For Now

I know it’s not over, but what a relief that this week of Senate voting/posturing is over. High drama last night as three GOP senators broke ranks. Skinny repeal was a ridiculous way for the GOP to try to put a checkmark in the win column. 

It all hinged on trying to get the House to pinky swear that they wouldn’t pass the legislation that the Senate wanted to pass.

Hey, I have an idea. How about you craft some decent legislation in the first place? You know, the kind that gets bipartisan support and doesn’t rely on a knife’s edge margin? 

For now, at least, we can thank Sens. Collins, Murkowski, and yes, McCain. That guy has a way of flip flopping between hero and evil villan to the public, huh?
