Instead, let's go into the weekend by recognizing a little bit of good news.
Down in the Rude Pundit's GOP-fucked home state of Louisiana, signups started Wednesday for the Medicaid expansion signed into existence by new Governor John Bel Edwards, a Democrat, in January. By the end of that first day, more than 175,000 people had enrolled.
That's nearly half of all the newly-eligible citizens of the generally backwards-ass state, and it's a goddamn triumph for the forces of decency over the fuckery of the cruel. And it's a reminder of how much work is needed to make life a little better for people who need their government to have their backs.
