he utter failure of congressional Republicans to replace Obamacare two weeks ago was a good thing. The U.S. House Republican plan would have thrown an estimated 24 million Americans off coverage over 10 years while handing tax cuts to the wealthy and a bonanza to insurers.The failure speaks to at least two realities and offers a slender ray of hope.

That's how Governor Jay Inslee describes the Republican plan to replace the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) with the American Health Care Act (go ahead and call it "Trumpcare").

During today’s House Intel Committee hearing, Democratic Congressman Denny Heck said that the evidence they’ve all heard today leads him to conclude that Russia “had help from the inside”:…that this was in part an inside job from U.S. persons, willing American accomplices or terribly naive ones, or probably both, who helped the Russians attack our country and our democracy.
