Posting a Diary Entry
Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as
is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.
When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.
If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries
that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell can't help himself from telling inconvenient truths about Republicans' plans for repealing, and maybe replacing, the Affordable Care Act. On Sunday, he admitted that Republicans think the uninsured are a non-issue.
“If you thought it was a good idea for the federal government to go in this direction, I’d say the odds are still on your side,” McConnell told workers at the hospital, “because it’s a lot harder to undo something than it is to stop it in the first place.”
“I don’t think there is any bigger issue in the fall election except for the general effect of the economy,” McConnell said
Despite the futility of pushing repeal, there isn't a "bigger issue in the fall election." So even though McConnell readily admits that repeal isn't likely to happen, he'll be in full-throated support of undoing the signature achievement of President Obama. Because that is job one for McConnell. That and making sure those undeserving not-rich people don't get health care.
