The Republican health care bill would bring immediate pain for future gain—a recipe that promises to satisfy no one, just like Obamacare.
How did an ostensibly ‘technical’ amendment end up withdrawing refundable tax credits from up to seven million veterans?
This type of ‘pass-it-to-find-out-what’s-in-it’ mentality birthed Obamacare, and is the reason the conservative base increasingly despises their party.

Philadelphia’s soda tax should influence the conversation over the endless spiral of taxing and spending in America’s mismanaged, one-party big cities.
