We're one step closer to Medicare for All.

TLDR: "I like the Special Olympics. They get 100 mil from outside donations, and we just gave billions more to billionaires. Those 5th and 6th yachts aren't going to buy themselves. Something had to give."

Yep, just another 5 or 6 years of Trump, or the rest of his life possibly. Then maybe we get some weak ass milquetoast democrat for a while. Then another wild swing to the right. Then maybe in 30-40 years people will finally have had enough, kill the rich, and then we can get medicare for all. It's coming! Someday, hopefully in our lives, but probably not.

What Catherine Rampell has been doing to Stephen Moore should be illegal.


Actually Moore's arguments might be the best indication of just how much Republicans have been arguing in bad faith. It's kinda hard to make monetary policy into a culture war, as they've done with health care and similar government programs. So mysteriously low rates are necessary during a Republican presidency and are the path to Weimar-like hyperinflation during a Democratic presidency.

Moore is an awful hack, and everyone knows it. He won't be turned down by the Senate because he's faithful to Republican interests. Maybe something like this will give the Senate a fig leaf though:
Quote:
Court records in Virginia obtained by the Guardian show Moore, 59, was reprimanded by a judge in November 2012 for failing to pay Allison Moore more than $300,000 in spousal support, child support and money owed under their divorce settlement.

Quote:
In a divorce filing in August 2010, Moore was accused of inflicting “emotional and psychological abuse” on his ex-wife during their 20-year marriage. Allison Moore said in the filing she had been forced to flee their home to protect herself. She was granted a divorce in May 2011.

But probably not.

And now Herman Cain.

I have to admit that I'm surprised by this. Nominating hacks for federal judgeships is one thing -- the Law is a joke anyway, so just get the guys on your side -- but bringing the insanity into the High Temple of the Fed is still a shock to me. The elite (and everyone else) have a huge stake in this job being done competently.

The Trump Presidency has been a shock to my theory of politics in that I figured the business community would use it's power to veto stuff like incompetent trade wars, but that really hasn't happened. Is it the higher priority put on getting tax cuts? A preference for corrupt government where executives have more scope to play influence games as they like? He's on the team, so it's cool? Not sure exactly what to make of it.

They can see the coming crash and they are in "protect their gains" mode. Growth is not a concern until after the crash. And they also see the rising resistance to Trumpism and they are scared and don't know what to do about it.
