Free Parking - Hell is empty and all the devils are here

This is my first column back after the holiday break. Thanks for reading
http://eureka.news/free-parking-61/

Snip

Grover Norquist must be delighted, though. He famously said that he wanted the government to be so small you could drown it in a bathtub. He almost has his wish. Republicans have raged against government since Barry Goldwater and derided its usefulness since Ronald Reagan, leaving ordinary Americans confused as they continue to rely on its very necessary services.

While Social Security checks will be sent out on time, many other government programs we rely on will go unfunded. SNAP is scheduled to run out of funds in February, heating help is gone, and government employees forced to work during the shutdown will not get paid again this week.

Republican senators have all lined up behind Trump to keep our government closed and ineffective in order to diminish the authority of the House of Representatives. (Really, could all of them have taken Russian money and are trying to escape accountability?)

4. He popped up on twitter the other day

when AOC was proposing 70% marginal rate. He pretended that it was a flat rate and compared it to slavery. I love twitter because I got to tell him what a shit he is (in a more nuanced way.)
