Breathe, celebrate and recover

Breathe, celebrate and recover as you worked your asses off over the past year. Phone calls, story telling, organizing, demonstrating, encouraging, sheltering and recovering as others took your place when you needed a breather. Good job.

And yes, there are administrative attack angles. Section 1115 waivers that have work requirements and then whatever Idaho is trying to do are the two that are more likely to reduce coverage. So be ready again, but today, celebrate.

    I’m proud of y’all. Yes we did. :)

    But I’m worried about DACA. We haven’t seen any big rallies, townhall protests, office stakeouts like we did for Obamacare. Where did the energy go?

    Two appalling things about the first sentence of Steve Benen’s mini-report today:

    Today’s school shooting: “A 12-year-old girl was taken into custody after two students were shot inside a classroom at a Los Angeles middle school on Thursday, authorities said.

    I’m pondering whether some pro-Dem superPAC will run ads this fall (say on conservative talk radio) about how Republican incumbents failed to kill Obamacare. I’d sure think about it if I were in the superPAC business.

    Yeah. I’m pretty sure we’ve heard this “Republicans-are-giving-up-on-repealing Obamacare” line before.

    @Thoroughly Pizzled: I think health care has a broader effect and appeal compared to DACA.

    What they really wanted was to take money out of subsidies and Medicaid so they could push more money to Corps and the .01%ers in the tax cut bill.

    Since they couldn’t, they just accepted a massive debt increase and screwed Blue State Republicans, who will have to settle for lobbying sinecures as a reward.

    @Gin & Tonic: I’ve heard that Wilmer will made president by acclimation prior to 2020; winning an election not required.

    Which is lucky for him, because 2020 is Baud/Poco’s year.

    I want to see the statistics for how many are murdered by immigrants versus just the unremarkable mass killing by your average Trump voter.

    @Balconesfault: Yes indeedy. Where are the ads about how the national debt is being biggered thanks to tax cuts for the 1%?

    Given that the last Big! Scary! Rampage! by an illegal immigrant turned out to be a poor homeless schlub who didn’t realize that the t-shirt he picked up was wrapped around a loaded gun that went off accidentally and killed someone via ricochet, I think “infinitesimal” is the word you’re looking for.

    Not until every one of those fuckers is dead or in jail. (h/t John Prine) Because until every one of those fuckers is out of power, they will keep trying to fuck over America.

    Why, yes, my day has not been particularly fun — why do you ask?

    In storage until the next Dem Congress or President.

    There’s a better chance of an actual Saint Bernard getting elected in 2020.
