Why aren't the media reporting on this, why are they ignoring these facts yet reporting fabricating stories about how
the democrats are refusing to hold bicameral negotiations?

How can the fourth estate be so irresponsible on reporting facts, why not call out the republicans on their efforts
to minimize healthcare and how they plan to use that as a weapon to negotiate with the democrats?

Why not call out the republicans publicly for holding this country hostage?

Stop with the pandering and get the republicans to move their asses.
