  1. The conservative Heritage Foundation proposed the individual mandate in 1993, and other aspects of the ACA, as a national policy. Link.
  2. Interesting, then, that the district has elected the conservative Democrat since (at least) 2005.
  3. You may recall that Obama's ACA was a centrist take on what had been a conservative idea.
  4. It's apparently a conservative-leaning district. A lot of Democrats thought that the odious Donald Trump's nomination guaranteed a Democratic victory in 2016. I could see a crazy far-right-wing Republican defeating a Bernie Sanders clone in a conservative majority-Dem district. I want to see Trump impeached, and positioning mainstream Democrats as a big-tent party makes that more likely.
  5. Link. As a centrist Democrat, I appreciate that the mainstream of my party is still in a "big tent" mode. Even though I disagree with this congressman on abortion and LGBT-rights issues, he at least contributes to the pending (I hope) Democratic majority in the House after the election this fall. And his Republican opponent? "His only Republican challenger, Arthur Jones, is a neo-Nazi Holocaust denier who has been disavowed by the GOP."
  6. How about the state laws that require abortion providers to provide information that may be medically dubious or outright false? Link.
  7. If he's been framed, then there must be smoking-gun evidence against him... fraudulent if it's a frame-up... but impeachable-offense grounds if true. So what's this alleged frame-up consist of?
  8. I can see why "tom-boy" girls would rather be in the Cub Scouts rather than the Brownies. When I was a young kid, there was a girl in the neighborhood who always hung out with us guys, was into guy-stuff, and was as good or better at sports. (There are probably effeminate boys who would prefer to be Brownies.)
  9. I just looked up the website, and you're right. Looks like a Scottish Hooter's. Haussner's servers were all no-nonsense 60+ year-old ladies from East Baltimore. I remember eating there one time and decided to order terrapin. The waitress asked if I'd ever had it before (I hadn't), and she instructed me, in no uncertain terms, to order something else.
  10. If the restaurant had a loyal following, I would think they'd give notice of closing, but stay open for a couple more weeks so the regulars could come in once more. I remember when Haussner's (sp?) announced that they'd be closing, they did a booming business for several weeks up until the closing date. (I've never heard of the Tilted Kilt, by the way, so comparisons to Haussner's are probably way off-base.)
  11. Les used to have a White House press pass, and he showed up at press conferences to aim off-the-wall questions at the press secretary. I gather he no longer has White House credentials.
  12. I know the lyrics. "Da dum dada, da dum dada, Maryland My Maryland".
  13. So the bill gives the lyrics an official designation - as the only statutorily recognized "historic state song". Seems like a weak effort if the intent was to de-certify the offensive lyrics.
  14. What could possibly go wrong with internet voting?
