In other news, Senator Marco Rubio apparently missed a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing today so he could announced his next run for president in 2024. Business as usual.

Meanwhile, Speaker Paul Ryan unveiled his Obamacare replacement this morning which isn't so much a plan as it is a collection of dead talking points.

Finally, House Democrats and a handful of Senate Democrats led by John Lewis are currently holding a sit-in on the floor of the House to protest the lack of a vote on gun control. Republicans shut off C-SPAN's cameras, but C-SPAN is covering live-streaming video the congressmen and women themselves are taking. You can watch it there or at the #NoBillNoBreak hashtag.

Programming note... I feel like roadkill and can't focus on anything today so I'm signing off a bit early.

    Gun control has no prayer of passing through legislative channels until we control both houses with filibuster-proof majorities.

    What we really need is to win the next election and get ourselves one or two more of those “activist judges” on the supreme court so we can go back a reasonable interpretation of the 2nd Amendment.
