    Idaho Republican Rep. Raul Labrador sparked outrage from his audience and online after saying "nobody dies" for lack of health care access in a town hall Friday night at Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston, Idaho. Labrador made the comments the day after the U.S. House passed a GOP-led health care bill repealing and replacing chunks of Obamacare. Labrador, a member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, was responding to an audience member who expressed concern about how the bill would affect Medicaid recipients. "You are mandating people on Medicaid accept dying. You are making a mandate that will kill people,"...

    Idaho 1st District Congressman Raul Labrador, who will be going to the national GOP convention in Cleveland as a Ted Cruz delegate, called today for Donald Trump to choose Cruz as his running mate. Labrador said that would take “the two guys who got about 70 percent of the votes in just about every primary, every caucus … and bring the team together. That would be historic, it would be something akin to what Abraham Lincoln did when he brought a team of rivals together.” Labrador, who spoke during a monthly “Conversations with Conservatives” Q-and-A session with Washington, D.C. reporters...

    Great news that Boner is resigning. I hear nonsense that McCarthy is next. That cannot happen. Mark Meadows did a lot to begin this back in August. He set the ball rolling. Does he want to be speaker? If so, we are obliged to support him. I remember Raul Labrador made noises that he would run for Speaker. Is he a good one to support if Meadows does not want the job? This post is to solicit informed input from Freepers who are much more knowledgeable than me. It cannot be McCarthy or we have just hit re-set.

    ... two leading congressional conservatives -- founding members of the House Freedom Caucus -- say the GOP’s current leadership leaves something to be desired. “It's been average,” Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, told “Power Players.” “I don't think we've done a great job of following the promises that we made. I think we've done some good things, and we've done some not so great things. But what's really lacking is a vision for the future of America.” In the interview, fellow Freedom Caucus chairman, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, agreed with Labrador's grade for the accomplishments of the GOP-controlled House so far:...

    The Labrador Retriever has been revealed as the nation's favorite dog for the 24th consecutive year. The American Kennel Club, which released its annual rankings on Thursday, praised the breed for being 'intelligent' and 'family friendly'. Despite its supremacy, bulldogs hit a new high at number four and their bat-eared cousins, French bulldogs, sauntered into the top ten for the first time in nearly a century. The AKC notes that bulldogs make 'excellent family companions with a natural tendency to form strong bonds with children, an easy-to-care-for coat, and minimal exercise requirements.'
