GOP leaders and Mitt Romney’s campaign were making plans Friday for how to repeal ObamaCare now that the Supreme Court has rebuffed efforts to stop the key parts of it. Republicans and Democrats traded charges during the day about which group is being unfairly helped by the other side’s desires. It appears that Romney will make repeal of ObamaCare a centerpiece of his fall campaign, despite the fact that his own health care plan in Massachusetts was the model for the current law. Why would those who favor a free market trust either side in this debate?
- Republicans have found an usual ally in attacking Barack Obama. They’ve been able to get Hillary Clinton to say, “Shame on you, Barack Obama.” Well, they didn’t really get her to say it, but they found video of her saying it to her current boss when she was running against him four years ago.
- For those who follow college football — which includes some of the monkeys here in the bunker — there was big news earlier this week when the current national championship system was scrapped, replaced with a four-team playoff. Other major conferences were spooked into accepting a playoff by the indignity of watching two SEC teams play for the championship last year.
