Congressional Democrats Plan to Hold the House Floor Against the GOP


So apparently the Democrats are planning a full day of speeches in the Senate to hold the floor against the Republican party at an attempt to craft a healthcare bill behind closed doors.

They plan to hold the floor start Monday all the way until at least midnight Tuesday morning in order to “protest” the GOP’s attempt to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. Democrats have been obsessed with the process the GOP has used to repeal Obamacare, calling for a more open and public process.

“We are going to fight it every single step of the way,” Sen. Pat Murray told Politico.

Progressive activists are urging Democrats to do as much as they can to stop the GOP from passing a bill. Republican leadership is hoping to pass a healthcare bill by the July 4 recess.
