Paul Waldman quotes

Apr 14 2017

I have a tax day tradition, in which on or about April 15th I write a column (here’s an example) explaining why we should be thankful for what our taxes fund, and that we’re taxed at an unusually light rate compared to other countries.feedback

Apr 13 2017

Nobody ever said that Donald Trump was a man of firm principle. Indeed, apart from a couple of rancid ideas about race and foreigners, one struggles to find anything Trump has consistently believed over the course of his life when it comes to political issues.feedback

Apr 12 2017 - Republican Party

Yesterday in Kansas, in a congressional district that Donald Trump won by 27 points, Republicans managed to eke out a win in a special election by less than seven points. And in the special election in a GOP-held Georgia district next Tuesday, a first-time Democratic candidate, Jon Ossoff, has raised a huge amount of money, leads in the polls, and could win the seat outright in the first round of voting (if he gets to 50 percent and avoids a runoff).feedback

Apr 10 2017 - Chemical warfare

President Trump is still basking in the glow off his strong, resolute, manly decision to launch missiles at a Syrian air base in order to punish Bashar al-Assad for a chemical weapon attack on the town of Khan Sheikhoun.feedback

Apr 07 2017 - Chemical weapons

Allow me to ask an uncomfortable question: If you were in a war zone, and the government dropped a bomb on your house that killed your entire family, would you say, “It could be worse - at least they weren’t killed with chemical weapons”?feedback

Apr 06 2017 - Russian probe

A month ago, Rep. Devin Nunes was a semi-anonymous member of the House of Representatives, with no national profile and little to distinguish him from his 434 colleagues. But today, he’s the most visible manifestation of the the comprehensive and at times comical effort by the administration, Republicans in Congress, and the conservative media to protect Donald Trump. And it all happened because of a couple of inane and false tweets the president sent.feedback

Apr 05 2017 - Chemical weapons

Ask any conservative about what they objected to in former president Barack Obama’s foreign policy record, and the first words out of their mouth will be “RED LINE!” They’ll tell you that Obama was weak and feckless, and that his unwillingness to attack Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad’s government after it used chemical weapons on civilians in 2013 sent a message to the world that the United States wouldn’t stand up for its principles or follow through on its threats.feedback

Apr 04 2017 - Russia

If you’re an ally (let alone an employee) of Donald Trump, the ever-widening Russia scandal has to have been disheartening. Nearly everyone agrees that the Russian government actively attempted to aid Trump’s presidential campaign, which might be possible to explain away as not Donald Trump’s fault, were it not for the fact that so many of his aides and associates have ties of one form or another to Russia, as does the president himself. So with each new revelation or phase of the investigation, the questions get more and more uncomfortable.feedback

Apr 03 2017

President Trump started off this morning as he often does, by settling in to watch the festival of nincompoopery that is “Fox & Friends.” On the show, he saw something that he believes vindicates the bizarre and false charge he made that Barack Obama was tapping his phones during the presidential campaign.feedback

Mar 31 2017 - NAFTA

I’m going to rip up those trade deals, ” Donald Trump promised when he was campaigning for president, and about no deal was he more emphatic than the North American Free Trade Agreement, signed by George H.W. Bush and ratified under Bill Clinton. “NAFTA has been a disaster for our country. NAFTA has to be totally gotten rid of, ” he said. “So, all of that will change with me and what I tell people is you’re going to have jobs.”.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Women

No one will be surprised to learn that Mike Pence is not a loose, casual, fun-lovin’ guy. But many people were surprised to read this little tidbit in Ashley Parker’s recent profile of Pence’s wife Karen.feedback

Mar 29 2017 - Affordable Care Act

With the Republican effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act in tatters and President Trump’s approval ratings in the 30s, Democrats are feeling pretty good about their ability to limit the damage Republicans are able to do. But another unfolding story demonstrates that the dangers of unified GOP rule come from many different directions, and dramatic change can happen almost before you realize it.feedback

Mar 28 2017 - Russian probe

Is trying to cover for the Trump administration in the ever-widening Russia scandal, he’s doing an absolutely terrible job of it. In fact, Nunes is acting as though he’s trying to convince everyone he’s staging a coverup. In the latest development, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee has canceled all the committee’s meetings for this week amid calls for him to recuse himself from the investigation - which have come from, among others, the ranking minority member on the committee, Rep. Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.).feedback

Mar 27 2017 - Republican Party

There are many lessons to be learned from the failure of the GOP health-care effort. An important one is that being a businessman, even a successful one, does not prepare you for the complexities of governing, any more than being a successful software engineer means you could easily become a great carpenter.feedback

Mar 24 2017 - Russia

There’s a war breaking out in the House Intelligence Committee over the unfolding Russia scandal. And in a weird way, the evident desire of the chairman of that committee to protect President Trump may only be increasing Trump’s problems.feedback

Mar 23 2017 - SCOTUS

After days spent in fruitless attempts to get concrete answers out of Neil Gorsuch on just about anything, some Democrats in the Senate have decided they’ve had enough.feedback

Mar 22 2017 - Supreme Court

Today brings yet another shocking revelation in the ever-widening Trump-Russia scandal, and Democrats are growing increasingly frustrated that this controversy isn’t an even bigger deal than it is. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer wants a delay in the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court while the FBI’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia is ongoing, but no one seems to take the idea seriously.feedback

Mar 21 2017

On Monday, while he was suffering an unusually bad news day in Washington, President Trump went to Kentucky to hold a rally with his loyal supporters. As he always does, he spent some time regaling the crowd with how fantastic his election victory was, making one wonder at what point he’ll stop talking about that.feedback

Mar 20 2017

The intelligence committees are supposed to be the least partisan of all committees in Congress. They deal with profound matters of U.S. national security, most of their hearings are secret, and their members have access to information most other members of Congress aren’t even allowed to see.feedback

Mar 17 2017

Unlike most budget stories, the release of the Trump administration’s first budget proposal is dramatic - it’s got conflict, danger, suspense, and an uncertain outcome. It has also done liberals a great favor, for the very reason they’re so up in arms about it.feedback

Mar 16 2017 - Republican Party

When Republicans imagined having a president of their own and control of Congress, they thought it would be a nonstop string of legislative achievements and improvements to government, bringing an inspiring new era of efficiency and effectiveness that showed Americans what the GOP was really capable of.feedback

Mar 15 2017

Last night the political world went into a frenzy when MSNBC host Rachel Maddow announced she would be revealing some of President Trump’s tax documents. Then there was great disappointment, because she had only the first two summary pages of Trump’s 2005 tax return, which reveals a few things, but not the critical details that lie in the thousands of pages of Trump’s full returns. Where Trump is actually getting his income, whom he owes money to, how far and with whom his interests extend - all that is still opaque.feedback

Mar 15 2017 - Republican Party

You'll notice that even though the GOP bill has the full support of the Trump White House, the conservatives are calling it 'Ryancare' as a way of tarring him with what they think will eventually be seen as a failure. They don't view themselves as people with specific practical goals who are willing to negotiate and perhaps compromise to reach those goals – that's for the corrupt insiders. Instead, they're heroic revolutionaries, rousing the rabble and terrifying the establishment.feedback

Mar 15 2017 - Twitter

They need an enemy to rebel against, and for now, Paul Ryan is it.feedback

Mar 14 2017 - Sexual harassment

On the same day that Paul Ryan was on his heels from the Congressional Budget Office’s brutal assessment of the Republican health care plan, Breitbart.com launched a missile at the Speaker of the House. Under the headline “Audio Emerges of When Paul Ryan Abandoned Donald Trump, ” the site released a tape of Ryan on a conference call with other Republican members of Congress, recorded just after the release of the video of Trump bragging about sexual assault.feedback

Mar 10 2017

Donald Trump is not an ideologue - not because he’s open-minded, but because he has little in the way of particular beliefs about policy. He does, however, have impulses, inclinations, and prejudices. Paul Ryan, on the other hand, is an ideologue, as are many if not most of his compatriots in Congress.feedback

Mar 09 2017 - Trump administration

We need to talk about the Congressional Budget Office. But before you click away from what you assume will be a dreadfully boring discussion of arcane legislative procedures, let me assure you that there’s something larger going on in this argument, one that gets to the heart of where the Trump administration and Republicans are taking our entire political system. So stick with me.feedback

Mar 08 2017 - Affordable Care Act

With the release of the House leadership’s plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, Republicans suddenly find themselves having to answer a lot of questions about health care, which they’re not exactly comfortable doing. In the process, they’re revealing something important: not so much the details of their plan, but the values that underlie it.feedback

Mar 07 2017 - Affordable Care Act

When he was a candidate for president, Donald Trump promised that Republicans would repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with “something terrific.”.feedback

Mar 06 2017 - Travel ban

Today the administration released the new version of its travel ban, and unlike the first, bumbling time they did it, this time it actually looks like they put some thought into it, particularly with regard to getting it upheld in court. There is one critical feature it shares with the original version, however: it will do nothing to keep Americans any safer than we already are.feedback

Mar 03 2017

I have some disturbing news to share: Republicans might not be as deeply committed to proper email management as you’ve been led to believe.feedback

Mar 02 2017 - Affordable Care Act

President Trump’s hilariously candid revelation that “nobody knew that health care could be so complicated” may be remembered as the most succinct summary of the Republicans’ dilemma as they try to fulfill their endlessly repeated promise to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. And now that things are about to get specific, what had been a dangerous situation for them is about to turn into a nightmare.feedback
