      @johngordon That’s still an awesome autocorrect error.
      clarkgoble
        @johngordon Yeah, his dice comment suggests that. His ontology was basically Spinozist.

              So divisions and lack of leadership and existing plan means it’s huge problem with GOP with even higher costs. Again all foretold back during ACA battle.

                Said at time this would come back to haunt them. Made worse by their never coming up with a plan. Now have GOP President who is incompetent with no plan and no intention of helping organize congressional work on subject (unlike Obama).

                  This was inevitable. GOP used it for short term gains.→ All the ways Republicans went too far in the fight against Obamacare are coming back to bite them now: http://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2017/2/22/14700282/obamacare-death-panels-grassley

                      @johngordon fully agree but question is whether costs that come with GOP plan are worth it for Ds

                                  @johngordon I’m not sure. They might think strategically that it would help him leading to policy they dislike not to mention increasing chances of reelection. But we’ll see. T hasn’t show he can even handle GOP congress let along D congress.

                                    What gets called conservatism by the populist movements that brought Trump to the Presidency bears almost no resemblance to actual conservative principles which are usually rejected outright.

                                      Problem is that partially due to talk radio conservatism became warped into simply being a reactionary populist movement against liberals regardless of actual policy issue.

                                          @johngordon If Trump wants to do that look for him to push bill that Democrats would be hard pressed to reject.
