And apparently, that marked the start of the GOP’s “war against the elderly”...according to Shmuck Shumer.

Huh? The Dems are the ones with the death panels who keep raiding social security.

I don’t know much about Price other than he is also an MD and he’s expected to be a yuge help in taking Obamacare apart. It’s such a complex monstrosity, its tentacles run far and deep.

And Trump picked him, so he must be excellent.

I have been researching him quite a bit and I like him a lot. I was very concerned that Murray was going to derail his nomination and I am ecstatic that she didn’t. This was a big win for the healthcare industry which has gotten its ass kicked by Obamacare over the past several years. This was a big win for us.

I agree and believe the speed of the destruction of Obamacare will increase rapidly now that Price is on board.

The special election for his replacement will now get going full bore locally. For those unfamiliar, this is Newt’s old GA 6th District.

Reading the Faux Snooze article, it could have been written by NY Slimes or the ComPost. Much maligning of Pres. Trump?

Who gives a #### what he says.

Party line votes are GREAT things these days :)

McLame, Linda and Mitch are idiots and maybe worse, but at least they vote R the majority of the time.

That’s why we can never vote for a dem senator or stay home because we don’t like the winner of the primary.

Or AT LEAST when we have a president we love who needs the majority.

Under, romney, don’t know how much it would have mattered.

All Congress has to do is end the subsidies for health insurance and the insurance companies and Obamacare dies overnight.

Interesting in that article quotes 3 Democrats 0 Republicans. Good job Faux News. Now go pound sand again.

“This is the first vote in the dismantling of the Affordable Care Act,” Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., said

"The Republicans launch their first assault in their war on seniors," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said

"He seems to have no higher priority than to terminate health coverage for millions of people," said Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H

I think it is about time for the DoJ to investigate Schumer’s donations to the Clinton Foundation.

Dr. Price offered at least four bills to the House to over throw obozo care. Ryan and Bonehead buried them

F___ News pushing the ‘rat/establishment line again?

Nothing new.

The whole bunch thinks Trump (and we) are back on our heels with that comic book decision out of the 9th circus and they’ll be in that mode until they get beotchslapped out of it.

I’d expect something out of the WH, DOJ or Homeland Security just about any time now.

....followed by a great wailing and gnashing of teeth.

ALL the votes will be along party lines and there will be no exceptions, so just invoke the nuclear option now and get it over.

Party-line vote?

Someone needs to remind the Dems of their previous urging that we all come together and make government work

They seem to have forgotten that oft-repeated and lofty position (only when there's a Democrat in the WH, of course).

There are only two things I'm reminding 'rats (as well as GOPe types) about lately:

1) You were sent to Washington to represent me and mine, even if we didn't vote for or donate to you.

2) Your current position is precisely the same as a back seat full of rowdy kids on a road trip when the driver says, "Don't Make Me Come Back There."
