why republicans failed to repeal obamacare


let me briefly try to answer this question: how did republicans fail to repeal and replace the affordable care act? in no order, and off the top of my addled mind at the end of a crushing week:- they hated obamacare but they never understood the affordable care act.this is the uber-explanation for much of what follows. hating obamacare became just what you did on the right. it didn't mean you understood it, beyond maybe getting that it was a government program and thus paid for by taxes. it certainly (and this turned out to be very important) didn't mean you had any ideas about what it did, how it worked or how many people were benefiting from it ... or how to replace it.- obamacare created a new baseline.it's hard to take away something — in this case, health insurance coverage for more t

fox news analyst uncorks wild new theory about obama using uk intel services to


so far, the trump administration has not produced any evidence to support the president’s claim that former president barack obama ordered american intelligence agencies to wiretap trump tower.on tuesday, fox news judicial analyst andrew napolitano offered a new theory as to why the trump team is having trouble finding proof for the president’s claims: it’s because obama used british spy services to snoop on trump.“three intelligence sources have informed fox news that president obama went outside the chain of command,” napolitano told fox & friends. “he didn’t use the nsa, he didn’t use the cia, he didn’t use the fbi, and he didn’t use the department of justice.”instead, napolitano alleges, obama relied on british intel agency gchq, which he notes has access to the american national secur

breath of the wild' patch addresses frame rate issues


nintendo released version 1.1.1 of the legend of zelda: breath of the wild for the nintendo switch to "make for a more pleasant gaming experience." that's not a particularly descriptive patch note, but early impressions show that noticeable frame rate issues have been mitigated, if not totally resolved.we noted in our hands-on with the switch that, although we didn't measure breath of the wild's frame rate, dips below its target 30fps were easily seen with the naked eye. to avoid story and gameplay spoilers, we'll say only that the frame rate tended to drop most often in specific locations or when combat involved more than one enemy. it certainly didn't ruin our experience with the game, but it was definitely notable, and sometimes distracting.revisiting some of those locations or entering






man acquitted of rape because woman didn't scream


rome -- italy’s justice minister has reportedly asked officials to look into a case in which a court acquitted a man of raping a woman because she didn’t scream. the italian news agency ansa said thursday that minister andrea orlando has asked ministry inspectors to begin checking into the case. ansa said a court in turin had ruled last month that the woman’s saying “enough!” to her colleague who allegedly raped her constituted too weak a reaction to prove that she was sexually attacked. the ruling specified she didn’t scream or ask for help. center-right forza italia opposition lawmaker annagrazia calabria decried the ruling, saying, “certainly, you cannot punish the personal reaction of a woman terrified by what is happening to her.” the ruling has also triggered an outcry by women’s gro
