Because of course they would! Republican legislators want to keep popular Obamacare provisions for themselves and their staff. House Republicans appear to have included a provision that exempts Members of Congress and their staff from their latest health care plan. The new Republican amendment, introduced Tuesday night, would allow states... Continue reading

You thought that Trump and the Republicans actually cared about you. You were wrong. I'm very, very sorry and saddened that you're getting shafted by the politicians you trusted, but we tried to warn you, and you didn't listen. Continue reading

Apparently not!

When conservatives were aghast about how much time President Obama spent playing golf? Well, guess what? For the eighth weekend in a row, President Trump has visited a property that bears his name. He has done so on 21 of the 66 days he has been in office, meaning that... Continue reading

I suppose we should be thankful that Republicans are incompetent and inept, otherwise, they could do real harm. House Republican leaders abruptly pulled a rewrite of the nation’s health-care system from consideration on Friday, a dramatic acknowledgment that they are so far unable to repeal the Affordable Care Act. “We...

Moderate republicans couldn't support the bill because it was too cruel. Teabagger republicans couldn't support the bill because it wasn't cruel enough. Continue reading

ANd yet, Charlie Pierce is still a better writer, on both politics and baseball than Will is.

This may qualify as his laziest column ever. Its basically a synopsis of a fantasy novel that imagines what the US will look like if we don't follow guidelines laid out by The Heritage Foundation or Ayn Rand. He even writes "Atlas, shrugged" in his paper. I rate Will's column... Continue reading

Is there anyone in Trump's orbit who doesn't have some sort of shadowy connection to the Russians? Continue reading

Jeff Sessions is a liar. At his Jan. 10 Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing, Sessions was asked by Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) what he would do if he learned of any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of the 2016 campaign....

These are the assholes who terrorized a child's birthday party in Georgia. Listen to them blubber and whine as they're sent to the slammer! The woman crying, That's not me! That's not me!" Uh, yes, it WAS you. Yes, you DID make a mistake, and now, you will PAY. I... Continue reading

Yes, and it was lovely. Also, it being late February, the town and Battlefield were essentially deserted. The statue is of General Warren, who recognized the ROund Tops as the key to the Federal position, and rushed troops from the Fifth Corps up to the summit of Little Round Top just in time to repulse the Confederate attack.

I'm thinking he gets frustrated with it and resigns to "persue other interests."

What a craven, gutless little coward. It was supposed to be a chance to “Join Representative Tim Murphy as he discusses his Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act.” But Mr. Murphy. an Upper St. Clair Republican, canceled a workshop scheduled at Duquesne University’s student union at 2:30 p.m. this...

The Frothling wanted meatloaf. That looked like a football. So Mrs. Froth and I helped her make one. While I wouldn't recommend trying to kick it through the goalposts, it was quite delicious. Continue reading

This administration is totally inept. The presser was a disaster, Trump came off looking like a codger yelling at kids to get off his lawn. I really think there's a chance he won't last the year. Continue reading

While I think its more important to resist Trump and the Republicans on their policy positions, it is becoming clearer and clearer day by day that Trump and the people he surrounds himself with are simply incompetent. Continue reading

Oh I agree with that. I'm just saying if Trump quits or is removed from office, Pence is unlikely to blow up the world because his ego was bruised.
