More on Senator Capito and Trumpcare

Capito apparently will abandon Medicaid (her only disagreement with her party is how long this will take)

Reading more on the senate health care proposal

It's being worked out in secret and it appears that it will be pushed through with little or no debate. Here is what Sarah Kliff at VoxCare wrote late yesterday:

Behind closed doors, Senate Republicans have worked out a path toward Obamacare repeal. The plans under . . .

Congressman McKinley is on a two-week recess

But I can't seem to find a list of his scheduled town hall meetings

I'm sure I'm just looking in the wrong places but I've seen nothing about a McKinley town hall meeting -- not even on his website.

The locals continue to lie about health care

A sign of desperation?

Two more days worth of editorials in the Wheeling News-Register demonstrates that last week's attack upon Obamacare's popularity was just the beginning of our local papers' repeal efforts. So desperate are they to see Obamacare ended that they are clearly willing to lie about its passage and how it relates to the current . . .

Blame Obama and provide no evidence

The News-Register returns to its old editorial ways

Silvrback blog image

Like West Virginia's Republican legislative delegation, our local "newspapers" are better off out of power where they can criticize and criticize knowing that they don't have to be responsible. Now that Republicans are in the majority on both the state and national level, they're expected to govern. That's . . .

The repeal of Obamacare and West Virginia

Effects and possible solutions

How would repealing Obamacare affect West Virginia?

Here are the key findings from the West Virginia Center on Budget and Policy report released earlier this week:
