Greg Dworkin recaps the ACA website news, including Norm Ornstein's latest on where the buck ultimately stops, and his predictions about how the traditional media are likely to cover the continuing story. Also: Chris Christie's weakness in the 2016 contest. A reminder that the water resources authorization bill under consideration in the House this week is the proper place for that Kentucky dam project to have been handled. Why did they rush it through in the CR to reopen the government when the proper bill was moving the next week? Jon Perr's "How Democrats helped Republicans save BushCare." Ari Berman's coverage of how the Texas voter ID law is discriminating against women! A conversation with CREDO political director Becky Bond, about how CREDO works, what moves them to action, and what they're up to right now. Alex Pareene takes a shot at the JPMorgan Chase settlement. And just to expand horizons a bit, a critique of Jeremy Paxman's interview with Russell Brand on the UK's Newsnight program.
