    Good lord...so half the country rejects East Coast Liberals Cuomo would be trolling them a bit hard

    Look, so we're clear I'm still in Warren's corner here, but in terms of who's setting themselves up the best Cuomo's doing himself a lot of favors thus far.

    This is weird because I'm not actually in Warren's corner for the presidency. She would be amazing on fiscal policy and regulation but she has absolutely zero experience on anything else and that's a hole big enough for even Trump to drive through.

    If I am a top tier Democratic candidate I sit down with Warren and say if you endorse me I will fill all of the following positions with anyone you choose:

    - Director, OMB
    - Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy
    - Secretary of the Treasury
    - Secretary of Commerce
    - Secretary of Labor
    - Assistant to the President for Economic Policy
    - Director, National Economic Council
    - Chairman, Council of Economic Advisers

    Re: The PPACA Thread Part V: Doctor! Doctor! Give me the news!

    With Warren right now because I think she has the smarts and drive to tackle some of the thorniest domestic problems facing the country, from regulation to moving the ACA forward to tax/budget matters. Sort of the nitty gritty stuff that ends up making a big difference. I've given up on expecting well rounded experience to matter to voters after the Trump election....

    Now mind you I reserve the right to change my mind! I see the possible 2020 candidates as Warren, Uncle Joe maybe, Cuomo, some random Senator trying to pull an Obama, Termed out Gov with nothing else to do (played by Martin O'Malley in 2016 - Hickenlooper maybe?), and Lefty Rich Guy With No Political Experience (Zuckerberg, Cuban, etc).

    Dems haven't nominated a governor since 1992 so its been a while.

    I'm going with some random Senator trying to pull an Obama. Harris / {gravely voiced military dude*} would be great. The Castros are probably still not ready for prime time. Booker will try but Occupy / Bernie / I will hang Goldman around his neck.

    I love the contrast between what a woman and a man would hate to lose.

    It's mawkish and manipulative and sexist and stupid and it's PERFECT for the average voter.

    It also would only add up to a few hours of hospital care.

    And yes, it would tug at the heartstrings of middle America.

    Senate is going to send their bill straight to the CBO and won't release the draft of it publicly.

    If he bought the truck after the wedding then they bought it together.

    But yes, that was a very good line.

    Good old GOP. They went ape**** on Democrats for Obamacare and that was way way way way way more open a process than this BS. Can't they ever do anything without being a hypocrite?

    The Senate has banned media from interviewing members in hallways of the US Capitol about their secret health care bill, presumably because it is so good.

    From Amy Klobuchar's Facebook:

    Today in Washington: A few hours ago we heard (from reporters!) that TV reporters were being kept from reporting in the Senate hallways. As the ranking member on the Rules Committee, I had not been consulted and I immediately called on the Republican majority to follow common practice and allow the reporters to do their jobs. Then I talked to Senator Shelby, who is the chairman of Rules. He said he wouldn't move forward on change to press access without consulting me. We must hold him to it. This is no time for limiting press access in the U.S. Senate -- with Russia hearings, Sessions testifying & what appears to be the secretive drafting of a healthcare bill. We have to preserve freedom of the press.

    Re: The PPACA Thread Part V: Doctor! Doctor! Give me the news!

    This is heating up. The 13 panel of old white men are looking for 50 Senators to pass their bill site unseen. According to one pundit Turtle Boy was being evasive when he wouldn't answer the question, "will we have 10 hours to offer amendments"? Also, pundit says there will be a CBO score before the vote.

    Glory be.

    Meanwhile every Republican who said a bad thing about the by comparison vastly open Obamacare process can go **** themselves.

    This is what I was saying last week. (WaPo had an article about it as Sessions was testifying) The bill is so bad they literally wont let their own caucus read the whole thing for fear they might leak it. All indications are though that the moderates that GaryJohnsonSuperfan#1 was telling us about on the GOP side all lost big time. (as in they caved McCain-style) The cuts to Medicaid not only stayed in, they might be deeper than before.

    I don't think that's might. All reporting has them cutting Medicaid deeper. They go after entitlements now to pay for their tax cuts. I'm guessing Social Security and Medicare right now are political suicide but Medicaid is open game. They're hedging their bets that most Medicaid recipients don't vote. And they're likely right.

    They are hedging their bets hoping most Medicaid recipients are minorities...they are wrong. They should have learned this lesson when old white people even in the South were attacking Reps for voting on the ACHA...but the Senate doubled down instead.
