Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

They Are Going To Screw Us

With the Senate now in GOP hands, even if Scalia shuffles off his mortal coil or Alito returns to whatever circle of hell coughed him up, the Court will not be adding any Democrats until 2017.

And it seems to me that the Supremes could be using the midterm election as cover to finally kill the Affordable Care Act.   Immune from public pressure and now protected by sizable majorities in both Houses, I can see Roberts deciding that this is his opportunity to win the fight they lost last time.

For all it's flaws, the ACA is a huge step forward for millions of Americans and millions of Americans to come.

But you just know they will try and kill it again.
