So — What Did It Take to Buy Rep. Mark Amodei’s Vote FOR passage of #AHCA

It’s amazing the difference a week can make.  Last week Rep. Mark Amodei was a “NO” on passage of the American Health Care Act (AHCA), H.R. 1628. I’m not sure what he was offered to buy is “YEA” vote, but it must have been good, for him that is, because it certainly is good for any of …

(Originally posted on Rockolitics on May 20, 2014) I wrote to Rep.

Chip Evans on Donald Trump being Donald Trump
