The Daily Combover - March 9, 2017

Don't get me wrong, I'm happy things have been a little slow the last few days. The healthcare discussions have sucked all the oxygen away from all the other crazy that we've seen over the past few weeks.

Of course healthcare has its own crazy. The latest of which is David Brat (R-crazier than Cantor). Today Brat whined about the filibuster and called on the GOP to discard it if necessary to pass the tax cut masquerading as a healthcare bill.

Side note: Jason argues that it goes beyond tax cuts. And after reading this, I agree.

The GOP may not care about people but they do care about stopping liberal gains in this country. And getting rid of the filibuster would be disastrous for them in that regard. Imagine how much President Obama would have accomplished had the Democrats not had to worry about a filibuster on every single routine vote they took from 2009 to 2016!

Trump's convinced that TrumpCare will not only pass, but be a beautiful picture:
I'm not exactly sure what he means by that, but if he's endorsing Medicaid or Medicare for all, sign me up.

In other news, we are nearing a conclusion on the Russian Interference in our election, and it's not looking good for Trump & Pals.  It's now a matter just a matter of when the final ball drops and Trump is directly connected to the hacking.  The lastest story is a tit-for-tat in which the Republicans dropped their opposition of Russian meddling in Ukraine presumably in exchange for the Russians dropping stolen Democratic files onto the Internet via Wikileaks.

I believe Trump will resign before the Democrats get a chance to carry out a penalty for the Interference, but I hope that either way the pee-tape is released.

We will keep you updated as the information drips in.

Catch you on the flip side.
