Lindsey Graham ‘hell-bent’ on replacing Ruth Bader Ginsburg despite Supreme Court saying she is 'cancer free'

Lindsey Graham ‘hell-bent’ on replacing Ruth Bader Ginsburg despite Supreme Court saying she is 'cancer free'Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has said she doesn’t plan on retiring before the presidential election in 2020 — but Republicans appear to have other ideas. Donald Trump’s White House and close allies have begun preparing for her replacement, with senior Republicans like Senator Lindsey Graham saying he will be “hell-bent” on replacing the notorious liberal justice with a conservative upon her departure — a move that could radically shift the balance of the court for decades. Despite the Supreme Court indicating the justice was recovering well after having two malignant nodules removed from her lung, the South Carolina Republican said on Fox News Sunday he would seek to fill the next open seat on the nation’s highest court with a conservative judge like the two others Donald Trump has selected during his presidency, including Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

Trump insists GOP talks on replacing Obamacare are ongoing

Trump insists GOP talks on replacing Obamacare are ongoingA little more than a week after telling reporters he was moving on after failing to rally enough Republican support to repeal and replace Obamacare — and vowing to let former President Barack Obama’s health care law “explode” — President Trump lashed out at the “fake news media” for casting the negotiations as dead. “Anybody (especially Fake News media) who thinks that Repeal & Replace of ObamaCare is dead does not know the love and strength in R Party!” Trump tweeted on Sunday.

John Oliver explains why the GOP is having so much trouble repealing and replacing Obamacare

John Oliver explains why the GOP is having so much trouble repealing and replacing ObamacareIf there was one thing Donald Trump was going to do were he elected president, it was to repeal and replace Obamacare. This has been a goal of the GOP since the day the Affordable Care Act became law, and with a Republican majority in both the House and the Senate under Trump, many assumed it would be one of the first pieces of legislation from the Obama administration to go, replaced with something else.

Unfortunately — as John Oliver explained on Last Week Tonight – the GOP's replacement healthcare plan needs to actually exist before the Republicans can convince anyone it's better than Obamacare.

Over the course of the 20-minute segment, Oliver speeds through the entire history of Obamacare, from those who were understandably concerned about what it might mean, to the website issues it faced on day one, to the recent town halls in which congressmen and senators have been repeatedly slammed for suggesting that they might repeal the ACA without having a replacement plan ready to take effect immediately.

Oliver, like countless other citizens of this country, admits that Obamacare is a flawed program. President Obama promised everyone that they would be able to keep their doctors, despite the fact that he must have known it was a promise he couldn't keep. Premiums on many health insurance plans have also increased since Obamacare passed, putting a strain on many Americans who were already struggling.

But the current proposals from the GOP are far more worrying than any of the issues of the ACA, Oliver argues. And the thing about the replacement plan is that if it fails, there won't be anyone else to blame.
