A political earthquake shook D.C. last week with the upset primary defeat of GOP Majority Whip Eric Cantor of Virginia. Cantor, who outspent his oppo...
The truth is that the ACA, even if it falls short of its promises, won't do nearly as much damage to this country as the Iraq War. Analyzing the GOP's reaction to both will give you a good idea of its priorities.
