Hillary Clinton set aside her sideline stance to shoot down the Republican's new #Health Care Bill. Clinton asserts that if the Republican health care bill becomes law, Americans are going to die as a result. In her tweet, the former Democrat presidential candidate makes accusations that an outcome of Trump's health care overhaul could mean that as many as 28,000 Americans might lose their lives in 2026. Clinton cited a study organized by the liberal Center for American Progress in conjunction with Harvard researchers. A few Republican senators apparently agree with Clinton, on some level, since they indicate they will not support their party's efforts to pass Trump's healthcare measure.

Meanwhile, some Democrats agree that the hoopla over Russian interference in the unprecedented 2016 presidential election is as much Obama's slip up as it is a blemish on Trump's administration.

Some Republican senators conveyed they will not support Trumpcare

Nevada Senator Dean Haller stated, "[I] cannot support a piece of legislation that takes away insurance from tens of millions of Americans and hundreds of thousands of Nevadans." Several other Republican senators have stated, on the record, they too will not vote for Trumpcare. Among them are Kentucky's Rand Paul, Maine's Susan Collins, and Texas' Ted Cruz. Utah's Mike Lee went as far as to state he thinks Trump's healthcare bill is a 'joke.'

A few Democrats admit Obama may be to blame for Russia

In the meantime, several Democrats expressed doubt regarding President Trump holding the sole blame for Russia's alleged tampering in the 2016 presidential election.

For example, U.S. Representative for California's 28th congressional district, Adam Schiff, a ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, indicated the Obama administration should have and probably could have stopped Russia's medalling in the election.

Schiff described Obama's handling of the brouhaha as “a very serious mistake.” Schiff went on to explain what he believed about Obama's actions on CNN's State of the Union last Sunday. Schiff stated, “the American people needed to know, and I didn’t think it was enough to tell them after the election but rather given the seriousness of this, I think the [Obama] administration needed to call out Russia earlier and needed to act to deter and punish Russia earlier, and I think that was a very serious mistake.”

At the same time Senator Joe Manchin, who is a West Virginia Democrat and is on the Senate Intelligence Committee, stepped up to defend the Obama administration. He explained that Obama took specific actions in December right after the election.

The steps taken comprised of closing two compounds and kicking out 35 Russian diplomats. Nevertheless, Manchin would not make excuses for Obama. Explaining that what was known way back in August ought to have been brought to the public's attention at that time and it was not. He intimated this was Obama's past mistake and not Trump's current.

Accordingly, there may well be bridges erected between America's two main political parties. Who knows? This could thaw the ice that has kept America in a perpetual state of chaotic discord. Might this signal an end to the friction that many Americans claim led to Trump's White House win in the first place? Could we be at the start of a new era in the American political arena? #Russian investigation #Democrats vs Republicans
