BAD PAULIE GETS SPANKED: Hey, hey, my, my, couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.
The "zombie-eyed granny starver from Wisconsin" and full-bore Koch/ALEC operative was so intent on getting his middle-of-the-night, kill-the-poor "Ryan(Doesn't)Care" replacement for ObamaCare to the House floor that he didn't notice all the warning signs--most ominously, that congresspeople from hyper-red districts that had voted heavily Trump were suddenly abandoning Ryan(Doesn't)Care in droves because their constituents were threatening full-fledged revolt over losing their health insurance coverage.
Yes, I see the irony. Hard not to.
But if this is what it took to make the American people wake up to Ryan's endgame (and that of all other ALEC lackeys), it was worth it. Nothing like realizing that you've got some skin in the game--pun intended.
Now Ryan is disgraced before the entire country and especially his own party, who have been made to see what a grub-for-hire he really is (and that he has no one's welfare in mind but his own). Of course, I've been saying that all along. But, well.
The New York Times editorial board says it all in this towering recent opinion piece.
