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.

Please Proceed, Congressmen

Again, I'm a relatively affluent guy with employer-based health insurance, so I'm getting a fair amount of schedenfreude over the GOP's hopeless situation on Obamacare.

Martin Longman has the best advice: Repeal "Obamacare" and immediately pass almost the exact same plan, but call it "Trumpcare."  I mean, seriously, given how immeasurably dumb our press coverage of policy is, they would probably get away with it.
