Mike's Blog Round Up
October 11, 2021

Naked Capitalism: Hospitals and doctors are waiting for billions of dollars in payments from major American health insurers.

Lawyers, Guns & Money: The Democratic Party may finally put an end to the unbearable whiteness of being first that is the Iowa Caucus.

Blue NC: Why would the North Carolina GOP want to investigate voting machines in Durham County? Well, if the hood fits…

Mad Kane: An ode to debt ceiling hostage takers.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
"I certainly don’t think any senators are rooting for a debt limit crisis that would put our full faith and credit at risk. So, I believe that every one of our colleagues wants this agreement to pass. That means every one of our colleagues should actually vote for it." (Mitch McConnell, July 31, 2019)
