    Not clear from this that this is actually happening but supposedly it will be his own money, and the charities are listed:

    I think his foundation is under investigation and the money can't come from there. If he does actually give this money the first of it will go to things like Franklin Graham and other Christian leaders who are his supporters. Good luck to the Red Cross and Salvation Army, but I could be wrong. I hope for the sake of the people of Houston that I am in deed wrong.

    And so it starts again - this time it is the Graham/Cassidy Health Bill. They say this one is the worse one of all.

    I was glad to see Jimmy Kimmel come out tonight and speak about it. He had Cassidy on his program and Cassidy promised him he would not vote for a health care bill that did not pass the Kimmel test. Jimmy Kimmel said he lied to his face. He says this was has already got a number of organizations coming out against it - The American Cancer Assoc, The Heart Ass., The Diabetic Ass., The ALS Ass, the Multiple Sclerosis Ass., the Children's Hospital Ass. and on and on.

    They want to ram it through before anyone knows what is really in it. If the House passes it, Ryan has already said he would get it passed. These people just do not give a tinker's damn about the people. They are asking that everyone call their representatives again.
    To reach them you can call 202-224-3121. Please call, Seniors will also be effected by this bill and once again Medicaid will be chopped. So disabled as well as Seniors will feel the effects.
