End of the week, beginning of the month, same old garbage fires—actually they just seem old because you listen to David Waldman and KITM, so you know stuff early.
For instance: Yikes! and Duh! Who’dve thunk Hannity and Drudge would run Russian propaganda accusing Democrats of satanic practices and supporting rape? Hey, maybe the Gop wants to bust the budget so they have more leverage in reengineering society? Republicans have enough votes to pass their tax scam bill, but they didn’t last night. Is the lack of regular order to blame for slowing down the process, or is there any legitimate process left to slow? Well, supposedly there is still PAYGO and reconciliation. David explains reconciliation and the Byrd Rule—no not the Byrd Rule, but the “Conrad Rule” which used to be a thing, and people still confuse the two.
