Yup. Gonna have to start all over. Or pull something evil. I'm good at evil. Yup.


Not only is the Better Care Reconciliation Act dead; as of this afternoon, with three Republican women saying a very definite "up yours," so is Mitch McConnell's purely-for-appearances "plan" to repeal the Affordable Care Act and then write a replacement when Republicans get around to it. We wouldn't say the ACA is safe by any means, since now Donald Trump is once again talking about "letting ObamaCare fail," which means he'll push it out the closest Overton Window if he possibly can. But let's take a few minutes to enjoy some of the better reactions out there, starting with Trump his ownself. Here are some thoughts he twote this morning:

Yep, those darn unhelpful Democrats kept Republicans from passing a bill with majorities in the House and Senate. That's because we're magic, you see. And the way to fix losing a simple majority when you hold the majority? Get rid of the filibuster, which was never in play, and convince Americans to elect MORE Republicans who'll do them the favor of ending their health insurance. This man is smart!

Of course, Donald Trump also has a Twitter history, so credit to MSNBC producer Kyle Griffin for discovering today's episode of Donald Trump From The Past Contradicts Donald Trump Today, with this gem from September 26, 2012, with replies all from today:

That Party of Personal Responsibility sure is big on taking responsibility, huh?

A little later in the day, Trump explained that if you use special Trump Math, the majority actually won the day:

Doktor Zoom

Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.
