I think the Dems have finally figured this all out. They bashed their heads against the "bi-partisan" wall for over a year back in the ACA days and got nothing but a headache. (Well, we did get the ACA in the end but one wonders what that bill might have looked like had them Dems not negotiated away good policies in an attempt to get the batshit crazies on board.)
Fool us once, shame on you. Fool us twice, shame on us.
