All we need is one or two patriotic GOP Senators to stop the Russian invasion by stopping Repeal and

Replace. That alone would sharply curtain the impact of the Russian coup taking place before our eyes. The next step would be to oust most of the GOP in 2018.

Can you name two more who might step up and be a profile in courage?

It will be hard I know. Even God couldn't find 10 good men in all the earth to keep it from being destroyed according to the Bible.

6. what they actually care about:

sanctions - ending them
nato - destabilizing it
eu - weakening it
syria - propping up the assad regime and increasing Russian influence in the region
Ukraine - with nato defanged, expanding Russian influence in eastern Ukraine

All of which is part of their overall goal of resuming a role as a major power.

I really doubt that "ACA repeal" is part of their plan.

3. Billionaire COMPUTER WIZARD Robert Mercer is the force behind the GOP, because of "Citizens United."

7. They are there, many of them in fact.

But too yellow to be the third one to defeat the bill. Instead you will see a grouping of them at one time coming out against the bill, once the next CBO analysis is received. This bill isn't going anywhere, and they are leaving their counterparts in the house hanging out to dry with the stench of this legislation all over them.

10. Good luck with that.

Patriotism to the entire country including the liberal half is a foreign concept to Repubs. They only want to eliminate opposition, not work with it for a better America. It's an attitude so deeply ingrained that I can't imagine a Republican without it especially in the Senate.
