The ability to govern has been lost
Here's the new news.
McCain to oppose Graham-Cassidy, likely sinking Obamacare repeal
When the Dems had it in 2009, even with their wheeling dealing (see Cornhusker Kickback) They still somehow jammed ACA through.
The Rethugs? They have the Congress, Senate and Potus. They also have the majority of State Govs and State Houses (Thanks BO).
And yet? They cannot legislate. They cannot pass a bill. They cannot "manage" 4 Senators. Hey Turtle, you fg finesser you, you actually suck at your job..
I really am not taking sides here. I am saying that our Republic is fucked. They, all of them, cannot govern. They are too scared, worried about campaign $$ and god forbid anyone actually votes by name on anything.
And yet the great unwashed masses keep voting these lifers in again and again and again.
Disclosure. My father died of a brain tumor. There is absolutely no fucking way how McCain is still in this. Hey, you just had a chunk of your brain carved out. Who the hell is telling him he is rational anymore? Why didn't he retire? My fathers first comments after surgery was that he admired the "magic boulders" hanging outside his hospital room window.
Insane. Just insane.
Y'a know, the Preppers are looking pretty prescient.
