It's Monday, but you probably didn't notice, because of this one chart that tells you everything you need to know. Greg Dworkin starts off the roundup with gubernatorial news: McAuliffe fights to expand Medicaid, while Walker & Christie fight off investigators and try to stay viable. Henry Paulson is determined not to miss the rise of another crisis, this time on climate change. Running out of reasons to oppose the ACA, Republicans are finally down to the last one: we have to pay money for a public benefit. "Who Says Obama Can't Lead?" Had you heard that "gun nuts are terrorizing America"? Probably not. Another profile of Tea Party Patriots' Jenny Beth Martin's lifestyle enhancement success. A federal judge has (briefly) put a stop to the lethal combination of science denialism & the Hobby Lobby theory of "religious freedom." And what's "religion" these days, anyway, given that churches are raffling off AR-15s?
