Ups & Down

Charlie Pierce is reporting that Paul Ryan is talking about retiring. Gee, why would the Speaker of the House retire? It couldn’t have anything to do with the proof that Trump can’t even get a win in Alabama. If 2018 is the blood bath for the GOP that it currently appears will be the case, this was probably going to be Ryan’s last year as Speaker.

The other up note for me is Marco Rubio says ‘no’ to the tax plan. Trump says that Rubio will come around, but Trump has lost his power to influence Congresscritters. Rubio wants to stay in the Senate, and the current version of the conference bill won’t do it.

As expected Ajit Pai rolled over and played dead for his ISP masters and voted to eliminate Net Neutrality. The States of New York and Washington are suing over the decision and other groups are attempting to get Congress to fix this problem once and for all.
