The Morning Report 1/24/17

Good morning, kids. Hope everyone who got hit by yesterday's nor'easter was not seriously affected. Anyway, lots of good links, but a couple in particular to note. First, RINOs Susan Collins and Bill Cassidy have introduced what is, by all appearances, a non-repeal repeal for Obamacare which allows states to actually have the option to keep the law in place.

“At some point in this process we’re going to need a bill where we get 60 votes,” Cassidy explained. “Now if you can say to a blue state senator who’s really invested in supporting Obamacare, ‘You can keep Obamacare, but why force it upon us?’ We think that helps us get to 60.”

Sounds like a crock of shit to me, and the 60 vote concern is the tell. To hell with the Democrats. We do not want compromise with them. We want to reverse the damage they caused. The GOP should use 51 votes and the reconciliation process to tear that thing out. Period. Full Stop. Anyway, I assume Team Trump is not on board with this. I hope not, but it does seem to indicate that revanchist, recalcitrant Republicans are perhaps trying to jump out in front and kneecap Trump. You decide for yourselves. And other than that, former Nazi collaborator and currency fraudster George Soros has a criminal enterprise that is engaging in sedition. I hope AG Sessions has a plan to take him down. Anyway, have a better one and remain blessed.

UPDATE: I changed the title of the Brexit link to better reflect the story.
