RantsOutload on the state of the two-party system

Not since the downfall of the Whig Party in the 19th century has there been more turmoil in the major parties. Both are heading in strange directions. Infighting happens daily and in a very public manner. There seems to be no sanity left in either major party.

@RantsOutloud, the personality behind the Adrian Slade Show, made a comment that found its way into visual perpetuity through social media.

This is Whig Party implosion 2.0… only happening to both parties for the same reasons. They both are clinging to control. One party has given into its new base and shoved out its moderates and the other is purging its core.

Chuck Schumer threatens Obamacare fix over GOP tax bill repealing individual mandate

Chuck Schumer went after the GOP’s proposed tax plan today, saying the bill the Democrats currently support to bail out Obamacare, Alexander-Murray, will not get their support if Obamacare’s individual mandate is repealed.

“Any Republican senator who thinks they can pass the individual mandate and then turn around and get Alexander-Murray passed is dead wrong.”

The Senate Minority Leader has supported the plan to save the Affordable Care Act, but is now holding it hostage to try to preserve the individual mandate that forces millions of Americans to pay for health insurance they don’t want.

Chuck Schumer: Democrats won’t back Alexander-Murray if Obamacare individual mandate is repealed

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/chuck-schumer-democrats-wont-back-alexander-murray-if-obamacare-individual-mandate-is-repealed/article/2640780Republicans on Tuesday added repeal of the individual mandate, which requires Americans to purchase health insurance or pay a fine, to their tax overhaul bill. Senate GOP leaders also said that if it were to pass, they would also be willing to take up a bipartisan bill known as Alexander-Murray, which includes payments to insurers and flexibility for states. The proposal was meant to win over centrist Republicans, who worry about some of the projections from the Congressional Budget Office showing that 13 million more people would be uninsured in a decade if the individual mandate were to be repealed.

Ron Johnson on the paradox of tolerance

Senator Ron Johnson from Wisconsin gave a very sobering speech at the Newseum in Washington D.C. Monday. In it, he detailed the very serious issues we’re facing in society today, issues that are unique to our time and that require us to reexamine how we handle certain situations. Specifically, he called it all a “paradox of tolerance.”

“America is a very tolerant society, we value that … but in this new era, in this new phase, with this new threat to national security, we really need to ask ourselves very serious questions,.”

Ron Johnson: Our tolerant society is facing a ‘paradox’ in this terror threat

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/ron-johnson-our-tolerant-society-is-facing-a-paradox-in-this-terror-threat/article/2640564“America is a very tolerant society, we value that … but in this new era, in this new phase, with this new threat to national security, we really need to ask ourselves very serious questions,” Johnson said at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. “How much can we really tolerate? Understanding that paradox of tolerance — if we tolerate too much, our tolerance itself will be ended.”

Johnson said the U.S. must be “relentless” in the pursuit of stopping extremists, even after heavy territory losses from the so-called Islamic State.

GOP strategist Alex Castellanos blames Trump for Democrats victories

For something to be made great again, it would have had to have been great at some point before. That’s tough criteria for the Democratic Party to meet, but it didn’t stop GOP strategist Alex Castellanos from making an absurd statement during “This Week” on Sunday.

He blamed President Trump for empowering and energizing the Democrats and pointed to losses in mostly blue states last Tuesday as examples of Trump’s effects on the party.

“Donald Trump has made the Democratic Party great again.”
