Trump needs to speak to the country. Tell America this is a defining vote and ask the people to take note if their Senator does not vote for the tax bill.
McCain looks terrible. The expression on his face was very un McCain. As much as I dislike this egoist I can only hope he has done some soul searching and can make peace with the Lord and the fact that he was never as important as he gave himself credit for.
“I think you are right. It may turn out to be the biggest, deadliest scandal of all time.”
My grandfather died in 1962 while being treated for leukemia. The oncologist at the time told my mother he actually died from the drugs, not the cancer. In those days determining the dose for an individual was a guess, essentially each person was a trial. Of course a that time malpractice suits were rare so doctors could be more open with patients and families about the nature and risk of treatment.
Ten years later my grandmother died a horrible death from breast and lung cancer enduring surgery and extensive drug therapy under the care of the same oncologist. By that time, the doctor was much less open about the options and risks.
I had cancer over a decade ago and opted for surgery and low dosage radiation which seems to have worked. Later I had a neurological condition for which drug therapy was prescribed. After enduring horrible side effects for three months from the drugs, I opted to discontinue the treatment and live with the condition. If I had a recurrence of cancer today, I would not undergo chemotherapy. No one I know personally, who has undergone chemotherapy, has survived more than two years. The experience of each one undergoing chemotherapy has been horrible.
Big pharma controls the medical industry, most medical research, and heavily influences health care legislation by government through huge campaign contributions. Over the last 10 years I’ve seen doctors become primarily pill pushers while the cost of drugs keeps going higher. Big pharma is poisoning the population and making huge profits doing so.
I pray that you are wrong...but very much suspect that you are right!
McCain will be flown to DC, by Air Force One, to cast the winning vote for TAX CUTS for ALL AMERICANS.
Trump is allowing him to go out a WINNER. God Bless.
It's his mission to screw over the country, especially Trump, as much as possible before he kicks the bucket.
You are right. The cancer industry is a beast. If you want to see real collusion, look at it and the media - there is a blackout on alternative cancer therapies that have cured many. All we see in the media is complex, expensive high-tech medical treatments for difficult cases that sometimes help.
But I think the market will prevail over time, as people become educated and begin to look at alternatives and reject the medical model
>>Can easily see him flying AF1 overnight to grab McLame, bring him to DC
That is such an exceedingly kind view of the situation. You have a very good heart.
Cancer is an apex evil. Everyone has horrible experiences or knows of someone who did. Barbaric chemo treatment has barely changed in decades. There have been some wonderful advances in other areas but not that. We here about new things all the time like biologicals tailored to the individual. Where are they in the field? I think the FDA is corrupt. Europe and Asia have made great advances and actually use them. Here the approval process drags on forever. A curse on the guilty.
But there was no way to accommodate anything but showing up when the rule was made. What would our forefathers do in this EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCE? Put it on a live screen on the Senate floor.
I repeat...Johnson was sworn in on a plane.
“Oncology is a racket.”
My mom had colon cancer and chose to just have it cut out along with an ostomy. She went to an oncologist who encouraged further treatment with chemo. As a nurse who had seen too many severely debilitated by the treatment, she decided she wasn’t going to spend her remaining time miserable from chemo. I think the oncologist was amazed when she lived another 3 years past the surgery. She only spent her last 10 days out of her house at a nursing home in that entire time.
swearing in a president is different than being part of a body of leaders taking a vote
Is the boot on the correct foot in this picture?
He looks awful because he’s dying. Probably won’t see New Years.
“A Senator must be in the Chamber to vote.”
This needs to be changed. As long as it isn’t abused, and is used for difficult circumstances, I see no problem with some kind of video feed vote.
I would feel the same if the DEMS were in power.
I’ll be happy if Juan never votes again.
I am sorry for your loss. Cancer is a racket and I feel for those who have it and for the families who have to watch this disease take control.
I feel even worse when the medical profession attempts to sell you a certain treatment which in the end, does not work and does more harm than good.
I think it depends on the doctors.
Some are so money-hungry it makes me sick.
You have it right. Trumps way of saying goodbye.
