A Theft of Historic ProportionsA Theft of Historic Proportions

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 14:23:52 -0500

Eugene Robinson, Washington Post
WASHINGTON -- The "health care bill" that Republicans are trying to pass in the Senate, like the one approved by the GOP majority in the House, isn't really about health care at all. It's the first step in a massive redistribution of wealth from struggling wage-earners to the rich -- a theft of historic proportions.

Clare Foran, The Atlantic
Kansas. Montana. Georgia. South Carolina. A string of special election defeats in each state, and with each one, a missed opportunity to take over a Republican House seat, has left Democrats facing the question: Why does the party keep losing elections, and when will that change?

The hotly-anticipated Senate Republican health care bill came out on Thursday morning. The airwaves quickly filled up with predictable talking points from both sides. But once the dust settles, it will emerge that the Senate bill will have far-reaching effects on American health care: for the better.

Senator Mitch McConnell, USA Today
Seven years ago, Democrats imposed Obamacare on our country. By nearly any measure, it has failed and no amount of 11th hour reality-denying or buck-passing by Democrats is going to change the fact that more Americans are going to get hurt unless we do something.

Trump Hatred Doesn't Deliver Democrats Any VictoriesTrump Hatred Doesn't Deliver Democrats Any Victories

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 07:12:19 -0500

Fred Barnes, Weekly Standard
In April, Democrat Jon Ossoff got 48 percent of the vote in the special election to pick the new House member from Georgia's Sixth Congressional District outside Atlanta. He came in first but was forced into a runoff with Republican Karen Handel, who got 20 percent to finish second. In the runoff, Ossoff got 48 percent again and lost.How this happened is pretty simple. Ossoff needed to attract Republican voters to win. And there was a theory behind where he'd find them. Thousands of Republicans who loathe President Donald Trump would penalize their own party's candidate and defect to Ossoff....

Norm Ornstein, NY Daily News
Ronald Reagan’s favorite joke was about two young twin boys, one a congenital pessimist, the other a congenital optimist. Trying to cure them both, the father first took the pessimist into a room filled with every imaginable toy and game. The boy burst into tears: “I know you will take them all away from me, or they will break!” He then took the optimist to a room filled with horse manure and a shovel. The boy jumped on the manure and started to shovel away happily. The stunned father asked why. His son said, “There must be a pony in here somewhere!”

Can Heitkamp Win Again in Red North Dakota?Can Heitkamp Win Again in Red North Dakota?

David Byler, RealClearPolitics
If you were to ask nearly any political analyst or forecaster which Democratic senators are most vulnerable in 2018, Heidi Heitkamp would almost certainly be on their lists. The North Dakota lawmaker, elected by a narrow margin in 2012, has been performing a delicate balancing act: trying to work well with her co-partisans while keeping the electorate of her heavily Republican home state happy. So it’s worth asking -- when we talk about vulnerable Senate incumbents, why does Heitkamp’s name keep coming up?

While we have been focused on the results of special elections, the ups and downs of the Russia investigation and President Trump’s latest tweets, under the radar, a broad and consequential shift in U.S. foreign policy appears to be underway. Put simply, the United States is stumbling into another decade of war in the greater Middle East. And this next decade of conflict might prove to be even more destabilizing than the last one.
