled-back plan to overhaul the Affordable Care Act, raising the prospect of emergency bipartisan talks to shore up the existing health-care system. …
The GOP bill was voted down 51 to 49 — all 48 members of the Democratic caucus joined McCain and Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) to block the legislation.
But today, at least, we can take a breath and marvel that we managed to keep things from getting much, much worse. Congratulations and thank you to all of the millions who fought for that. Keep fighting.
