Re: Mueller's investigation of Trump

“The system we have actually seems to work pretty well,” Josh Chafetz, a professor of law at Cornell Law School, said of the return to special prosecutors appointed by the attorney general. “In the few cases where a prosecutor has been fired, the blowback was so intense that a new one was appointed...

Re: What's Worse for the GOP: If Roy Moore Wins or Loses?

I went against the tide and said that it would be worse for the Republicans if Moore loses. Republicans were able to minimize the Virginia election losses by declaring Virginia to be a blue state. That ignored the fact that the Virginia House of Delegates had 66 Republicans to 34 Democrats going in...

Yet 22 percent still voted R. It's head-shaking that some who have health care as top concern still think R's will offer a better approach.

Re: Mueller's investigation of Trump

I think over the summer, the GOP Senate told him firing Mueller or Sessions is a big no-no. That, plus Trump for all his "I strike back" bravado doesn't relish direct confrontation. He has learned his pardon powers are easily exercised. The renewed Mueller attacks allow Trump to posture t...

Re: Puerto Rico Hurricane Recovery

I really, really, really doubt that's true. I know it's being reported in what ought to be responsible publications, but I haven't seen anything that's actually confirmed it. If it is true, it's disgraceful. I've seen this on Newsweek.com as well. The story seems off for two reasons. First, one doe...

Re: ACA/AHCA/Whatever the hell the next plan is called....

Given the situations with McCain and Menendez in NJ, there's unfortunately a good chance R's get their 50th vote within about a year. This is going to keep coming up. I expect then to try for the 2-fer of tax and health in the next budget instructions to keep the 50 vote possibility. That will compl...

Why is it so hard for these morons to see that dicking around with the insurance is only going to drive people to the ERs and then not pay their bills? Which will drive doctors and hospitals and clinics out of business. The ACA repeal has never been about policy. It's about the political win. And w...

Re: ACA/AHCA/Whatever the hell the next plan is called....

I have a sick feeling in my gut over this. I hear they're at 49, which I'm guessing is Paul, Murkowski and Collins as No. At the risk of inducing more nausea, if they are at 49 before McCain is counted, McCain will make 50 if he follows what he said and votes per Gov. Ducey's signal. Maybe Cassidy ...

I wonder how Paul rationalizes No on G-C when he voted for mini-repeal. I see him turning. I'm hoping it's one of several cases of red expansion state govs. looking at G-C and going "hell no." KY would take a huge hit. Skinny Repeal didn't touch Medicaid. Though Paul's statement makes lit...
