Three days ago, Congress moved forward with an act whose only conceivable outcomes were negative for the populace, and that circumvented any conceit of caring about governance. It was an act of “breathtaking hypocrisy” as the New York Times put it:
On Thursday, in a display of breathtaking hypocrisy, House Republicans — without holding any hearings or giving the Congressional Budget Office time to do an analysis — passed a bill that would strip at least 24 million Americans of health insurance.
Today, I made donation on CrowdPac to support Andrew Kim for New Jersey Third Congressional District. Kim has impressive bona fides, as a Rhodes Scholar who served on the National Security Council. Should he run, he’d be trying to unseat Tom MacArthur, who was a major driver of the Obamacare repeal in Congress and whose background is, get this, as an insurance industry executive. I have high hopes for Kim, despite MacArthur’s fundraising advantage.
