Turns out all the jokes, at least so far, have been on us

An analysis of Republican effectiveness to date as to their campaign promises gets them a rating of a total screw up. Why is that? Is it because the GOP is just a slight shade of difference from the Democrats? that is highly probable. What is real is that they have been unable to deliver a single Congression campaign promise so far. I don’t see them getting any more mulligans before they are kicked out of the game.

Of course, last year I would have laughed at the idea of complete Republican control of government, so the idea of no legislative accomplishments would have been a joke not worth telling.

They were like the high-rolling poker player who’d just had his bluff called by a rank amateur – they’d painted themselves into a corner. Republicans always have been afraid of health policy as an issue, just as Democrats have little to say on national defense, because only a few actually know the details.

Republicans know how to complain about health policy – it’s not hard when the problems are so obvious. But few truly meant repeal because only a few truly believe the federal government shouldn’t be involved in controlling the health insurance industry. The rest think the government should “do something” to lower costs and don’t understand that this is not what happens when government gets involved.

In other words, they campaign a good game about the free market; they just have no idea what those words mean.

On immigration, it’s the same old thing – tough talk, then a slow dance where they try to….
