That's what made it so fun to be a conservative. Now it's just equality for all, blah blah blah.
In a way, Kerry's affinity with a now-moribund elite goes beyond style. Trying to resolve conflicts in the Middle East, investing time and energy on dealing with Iran, or schmoozing with the Russians, seem like parts of an outline for a plot of a movie from the 1970s or '80s.
The healthcare train has left the station, albeit with some struggles. And there will be other hurdles ahead for the law. But, as more Americans see the options that are available to them, they will understand the true significance of Obamacare. And then they will be "addicted to the sugar!"
While we continue to fight, it does appear that ENDA will not become law this year. That brings us to the role of the president.
Let's accept the premise that U.S. federal debt is out of control and cannot be reined in by efficiency in the health care sector. The way the government is cutting the deficit is the absolutely, objectively worst way the government could cut the deficit.
Republican House Speaker John Boehner, a shill for Big Tobacco and the Koch brothers, said on November 4th that he would block passage of the Employme...
Ladies and gentlemen, one cannot provide true reform, change we can believe in, or dramatically improved health care with bills that are insurance industry productions, passed with political payoffs, compromising our highest ideals.
I would love to live in a country where the next time any Republican mentions "Benghazi," just one lonely reporter says, "You know, you people have been screaming 'Benghazi' like some kind of demented mantra for over a year now. Benghazi was a tragedy, to be sure, but let's put it in some kind of perspective, shall we?"
The ACA actually does make it possible for people to keep their coverage -- unless the insurance company decides to stop offering it.
In the maelstrom of the shutdown, a debt-ceiling suicide attempt and the cutting off of nutrition support for poor people by Congress, it's clear that America's political class has unbounded belief in national stability.
Focusing on how the handling of the shutdown affected, or did not affect, the vote this week ignores a more potent way in which it is impacting Republicans: making voters less likely to be Republicans in the first place.

Oh, and the Obamacare website sucks and Kim & Kanye got engaged. Whew! It's been quite a week.
The truth these politicians want to obscure is that Obamacare is protecting their constituents from buying coverage that provides little to no shield against financial ruin. And that protection is something the insurance industry wants to get rid of.
Regardless of how articulate his summation was, and regardless of how much I enjoy his comedy, Brand is not a part of the solution; in fact it's quite the opposite.
