The "Morally Bankrupt" GOP

The Senate Republican healthcare bill is secret no more.

There's just one problem - it's not really a healthcare bill.

With one of their own now a victim of a mass shooting, will Republicans finally start thinking sensibly about gun control and finally rethink their penchant for violent political rhetoric?

Republicans Are Trying To Repeal Obamacare In Secret

Republicans Admit to Accepting Bribes, Why Aren't They In Jail?
