Last quote by Chris Coons

Look, it's hard for me to believe that for something as important as a bill that would remake health care for hundreds of millions of people, that they're holding no hearings. There's a reason that President Trump called the House version of Obamacare repeal 'mean.' It's because it cuts Medicaid by too much, and it cuts Medicare by too much just to fund a tax cut. I think there's a real reason that the Republican leadership here in the Senate is hiding this bill even from its own members.feedback

I've frankly been reflecting on if not Mr. Tillerson, who else might President-elect Trump choose. I haven't made up my mind yet.
