Sure, Republican voter suppression tactics have evolved. (I’ve noted the particular irony of their efforts to keep Native Americans from voting, since they’re the only Americans who aren’t immigrants.)
And, sure, Republicans have spent four more years sabotaging the Affordable Care Act rather than proposing anything to improve or replace it.
But if you updated it all, the conclusions would be the same.
The only important difference is that this time, with a sociopath unchecked in the White House, our democracy itself is in peril.
Quote of the Day
Money is a singular thing. It ranks with love as man’s greatest source of joy. And with death as his greatest source of anxiety. Over all history it has oppressed nearly all people in one of two ways: either it has been abundant and very unreliable, or reliable and very scarce.~John Kenneth Galbraith, The Age of Uncertainty
