While neo-Nazis and garner wall to wall media coverage, we can’t help but wonder what happened to the endless promises of an Obamacare repeal.

What’s happening with Obamacare repeal, you ask? That is a fantastic question. But at this point, it’s quite clear that Republicans who campaigned on repealing the ACA have zero intention of doing so now that the opportunity has presented itself.

The entire country needs a lesson in parliamentary procedure.

As I blogged yesterday, Senate Republicans, with the assist of Vice President Pence finally cobbled together enough votes to pass a motion to proceed (MTP), which simply allowed for debate on proposed Republican health care reform.

One of my favorite things to come out of the Republican ObamaCare flailing is Kemberlee’s term for it:  a cluster. It is that.  But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell reportedly has one card left up his sleeve, and he intends to use it next week: force his caucus to record for...
