Out d'Coup | GOP Senate Ready for Next Health Care Attack; NRA Calls for War?; Antifa new Boogeyman; PA Budget with No Way to Fund; Guns in School; Body Cam Bill; and More!
Senate Republicans face round two in their repeal and replace health care debacle. The resistance heats up as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell horse-trades to push a vote before the August recess. Will opioids do the trick? Trump floats Repeal then Replace later plan. Mika Brzezinski fights Trump’s sexism with Cheerios. Cable News is, of course, thrilled at finally being able to cover a story it is trained to cover. Good thing the travel ban still partially in place, right? Are anti-fascists the new right-wing boogeyman? If they are, the NRA seems to have a plan. PennLive provides a “Guide to Antifa,” but misses the story.
It’s budget deadline time. Pennsylvania lawmakers are poised to vote on a $32 billion spending plan, even though they have no idea how to pay for it. Apparently, that’s enough for Lt. Gov. Mike Stack to invite state senators to his office for a party. We’re going to wait until we see where the money for the budget will come from before popping the cork. Will we see severance tax on natural gas? Closing Delaware loophole? Will this be another budget that gets enacted without the Governor’s signature? Meanwhile, across the river in New Jersey, Chris Christie’s insistence upon restructuring the state’s largest insurer, Horizon Blue Cross. Pennsylvania passes Guns in Schools bill...taking their cue from the NRA apparently. Two Democrats join Republicans in voting for taking one more step toward turning schools into Westworld training centers. And, Governor Wolf gets on board to limit public access to police body cam and dashcam recordings.
In today’s last call we’ll talk trailer hitch hell, Fourth of July celebrations, and what we’ll be drinking!
