6/25/17 - EDITORIAL: One-sided health care plans won't benefit Iowans [The Gazette, Cedar Rapids, Iowa]
June 25 For more than seven years Republicans have claimed the Affordable Care Act was developed and passed by Democrats alone under a shroud of secrecy.

6/25/17 - EDITORIAL: Senate's unseemly rush to vote on health bill [The Press Democrat, Santa Rosa, Calif.]

6/25/17 - GOP's Jekyll and Hyde health plan
