Seriously? This is the message that the DNC is proposing to run with?
If the hospitals are coming out against the GOP health care proposal, you know it desperately needs revision. https://t.co/auzB09keqO

That’s insane. Who came up with this response? The GOP’s plan to destroy the crowning achievement of our last Democratic president doesn’t “need revision”—it needs to be exposed, mocked, and completely obliterated. There’s absolutely no “compromise” to be had here, and to even think there might be is utterly deluded in the age of Trump.
Thankfully, the DNC is far from the all-powerful entity some critics makes it out to be. It doesn’t set policy for the party or direct the priorities of congressional Democrats. But it is extremely visible, and this kind of talk is dismaying to everyone who wants to see the Democratic Party standing up and fighting like hell against everything Trump and the sick husk of the GOP are trying to foist on the country.
So please, DNC, delete this tweet and try again. Your job is to empower the resistance, not discourage it.
