Is this all becoming surreal to you?
We’re trying to focus on all the things that are happening, but… Is a cyber-attack an act of war? – particularly when we are talking about the election of a president of the U.S.? Was the Trump campaign in collusion? How can we be going about business as usual with this kind of cloud over our democracy? Thank god it is not radioactive. Do the Republicans get it? Or are they pretending it didn’t/isn’t happening? Who cares whose meddling with the whole basis of our free enterprise information system? Are we talking about treason here?
Justice Neil Gorsuch???
To me it is incredible that we are considering a Supreme Court nominee under these conditions. We are talking about the control of the most important court in the judicial branch of our government! Hit the PAUSE button. NO until this cloud is totally examined! But the Senate Judicial Committee is having hearings right now, and Trump is calling for a full senate vote before the April recess. “We can’t have this seat vacant.”
JESSICA MASON PIEKLO, Vice President, Law and the Courts, Rewire, will discuss this. But I repeat, hit the PAUSE button. We have been attacked and we must assess the damage.
Life and death..
And if the Supreme Court is not serious enough, we are talking life and death. We are truly beginning to wonder about politicians who are in such a tunnel vision of their own agendas that they not only ignore a possible attack, but they are indifferent to the possibility of millions of people being denied health care and suffering the consequences, namely dying. As women, we quite aware that politicians are dictating health care regardless of their medical training. But they who scream so much about death panels are the ones in the judges’ panel seats. There is a projected vote on Trump/Ryan Care as early as Thursday.
DR. CAROL PARIS, MD, President, Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP), who was one of the protesters at Trump’s Nashville rally, will discuss her hope for Single Payer/Medicare for all. She tried for weeks to get a meeting with President Trump for weeks and got no answer so she decided to go to Nashville to try to speak with him. DR. PARIS will discuss Trump/Ryan Care and the advantages of single payer health care.
