    this weekly would only point out to the voters that it is a partisan sham.   Doing it, let us say, up to half a dozen times before the election is much less obvious.  People are not stupid.  They don't like to be treated as such.  The House GOP has done so by all the votes on Obamacare repeal.  We need to be more judicious in how we use this admittedly partisan tool.

    I’ve said before, I will always work with anyone who is willing to make this law work even better. But the debate over repealing this law is over. The Affordable Care Act is here to stay. -- President Barack Obama

      Average voters don't really pay attention to inside baseball.  The reason voters clearly understand the Republican position is that Republicans are not afraid to make their political points.  

      Can't be subtle about these things, or the message really doesn't get across.  

      Shirley Chisholm was right. Our Republic is in deep trouble.
