I just saw this go by on another news feed, cant tell if it really is actually happening right now because the article isn't exactly dated, but thought id post it just in case it is true. The LIVE FEED does appear to be working though. ( Just a side thought.) Wonder if it has anything to do with phones and internet down???

Some snips from article:


Democrats have just taken over the Senate. They are going to speak non-stop all night on the Senate floor in an attempt to stop Republicans and the Trump administration from taking away health insurance for more than 23 million Americans.



Despite the all night marathon, Democrats also plan on blocking routine business matters. They aren’t playing around anymore. And, there’s good news, too. Republicans have very little room in order to swing a simple majority vote – they can only lose two of their party members’ if no Democrats join their cause to help pass Trumpcare.



Senator Chuck Schumer kicked off the session with a blistering attack on the GOP for attempting to pass Trumpcare in secret. So far, they have held virtually no public hearings on the matter, and have refused to allow their Democratic colleagues any access to the language in the bill.


There is obviously more to the article which can BE READ HERE:

As I mentioned above there is also a live feed of it going on as well at the above link.

ETA: It has been pointed out to me that this has already been posted. My fault for missing that, but all I have done here is post the fact it is happening now and also the fact if anyone wishes to watch it there is a live feed at the link. I did not post my personal opinions on any of it one way or the other. The title is from the article and not mine. I will also continue to keep my own opinions to myself. I just posted for those that may be interested in the now ongoing proceedings. Thanks.

"take away health insurance."

Just pondering the ramifications of that should make anyone who pays their own way smile.

Do people understand that health care is so expensive because of government/insurance/big pharma's actions?

Let's just be clear ... This is the RINOs playing the JackAss game.

If people cared about America, if they cared about healthcare, if they cared about you and me, if they wanted 'fair' ... there would be no REPLACE ... just a lot of REPEAL.

It isnt even that bad, they can't stop everything, more so a slow down.
The liberal media I keep an eye on is MSN.com and they qoute this is more so to draw attention to the matter.

You know, if this GOP healthcare thing is going to be so, so great ... with so much "winning" and a "yuge" deal ...

You'd think they'd at least have some conversations on it, debate it or something.

The fact is...they went back and forth about the ACA for months and months. This nonsense?

All done in secret.

Generally deals and plans drawn up in secret are done so for a reason, and it's usually not because its full of fun surprises for the American public.

Did anyone tell these democrats that Obamacare is a miserable failure that is about to collapse on its own?

Anyone wanna take bets how long it takes one of these dems to blame Russia for the Obamacare repeal tonight?

That is the way the Democrats rolled when they forced ObamaCare down everyone's throat, in the dead of night, ink still fresh, nobody but party donors and their lawyers knew what was in it. They lost seats ever since.

You're f***king kidding me, right?

Saving us?

Assholes created the monster that is the ACA in the first place.

Cut the infection out.

23 million people can lose insurance for a few months... Lord knows that many times that got royally screwed for years because of this monster, self included.

Another thread where we get to see supposed anti-fascist liberals all act like real fascism (Obamacare) must be defended at all costs.

Why do they want to read the bill?
They had to pass the last one to see what was in it . so what's the big deal this time?
Congress has become a place full of people who act like they belong in elementary school .
JFC...just grow up and represent the people by doing your jobs ,sit down and talk about things and work something out dammit!

"Democrats Raid The Senate Floor To Stop GOP And Save Healthcare For 23 Million"

Who's going to save those 23 million from the collapse of Obamacare?

Not one Republican voted for the Obamacare disaster. Why should they fix it, especially when pretty much ALL those 23 million on taxpayer-funded healthcare vote liberal?

Screw 'em!

Let Obamacare collapse and teach the country a good lesson in what happens when liberal are in charge.

Yeah, but at least congress was able to debate it and discuss it for over a year first.

Besides, the entire Pelosi thing wasn't the entire quote, it was edited to give conservatives what they wanted to hear.

That's what Medicaid is for...

No one will lose insurance for even one day if they don't want to!
