Dems think midterms is a good time to fight GOP on health care so they are forcing a vote

Health care is pretty far down the list of concerns to most Americans.

Senate Democrats led by Wisconsin Sen. Tammy Baldwin think they have a new talking point against Republicans on health care ahead of the November midterm elections.

The Democrats are forcing a vote on overturning a new rule allowing short-term health insurance plans that the Trump administration has supported. The measure will likely fail, but it gives Democrats a chance to say their Republican counterparts voted against coverage for Americans with pre-existing conditions since some of the short-term plans would exclude them.

  1. Health care is pretty far down the list of concerns to most Americans.

    Really? I seem to recall, back during that 2016 contest, that the top issue Trump rode on was The Wall (synecdoche for all border and citizenship issues), but right below that was Repeal O’care. Sad to say, Trump has been heavily hindered on these so far, but I don’t think his constituents have forgotten. I haven’t.

    Sure, Dems, you go with that, geniuses. 🎓
