Trying to head off a huge mistake:

This is sounding more and more like organized crime, not "school choice":

The never-ending battle continues:

In case you haven't been paying attention, women are slowly (but surely) losing this war. If you're a state (or Federal) candidate and women's reproductive freedom is not in your top five platform issues, you need to do some re-arranging. Pronto.

Just a friendly reminder:

I am running for local office (again) this year, and hoping our voter turnout is closer to 20% instead of the barely 10% we got last time. It's hard to believe people could be so disinterested in their own community, but there it is. Take the time to get to know who's running in your local election, and what their priorities are. Because by the time something stupid gets done and shows up on your radar, it's probably too late.

Wanton abuse of power:

It's not like this was a "secret" feud, we've known about it for some time now.

But because of the Obama administration’s efforts to prop up Obamacare’s small group and individual markets, most Association Health Plans were effectively dismantled in 2011.

It is a fantasy, and tightening regulations had nothing to do with "propping up" Obamacare, and everything to do with stabilizing health care markets and shielding people from rampant bankruptcies:

Only the best people:

That won't stop Burr & Tillis from gushing about her "long and distinguished career," or some such nonsense.

The ripples from this are still spreading across the political pond:
