In politics, it is terrible for a party to be defined by what it stands against rather than what is stands for.

Anneke Green, RCP
Getting rid of Obamacare was one of Donald Trump’s key campaign commitments. Several Republican senators said this week they would not vote to support various forms of dealing with the controversial law. Political commentators have construed the announcements as another indictment of the president’s leadership. Yet this interpretation ignores the fact that congressional Republicans have built their majorities on promises to repeal the Affordable Care Act. If they fail, it’s not Trump who will be blamed by voters.

hese are the worst of times for the American news media, but they are also the best. The newspaper industry as a whole has been dying slowly for years, as the pathetic tale of the once-mighty Chicago Tribune reminds us. But for the handful of well funded journalistic enterprises that survive, the Trump era is turning out to be a “golden age” – a time of high purpose and moral vindication.

Conservatives support the repeal of Obamacare, but moderate Republican establishment leaders do not. Guess what? Obamacare is not being repealed.

The wall has not only not been funded, but it is not being built either. Conservatives support tax reform, but, again, moderate Republican establishment leaders do not. Guess what?

Caitlin Huey-Burns, RealClearPolitics
Six months into a long-awaited Republican administration with no major legislative accomplishments to show for it, GOP leaders in Congress are anxious to get a move on—so much so that senators are preparing to vote next week on a motion to proceed on a health care measure without knowing, exactly, what it will entail. Waiting for all the details ahead of time, Majority Whip John Cornyn told reporters, is a "luxury we don't have."

We drop friends all the time for a whole variety of reasons—they messed with our loves lives, they lied, they weren’t supportive—so why do some people think it’s such an outlandish idea to dump them for their political views? I think there’s a misguided sense that, “It’s a free country and people have the right to believe what they want. Why should I let their political opinions interfere with a long-running friendship?” The truth is, there is no law that “free speech” means you have to keep a friend who promotes the Republican...
