This week on BTL, healthcare reform didn't get through before the holiday, but we're still worried about Mitch McConnell's evil plans to woo new GOPers to the cause. Trump, meanwhile, is so worried that he's changed his mind about his position yet again. On the Democratic side though, mind changes are a good thing! The writing on the wall is increasingly clear - Medicare for all is going to be a defining issue of 2020. All that plus Gorsuch being a problem already, a shake-up at Our Revolution, and Donald Trump's latest Twitter shenanigans.
This week on BTL, we get philosophical. Democracy as we knew it never really existed, wars rationale is in the eye of the beholder, and Michele Bachmann knows it all (according to her God). Plus, the Trump royal dramas begin (this is going to make a great TV show later), the House Intelligence Committee basically ends, and Alabama sends their sitting Governor, the "luv guv," to jail. Come for the news, stay for the sandal!
This week on BTL, we clicked our heels and the wicked AHCA is gone! The wicked AHCA is gone! What an adventure of a week, what a ride. What began with strong arm tactics on Monday devolved into bizarre pleas by Thursday and outright failure by Friday and we take you through the whole thing, step by step! BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE! We've got updates on the stories that didn't get the headlines this week - the odd Nunes revelations about Trump's dealings abroad, the Gorsuch hearing, and some terrible things that are happening to your privacy. Relive the glory of Paul Ryan's massive defeat (long time coming) with us!
This week on BTL, when will the powers that be agree that America has been through enough?! This week we did it all: re-lived the horrors of election 2016 in football form, re-lived the horrors of Antonin Scalia in Trump-SCOTUS-pick form, celebrated the alt-facts version of Black History Month (thanks white people for creating black history!), commemorated the worst imaginary terrorist attack to ever hit US soil (#NeverRemember), and accidentally thwarted a coup attempt by cleverly allowing a complete idiot to attempt a coup with any professional assistance. Though this week felt like seven months in thought-time, we can confirm that it's only been one week in real time and the fact that we made it through is certainly something to celebrate. Join the fun!
