Go ahead. Sit back, count your money, and watch Republicans dispose of Obamacare. They promised to do it. It’s what we wanted. The party has been waiting for the chance for years. The new White House will claim a massive victory for the people when it’s done.
If someone close to you has died from cancer or if you have been diagnosed, you know all too well that curing cancer is important. Cancer changes lives in ways that can never be repaired. Keeping this in mind, were you amused or offended by the newest grab from our lame duck president for more space in the history books?
My father died last Wednesday. He was a World War II veteran and a good man with an infallible moral compass. He had been sick for a long time.
