Chris Graham: Throw healthcare reform out with the bathwater

We all get it. The Obamacare website isn’t working. Nice pound of flesh with the visuals at the congressional hearing the other day.

Perpetually rising healthcare costs that affect all of us, so what.

Winners/Losers: #TheShutdown

The Republican brand has taken a huge hit. The Senate, in play in the 2014 cycle, now seems a stretch. The House, safe in 2010 and 2012 due to state-level gerrymandering, is now in play for Democrats, in the lead big-time in generic congressional polling.
