For fun, here is the editorial:
Trying to bludgeon Obamacare out of existence is a perversion of the democratic process. And should the Republicans feel that their dangerous game-playing is rewarded, imagine how they will be emboldened when, just weeks from now, it comes time to raise the nation’s debt limit — in other words, to pay the nation’s bills, most of them racked up by previous Congresses and Presidents.
It once was a standard responsibility. It is fast becoming, like everything else, scorched earth.
Obama had it exactly right late Monday: “You don’t get to extract a ransom for doing your job.”
Again, this is a coup attempt, and it is supported and bankrolled by criminals.
