    Durbin, Duckworth, Labor and the national Democratic Party backing of a labor organizer and Bernie Sanders delegate couldn't even take out Bolingbrook's Trump donor Mayor in a blue collar city that went overwhelmingly for Hillary. And to make it worse, the guy had a DUI while mayor and was caught up in a scandal over contributions and liquor licenses.

    Strike outs everywhere so far, in multiple states and at every level. This was supposed to be their strongest moment and all they've done is put Bruno on D41.

    One more chance - Omaha Mayoral race. Bernie Sanders is campaigning with the Pro-Life candidate there today.

    That was not a typo, Sanders is supporting the abortion opponent noted for his co-sponsoring of an anti-abortion bill in the state legislature.

    If Sanders helps win the race for the pro-lifer, does this become the blueprint going forward?

    Suburban lawmakers slam Trump over sharing information with Russians

    Republican U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam of Wheaton called the revelations troubling.

    "It is the president's responsibility to protect America's secrets from America's enemies," Roskam told the Daily Herald in a written statement. "It is alarming to read reports suggesting President Trump revealed classified information to Vladimir Putin's adversarial regime."

    Many Boomers Face Double Trouble in GOP Healthcare Bill

    Younger, healthier people would overwhelmingly benefit from these lower premiums. In 2026, a single 21-year-old making $26,500 would pay $1,250 in net annual premiums in states that make moderate changes to essential health benefits, versus $1,700 under current law, the CBO said. But a single 64-year-old earning the same amount would pay $13,600 annually in net premiums in the same state, versus just $1,700 under current law for more comprehensive benefits, according to the CBO report.
    The AHCA would allow states to apply for waivers that would weaken protections for pre-existing conditions, which disproportionately affect older consumers. Some 84% of people ages 55 to 64 have pre-existing conditions, according to a recent report by Aviva Aron-Dine of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

    Any number a 21 year old would pay greater than $0 is an asset considering now they can stay on their parents plan until age 26.....
