Instant History

As you read various opinion pieces to make sense of the debacle that was the failed attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare, you could do much worse than the Dan Balz column for the Washington Post. Balz really tries to hold down the leftward spin and describe what happened.

As you might surmise, "what happened" wasn't pretty. It leaves the GOP in a place that can please only Democrats.

Later ... for a less balanced, more "who can we blame for this abortion" approach, see a Breitbart quote of Rush Limbaugh on-air:
Collins, Murkowski, Capito – these three female leftists in the Republican caucus are running the Senate, not Mitch McConnell. (snip) Three liberal women who call themselves Republicans are running the Senate.
Okay, "running" is an exaggeration. What they're actually doing is preventing the Senate from transacting business.

The three represent, respectively, Maine, Alaska, and West Virginia. They deserve primary challenges next time they face the voters.
