Senate Majority Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) made a major mistake back in May when he convened a panel of senators to craft his chamber’s plan to repeal and replace Obamacare. The 13-member working group he put together included exactly zero women, despite the fact that several female Republican senators were widely seen as key swing votes who would determine the fate of the legislation. That move came back to bite McConnell earlier this week, as three women Republicans—Sens. Susan Collins (Maine), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), and Shelly Moore Capito (W.Va.)—came out against the most recent GOP proposal.

What a joke the whole boondoggle is. If they WANTED to know how to fix health care, all they'd have to do is call up the health ministry of any other industrialized country and ask them to FAX over a copy of their health care legislation. How many minutes would that take? Oh, and they might have to get help from a translator. Or google translate.
