Your Monday Morning Illustrated News Briefing

Health apocalypse
The Republican plan for America:
Ignorance, Poverty, Pestilence, Death

AZBlueMeanie at Blog for Arizona breaks into Senate closed health care hearings with a barrage of toons. Mitch McConnell, defends the increasingly Grotesque Other Party and hands Death a seat at the table in the secret GOP chamber of horrors.

The AP reports (via Daily Star) that Trump scrambles for GOP health votes; budget score looms. As usual, Trump delivers memorable (albeit nauseating) quotes in 140 characters or less.

“We have a very good plan,” Trump said in an interview aired Sunday. Referring to Republican senators opposed to the bill, he added: “They want to get some points, I think they’ll get some points.” [Scriber: But he’s talking about the conservative right-wing Senators. Those “points” will just make the Senate bill even less humane.]

Health negotiations
4th horseman, Death,
joins senate health care negotiations

“I want to see a bill with heart” [Scriber: It’s called Obamacare.]

“honestly, nobody can be totally happy” [Scriber: Other than Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell?]

“Health care’s a very complicated subject” [Scriber: That’s why Trump should not be let anywhere near it.]
