WaPo has a good article on the House's Judiciary Committee.

They say there could be verbal brawling. The Repugs will try all manner of ways to tie up, derail the hearing tomorrow.

Rep Jerry Nadler (on the progressive side) (and was my Rep years back) tends to give a freer hand to his committee. I guess we'll see if he changes that some.
He also has been a nemesis of Trump for decades.

I guess we'll see.

Nice to be reminded today that Liz Cheney is still trash. What a disgusting tweet.

She can’t help it, it’s genetic in that family.

So true. I don't think there has ever been a candidate that has risen to a significant lead in Iowa while being so far back in the national polls. This will make it interesting.

I'm guessing that Harris' support will probably float mostly to Biden, Pete and Amy, maybe some Warren.

US Politics XVII: Yes, squid pro row

Right, so I get that people without insurance pay huge amounts, as do people with crappy insurance pay slightly less huge amounts, but given that more than 90% of the population has insurance, and some of it very good — I never have a prescription more than $10, or pay more than a $20 copay, I once had a $40,000 hospital stay that was mostly covered and I paid $2k, things change after you meet a deductible, standard of care is top notch — it is wildly misleading to think that these numbers are the same for everyone.

I get it’s funny and it’s making a point, but it’s also eye rolling in it’s working assumptions.

that's great that 90%+ of people have insurance and that you aren't required to pay that kind of life-crippling money for treatment.

the point is that there is a large group of people out there who are uninsured (10ish% of the population of the US is something like 35 million people, and the vast majority of those are people who can't afford private insurance or are too ill already to qualify) and who do indeed have to pay exorbitant costs and make impossible choices like that, who would otherwise be covered for the majority of those costs under a system like the NHS. how is it morally justifiable to simply leave that many of the poorest people in the country to their fate just because they dont have (or can't work) a job that offers them coverage and they don't get paid enough to afford their own policy, in a country that could quite easily afford to pay for it?

I realize and don’t disagree. I just think the impression given is a false one, as if that’s the standard rather than the exception — trolling is still trolling.

It was a group of garbage people making fun of someone who is vile and the worst of the worst.
