@aric @ItsTheBrandi We need to fill out the bracket. He’s in.
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaWe must be clear. This important victory against the Republican health care plan is not the end of our work. It is the beginning.

Retweeted by Fred Beukema @davidlsims @soniasaraiya Many are."We learned some very arcane rules" Like the rule that says you need a majority of votes to pass a bill. Very arcane. Little known rule.
Retweeted by Fred Beukema @dhmontgomery Yes, which is great! But left me wondering whether all the DFL are out, all GOP in, or if this is an individuals thing. @dhmontgomery I feel like this begs the question of the party/parties of those included and those not.If Ds don't at bare minimum counter with public option to stabilize exchanges, Rs will be able to run against them on health care in 2018/20

Retweeted by Fred Beukema @fabiansociety @fabiansociety B-but, it's hard!Dems gained 6 US House seats in 2016 election. Barely noticed except as disappointment. May really matter now. #ACHA
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaDamn. Nevermind beats Odelay (@thecurrent) by nearly 2-to-1 margin. Hard to imagine anything else beating it now. #boringenigma: that will be the return to yourself, the return to innocence me: HEEEEYOOOOWAAAAAAAAIIIYYYYAAAAAYAAAYYYAAA…

Of course, 23 years ago I was an ignorant 14 year old.Very interesting hearing "Hook" w/ 2017 ears (on @TheCurrent this am). 2nd verse could largely be Trump interior monologue.There are 23. @RepErikPaulsen is one of them. #mn03
Retweeted by Fred Beukema @ThisIsMPah But expressing human stakes would be taking a side! @PaddyoNeilio @SarahEBond Or when voting for the AHCA. @chrislhayes This is the AHCA trajectory currently scaring me. wish Gorillaz would work with Del again. @TheCurrent @JillRiley@BrianOake @annatreed No matter who wins, we lose.

Retweeted by Fred Beukemayes yes. if we aren't voting to take health care from tens of millions of people, what are we even doing?
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaIt takes stunning incompetence to spend $186 billion more, yet not cover any more people.
Retweeted by Fred Beukema @MustHaveBeenAwk I had no idea. That’s awesome.I thought the photos were just catching him at bad moments. The video is worse. add insult to injury, the revised GOP health plan covers neither insult nor injury.
Retweeted by Fred Beukema @section_sign I don't get why people don't understand that paying for someone else now means someone else pays for yours later
