The Extent of Republican Dishonesty

The GOP-offered AHCA bill that passed the the House May 4, 2017 was posted for twenty-four hours prior to voting. It was passed out of zero committees.

Buddhists call this sort of thing “direct learning:” elect lying creatures with the moral courage of hyena, suffer a greater suffering in future days. Not because of any cosmic justice, but rather because volition draws in that direction. Suffering begets more suffering.

Americans have another way of phrasing this concept: you reap what you sow, or, what goes around, comes around. It’s a little early for a victory lap.
