Reconciliation Passes


The healthcare reconciliation bill has passed the Senate and is on its way to the House for final passage. That was quick. Did Republicans just completely give up on all their brilliant plans for obstruction? They only offered up 40 amendments. I thought the plan was for hundreds. I hope their base punishes them for being the sellouts they obviously are.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
