Pre-Elon Twitter actually engaged in a fair amount of rule-bending to appease the Trump administration.
Joe, I love this newsletter and enjoy
it a lot. But, there's one glaring item
so many in blogs, newsletters and
mainstream news continue to get
100% wrong. Social Security and
Medicare are NOT "entitlements".
I started working when I was 15
and my employer began deducting
money from every paycheck for
both of these programs. I now
benefit from my working investment
in these programs because I'm
retired. They're actually investments.
The GOP making AOC look good! As they have for 4 years and counting.
Not that she needs the help, imo, but they make the contrast particularly stark.
The problem with congressional housing ideas is that “ NIMBY” would probably prevent it. One congress person would be ok, but a shelter of them would bring unwanted noise, crime , and corruption. Also think of all the streams of unsavory characters that it would attract.
Great reporting Joe, I am enjoying your column very much. There is going to be so much comedic material being produced by the house majority, I imagine you are having a good time. I watched some clips from this congressional hearing on the Meidas Touch on YouTube - the contrast between the silly unserious repubs and the smart dems was extreme.
Let me guess 🎪🤡
My comment addresses the cuts to social security , the contempt of mike Lee as he says " there'll be growing pains" . Seriously ?
I am 80, I've watched a lot of political coverage ; Rs have never been about helping people but the casual cruelty of this gang is breathtaking .
Thanks for sitting through that hearing so the rest of us didn’t have to!
You are good, Joe! Thank you!
Such odious women in the Republican party, and they have been on full display this week - between their peurile white trash behavior at the SOTU address and its response.
Best addition to the Bulwark! Love this newsletter!
Tonya Harding in a fur coat...
I would also like to say, seeing how Marge conducts herself on committees, that maybe it was a mistake to kick her off them a couple years ago.
Just think how much content we've been deprived of.
This was yesterday? Weird, it wasn't mentioned at all today over at National Review, huh.
It's not just that the gop has gone semi-fascist: it's the complete lack of interest in honesty that is the truly sickening component of modern gop behavior.
Regarding MTG's comment that she's in Congress - If you're explaining, you're losing.
