Quote of the Day

Greg Sargent on Republicans sabotaging government:

It’s now become accepted as normal that Republicans will threaten explicitly to allow harm to the country to get what they want, and will allow untold numbers of Americans to be hurt rather than even enter into negotiations over the sort of compromises that lie at the heart of basic governing.

Sequester, debt ceiling, immigration, revenue, college loans, gun safety, climate change, infrastructure, education assistance, basic civil rights such as marriage equality and workplace protection, and any number of other things that keep us from turning into a hypocrisy-riddled third-rate shadow of ourselves.

We’re the ones who let them get away with it.
