Hypocrisy: Republicans want an Ebola Czar but won't confirm a Surgeon General.


Republicans have cut funding for health research and emergency preparations. They've tried to take health insurance away from millions of people with their senseless Obamacare repeal votes. In addition, Republicans have been blocking the president's Surgeon General nominee because the NRA lobby doesn't like the fact that he views gun violence as a public health issue.

Local Republican calls for military coup, but not in an "ill intent" kind of way.


Whether someone is a high-profile Washington elite or a local elected official, there's no excuse for calling the President of the United States a "domestic enemy" or soliciting the armed forces to remove him from office. This is America, not a third-world country where people can threaten a military coup. Top to bottom, today's Republican Party has gone off the rails. Instead of insurrection, we need to vote out Republicans at every level this November.
