CBO Scores the 'Skinny Repeal'; In Turn, Unhappy Republicans Vote to Defund the CBO
You Know Nothing John Dough is now my favorite bakery (I don’t even have to eat there to know that it is) and Hot Pie is now my favorite occasional recurring GoT character! - (Unilad)
How desperate are the Republicans right now to pass something? Well, how’s this for desperate: The Dems asked the Congressional Budget Office to score the ‘Skinny Repeal,’ which is currently seen as the only possibility of passing something in the Senate. The CBO says that it will result in 16 million people losing their insurance, and premiums rising by 20 percent NEXT YEAR. The GOP doesn’t like that, so what do they do?
House now voting on amendment to defund @USCBO; appears to be going down bigly. Dems united against, Rs evenly split.— Mike DeBonis (@mikedebonis) July 27, 2017
Thankfully, the vote doesn’t look as though it will pass, but Christ.
Kate Hudson shaved her head for a movie role (written by and directed by Sia. Yeah, Sia with ALL the hair.) and goddammit, do all women other than me look amazing with short or shaved hair? - (Lainey)
Trump announced today on Twitter (you know, like how Presidents should announce all important information) that transgender Americans are no longer welcome in the military, citing “the medical costs”. Oh, but hey, check this out - the military spends TEN TIMES “the cost of annual transition-related medical care for active duty transgender servicemembers” on erectile dysfunction drugs. Thank god the military budget still allows for boners! - (WashPost)
Kat Von D held a contest recently and after selecting the winner, discovered that she (the winner) is a Trump supporter. Kat disqualified the contestant and awarded the prize to the photographer instead. - (Celebitchy)

This is an eye-opening (and scary if you’re a parent of a child who plays football) study of the brains of deceased players; CTE was found in 110 out of 111 brains. - (NYTimes)
Kfishgirl has Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, and Heal Hashimoto’s: Start with the Gut by Dr. Sharon Lee Rasa was free on Kindle. There was some worthwhile information, but mostly it was bad. Dr. Rasa, not a medical doctor, had questions like, "Is it possible that the story in Genesis was the earliest reference to the Garden in our Gut?" Kfishgirl’s reply was "I’m gonna say no." Are free books on health always bad? (Cannonball Read 9)
