Jack Shapiro of Organizing For Action states of ObamaCare, “Whether they call it “repeal” or “repair,” their intention to gut the law is clear. Right now, that means trying to strip core elements of the law through a special budgetary trick known as reconciliation. This would destroy the health care marketplace, causing millions to lose health coverage, raising costs, and hurting families. While the law can certainly be improved, that’s not what they’re trying to do.”
President Trump has promised that his new plan will scrap the parts of ObamaCare that don’t work, replacing it with something better, and keep the rest.

Jobs and Education
The White House and President Trump said today that, and I quote, “The past 8 years have taken a toll on America’s job force. But now, we have already begun bringing OUR jobs back to OUR country. Today we are excited to announce that Intel has pledged to make a $7 billion investment in Arizona, creating 10,000 jobs! Companies across America are making the commitment to creating thousands of new jobs everyday.”
Vice President Michael Pence sent out a letter today which partly states, and I quote, “Today, I cast the tie-breaking vote in the Senate to confirm President Donald Trump’s nominee for Secretary of Education: Betsy DeVos. The vote the President asked me to cast wasn’t just for Betsy – it was also for America’s future. Our nation’s success depends on the education of our students. In Betsy DeVos, we have one of America’s foremost advocates for educational opportunity and excellence.”

With performances from Jim Caviezel as Jesus and Monica Bellucci as Mary Magdalen, the new edition features English, Spanish and Portuguese language dubbed audio for the first time ever.
