Health Care Watch Day 41: Still No Republicans in Sight

It’s been nearly seven weeks since Republicans took up Obamacare repeal. There have still been no hearings and none are in sight. Still no CBO score. Still no press conferences. Still no markups. Still no bill that the public is allowed to see.

Sarah Kliff is appalled. “I’ve covered Obamacare since day one,” she says. “I’ve never seen lying and obstruction like this.” And that’s just the headline.

But if it works, Mitch McConnell doesn’t care. And so far it’s working.

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.
