| Filed under: PolitikDonald TrumpHealth

The GOP rushed to pass their health care bill in the House before it could even get a grade from the Congressional Budget Office. But now, THREE WEEKS LATER we finally have some answers about what's in it.

And it's as bad as was expected.

The non-partisan CBO has determined the American Health Care Act as it stands will mean 23 million fewer people with health insurance by 2026 and 14 million fewer will qualify for Medicaid.

These numbers are pretty close to where they were under the previous incarnations of the bill. Though it obviously STILL goes against Donald Trump's promise of "insurance for everybody."

NOW however, it's going to cost more. While the previous bill was rated as cutting the deficit by about $150 mil over ten years, this one will only cut it by $119 mil.

But the biggest change is from the last-minute additions, which are all about giving individual states the option to waive Obamacare protections. The CBO says this will split the country into three different zones:

Since his dog, Alpha, goes everywhere AJ does — it only makes sense that he's become a part of the Stafford High community, even nabbing his own spot in the yearbook and his very own student ID card (below):

After delivering his last presidential impersonation of the season, Alec Baldwin tackled a much more personal issue: his battle with Lyme disease.

The actor flew to California on Sunday to speak for the Bay Area Lyme Foundation LymeAid benefit for research at a private home outside Palo Alto.

In his speech, the Saturday Night Live veteran spoke on his own struggle with Lyme disease for the first time since a casual comment to the New York Times in 2011.

Baldwin has always been reluctant to talk about the disease, and the foundation's executive director Linda Giampa said she's been trying to get him to attend the event for years.

This year, however, Giampa said the actor "just felt the time was right" to talk about his illness — which was discussed with plenty of jokes. He said walking up to the stage:

lady gaga best friend dies from cancer

What a sad situation.

On Sunday, Lady GaGa confirmed that her longtime best friend, Sonja Durham, has passed away. As you may recall, it was revealed last year that the Haus of Gaga managing director was battling breast, brain, and lung cancer. And while Durham used to serve as the Million Reasons singer's assistant back in the day, GaGa has lost so much more than an employee as the twosome have known each other for more than a decade.

Fans Call Out Doctors & Drug Companies After Chris Cornell's Wife Says Suicide May Have Been Caused By Prescription Ativan

| Filed under: DrugsR.I.P.Sad SadHealthViral: News

Chris Cornell's suicide is just so hard to understand. And to his widow Vicky it's "inexplicable."

In a statement early on Friday, she specifically mentioned her husband telling her he had taken "an extra Ativan or two" and that he was "slurring his words."

The Cornells' attorney Kirk Pasich concurred, saying the family was "disturbed at inferences that Chris knowingly and intentionally took his life."

The family is apparently looking to blame the prescription medication and are hoping the full autopsy results support their case that Chris' suicide was not his own idea.

It may sound bizarre for a drug used to treat anxiety, but one of the listed side effects of Ativan, the brand name of lorazepam, is suicidal ideation and suicide attempts.

Many on Twitter following the story were quick to support Vicky's position, including fans, doctors, and recovering addicts:

Some would say Roger Ailes didn't have much to live for after last year's career-ending sexual harassment scandal.

But Bill O'Reilly, fellow Fox News fallen angel, knows exactly who to blame for the former network head's recent death: the haters and losers!

A coroner's report determined Ailes died on Thursday after an earlier fall caused a bleed in his brain — however, O'Reilly is has a more controversial theory.
