They had seven years to design a new healthcare plan

The best they could design was a plan to make sure the wealthiest pay a bit less in taxes, while 24 million citizens lose access to healthcare, and older lower and middle class Americans pay much higher rates.

Bugs Bunny, Scott Pruitt, and the Laws of Physics

Climate change researchers have pointed out that, "just as there is no escaping gravity when one steps off a cliff, there is no escaping the warming that follows when we add extra carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases to the atmosphere."

Yet Pruitt continues to refute physical laws of science. Why? I believe he subscribes to the "Bugs Bunny Alternative Facts", part of the vast Bugs Bunny Conspiracy. You know what this is -- the education we all received from cartoons, that tells us that gravity is only real if you acknowledge it (you can run off a cliff and keep running until you look down, for example). Here's a video that debunks Bugs Bunny's laws of physics. I recommend it as required viewing for members of the Trump administration.

Isaac Asimov once said: "There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."
