Mike's Blog Round Up
November 6, 2018

Mainly Macro: What’s happening to health care spending in the UK?

Booman Tribune: Will Election Day bring Democratic gains in state legislatures?

Lawyers, Guns and Money: Should anyone be surprised that gutting the Voting Rights Act immediately led to the gutting of voting rights?

Informed Comment: Could Trump’s new sanctions against Iran be any more comically counterproductive?

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
"If some of these folks think that it's time to launch a war [against Iran], they should say so. And they should explain to the American people exactly why they would do that and what the consequences would be. Everything else is just talk." (President Barack Obama, March 6, 2012.)
