Insurance companies are our new regulatory bodies, part 143.
The UK. I feel bad for May and think she’s done about a good a job as she can do with the shitty hand she got dealt. When you’re sitting at the table with an off suit 2 and 6, there’s not much you can do.
There are two DemSocs in the House. 2. As in not enough to play a half decent game of Settlers of Catan. They may succeed in shifting the party a little to the left, but it’s not like the antics of Tlaib and Cortez are setting themselves up as kingmakers.
Has a 1st term House member ever accomplished anything aside from making noise? That was my reaction to her promise to push through a 'progressive agenda.' Welcome to being a junior member of a sub-committee, AOC, hopefully you'll be able to get some local pork into the F35 authorization bill. She ...
If only someone would invent some sort of space-sharing arrangement so that 2 or 3 young folks, making a fresh start in a new city all at once, could combine their meager resources to live in one place until they established a foothold there. She crashed at friends' places in DC. Her point was how ...
You're still not addressing her point. I've addressed it sufficiently. If anything, she was perfectly capable of getting a loan. Her alternative being having to obtain a short term loan at usurious rates makes her case more than it goes against it. I think having a minimalist Congressional dorm so ...

You guys are a lot more certain than most legal commenters I’ve seen about how clear the violation on emoluments is. You would be expanding the case law to get a) the president at all; b) arguing that having a hotel or resort or other business transaction is basically the same as taking a salary fr...

Some dudes called Laura Loomer pretending to be Twitter execs telling her that CAIR got her kicked off Twitter. She fell for it, because of course she did. The crazy thing is she peddled it to the WSJ and they published it uncritically and “stand by their reporting”. https://www.gq.com/story/wall-st...
She could lay waste to the economy if she means anything she says. Don't you normally bitch about hyperbole? I submit that she's not demonstrably worse than Trump by that strandard. Depends how seriously you take her spending desires on top of what we have now. Yes I agree if she gets nothing she w...
Do we need one thread, let alone two on a backbencher freshman Congresscritter who isn't even a committee chair. Sure, why not? She has a mean social media game and that's about it. FFS, Bernie isn't going to sniff the nomination and I don't think dressing up Bernie as a pretty young woman will do ...
ACA was non trivial. The Democrats have been pushing for universal health care since the 1970s and ACA was the best they could get through their conference. This was a party white whale for my entire life and then some and they couldn't even get a public option (i.e. Medicaid/Medicare buy in on the...

Not to mention, the basic safety equipment, like a hood so that you don’t kill everyone in tour house with chemical fumes, will likely remain expensive because there’s zero mass demand for a home industrial hood to push prices down.
Do y'all remember the time someone (IIRC Ellie) posted some idiotic twitter complaint a la "Prescription glasses prove capitalism is evil, because people with poor vision must pay money if they want to see"? Of course it's a stupid argument which among other things confuses cause and effect. This i...

Also, even the best fast food burger and fries is best no more than 10 minutes off of the counter. The sad thing is Trump should be good at the stupid ceremonial shit like this and is still a garbage person.
The first step has to be that they don't get to veto all competition in local markets. The second step is probably something that allows national insurer pools. I don't know that you get there with just those things though. It's one reason I'm increasingly convinced you might need a system that use...
