It isn’t a surprise, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell kept his health care bill a secret because it is even worse than the House passed Trumpcare bill.
I’m watching the Food Channel at the moment, so I thought we’d continue on with our exploration of Rethuglican cuisine. I thought we could take a look at cereal. After all, everyone loves cereal, just ask Mikey!

A new Suffolk University poll released Thursday shows GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle surging to the front of the pack in a close race for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in the Silver State’s GOP primary.
