As Mr Mencken warned so often, "Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard."


Josh Marshall spotlights the bloodsports of 2018:
The fun thing for Republicans about this morning’s push to pass Trumpcare 3.0 in the House is that it’s so close that basically each of the remaining undecided Republicans will reasonably be the “deciding” vote that lost health care for 20+ million people and got rid of protections for people with pre-existing conditions. So not, “House Republicans passed” it. But you, Rep. X cast the deciding vote that lost these 20+ million people lost their health care. You did it. It was you.
Here in North Carolina, Republicans are less febrile.

Under the whip hand of Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (who, aptly, lives in Cashiers), all ten NCGOP House members are down with repealing Obamacare and replacing it with the text of Hunger Games.
