The Democratic nominee for President in 2020 should consider a "New Frontier"-type campaign, not only because it is a proven path to success but because, as President Kennedy said about the fight for racial equality, "It is the right thing to do."
Tomorrow will be a defining day in American history. You need to be a part of that history and help to determine what path our country will take. If you haven't already...vote!
In a way, much of America seems to be just stunned, standing in the middle of a house where an orange-faced arsonist is pouring gasoline everywhere and threatening to drop the (Nazi) torch he's carrying if he gets mad enough.
"By just taking healthcare away from 35 million people, we could lower premiums and provide less coverage for 750,000 people! It's a win-win!" Satan smirked, doing his Martin Shkreli impersonation.
Trump never exhibited any of the basic skills of a skilled negotiator, it's only been about using the lowest, crudest and most unprincipled tactic that criminal types have in their arsenal...extortion.
Trump's success has been based on the cult of personality and while he's been right that cultists can't be convinced by reason out of believing in their cult leader, they can grow discouraged when The Promised Land that cult leader promised only he could deliver (and only for them, "the believers"), doesn't come.

McConnell provided an estimate from The Heritage Foundation that his amendment to a repeal of Obamacare would reduce the deficit by $4 trillion over ten years, thanks to huge savings in social programs as 50% of America's population dies prematurely.
The House's and Senate's so-called "health care" bills are transparent tools of class warfare, they are defined by the Congressional Budget Office as ripping away healthcare from 22 million to 24 million Americans to deliver hundreds of billions of dollars in tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans.
Republicans lose on healthcare no matter what happens and they may in fact be passing single payer in the future if they pass zero-payer for millions of Americans as they are trying to do right now.
