Joe Kennedy III delivered a powerful rebuke to Paul Ryan who described the House version of Trumpcare as "an act of mercy".  Kennedy described it as "an act of malice."

As I heard this I could hear Bonnie Raitt in the background.  Unfortunately, her version of "Everybody's Crying Mercy" has had the embedding code disabled, so here is Mose Allison's version.

There's not much else to say except to ask how Republicans can look themselves in the mirror after proposign Trumpcare as a healthcare bill.  As Obama said, "It's not a healthcare bill."

Nope, it's not a health care bill.

Love the tune, though.

Joe Kennedy doesn't sound like a Kennedy but God, he sure looks like one

Not sure they can get it through a Senate Floor vote.

It's Allison's tune anyway. Nothing beats Mose.

I wondered. Mose was unique, Love his songs. Bonnie's was the first version I heard.

I'm torn between quoting (nothing original from me) from Queen's "Hammer to Fall" and The Clash's "This is England". Either or both exemplify what was going on in Thatcher's United Kingdom in the 1980s, and both provide savage parallels to what Americans are facing right now.

Hammer to Fall:

This is England:

Exactly...perhaps they hope for God's mercy to heal the poor who are sick because they won't.

Ron, I had forgotten, Mercy, Mercy, Mercy.  Great tune.

Boanerges, thanks for the shares.  I'm glad "This Is England" had lyrics.  Poigniant.

Sorry to take so long to get back with both of you.  It's been hectic.
