It may be a difficult day for those suffering from triskaidekaphobia, known as a fear of the number 13. This number has always been associated with something or someone who is extremely negative and evil.

Paraskevidekatriaphobia or friggatriskaidekaphobia is a morbid, irrational fear of Friday the 13th

Today happens to be the first of two Friday the 13ths that will fall in 2017 and some fear it may be some sort of a strange omen.

House leaders may commit a crime if they give final approval on Friday the 13th to a budget that would shield the coming bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act from a Democratic filibuster in the Senate.

Stripping Democrats of their ability to endlessly delay that bill is crucial for Republicans, who have just a 52-48 edge in the Senate, where the budget passed early Thursday by a near party-line 51-48 vote.

The GOP claims the 2010 health care law is broken and must be repealed and replaced with something better, so why is it that replacement plan hasn't been revealed?
