Greg Dworkin walks us through the RAND Corp. insurance rate data, points to the blurred lines dividing the Tea Party and the "mainstream" Gop, and brings us some conservative yargle bargle that reminds us that it's Jeb Bush's "reasonableness" act that makes him unacceptable to the base, with a guest appearance by old-school "notch babies." Joan McCarter remembers that issue, too. She also notes that the ACA might save you money on car insurance, too. Which is great if your car is infested with spiders! We check in on the non-happenings in Obamacare replacement, immigration reform, and unemployment insurance, have an additional laugh at Vance McCallister, and shake our heads at the Iowa Republican who apparently credits Obama's black privilege with saving him from certain impeachment. Just to throw a little substance in the show, we look ahead to the House vote on the Ryan budget and why, once again, they anticipate dissension in the ranks.
