I would like to thank all of the Senate *Democrats* who have held strong in this battle over the ACA

With all of the attention and praise heaped on McCain, Collins, Murkowski, etc., remember that Senate Democrats (including the most conservative among them) have closed ranks and that has made victory possible.

Also remember that if the seats held by McCain, Collins, Murkowski et al were held by Democrats instead of them, we wouldn't be fighting this battle in the first place.

Let's not fool ourselves. All of the above mentioned Senators are Republicans, and their presence in Congress gives Mitch McConnell the majority. We should not be lulled into thinking that there are acceptable Republicans. All Republicans should be targets for replacement!

1. I called Murphy today to thank him.

He is prepared to read 100 amendments to stall for time until the calendar expires Oct 1st.

2. Murphy is a great Democrat

Hard-working, stalwart, doesn't suffer fools. His Twitter feed is great.

3. They deserve loads of credit

Along with all of us who called, faxed, emailed and protested. Our Dems have done us proud. Not one defection, ever!

5. Thanks to all the Dems, and especially to our GREAT leadership: "Chuck and Nancy"

It is they who hold the line.

6. I've been pleasantly surprised at Heitkamp & Manchin. I thought surely they'd be easy targets, but

they've held strong.

7. And let's remember that McCain, Collins and company

have all voted over 50 times to repeal Obamacare.

9. We don't have to be jerks either

No one forgets that those senators are republicans.
But, its nice to acknowledge a little help from the other side.
We all know that doesn't mean we think its all going to be sweetness and light but, we don't have to be jerks either

10. please remember this

when the GOp tries talking "bipartisanship" and some democrats talk "compromise." There is no compromise with the GOP , they will simply wait until our heads are in the crosshairs and shoot
