We wanted to put "Trump's Lies" in print. @DLeonhardt and I needed an entire page to do it.

Trump is trying to make reality irrelevant.
New from me and @DLeonhardt: "President Trump’s Lies, the Definitive List"
Retweeted by David LeonhardtQ for comparative politics folks: Has any country ever repealed social benefits on the scale of the House/Senate bill Medicaid rollbacks?

Crazy idea: maybe Dems oughta still try for seats they lost not long ago (Midwest, upstate NY) rather than staking future on Sunbelt exurbs.
Retweeted by David LeonhardtAnd that maybe that belt from northern Maine to northern NY to western NY to western PA through Ohio & so on is worth another look for Dems.
Retweeted by David LeonhardtWhat that could suggest is that maybe just maybe the 2016 result is a bit of a false flag on where Dems should compete in 2018.

Retweeted by David LeonhardtThe weirdest thing to me about the GOP bill isn't the timing or the secrecy. It's that no major org in health care thinks it's a good idea.

Retweeted by David LeonhardtI very much hope all those wounded at Simpson Field fully recover. And all honor to those who acted with such courage at the scene.

Yep. But it's an ad from *Democrats*. Doctors and hospitals have more credibility on health care. Halfhearted Opposition to the G.O.P.’s Health Care Misery via @DLeonhardt

What has there been from your group beside written statements?Why aren’t health lobbies more active on AHCA fight? They don’t want to alienate GOP lawmakers, @DLeonhardt argues.
Retweeted by David Leonhardt all major health-care groups oppose the GOP bill. But they're being far too timid about their opposition. have covered every major health bill in Congress since 1986. Have NEVER seen anything like this.

Retweeted by David LeonhardtPOTUS told me he was tape-recording our conversations, too. Under oath, he had to admit that wasn't true:
Retweeted by David LeonhardtHow about 22 million? 15 million? 10 million? What's the ideal number of people losing coverage?
Retweeted by David Leonhardt
This is false. Senate Trumpcare is pretty much the same. About 14 million will still lose Medicaid coverage.

Retweeted by David LeonhardtPresident Trump doesn’t need to have committed obstruction to have done something very wrong, says @DLeonhardt.
Retweeted by David LeonhardtWow. This really is worth watching.
Retweeted by David LeonhardtEarly signs in Britain are quite intriguing for the Democratic Party: the young fought back.
Lots of echoes of the first episode of Borgen in #GE2017 results.Looks like @YouGov's forecasting model very close so far. They stuck their neck out, and faced deep scepticism from virtually every corner

Retweeted by David Leonhardt @jpodhoretz I was being playful not making a serious point. But I will read. @jpodhoretz Last refuge of journalists.Same in US. Comey and Obama likely act differently. So do many Stein voters and some Trump voters. Republicans are writing a bill to kick millions of people off of health insurance behind closed doors, with no public hearings.
Retweeted by David LeonhardtAmid Comey, don't lose sight of this: The Senate is showing more signs of taking health insurance from millions.
Retweeted by David LeonhardtTrump's disrespect for DOJ independence isn't new. Few got how dangerous it was in 2016 when he talked about prosecuting Clinton if he won.
Retweeted by David LeonhardtRosenstein did the right thing by naming special counsel. But his actions before that will permanently sully his on… months later, Comey did use the L-word.—@adamliptak found an example of obstruction of justice based on “I hope”!
