Let’s vote blindly

You might remember that old Republican talking point where Representative Pelosi says the other reps will have to vote on the ACA to see what’s in it. This is wrong (she was saying that there was so much disinformation around that the public wouldn’t really know what it did until it was passed into law), but now look what Republicans are doing:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., scheduled the initial vote on beginning debate for Tuesday, though it remained unclear exactly which version of the legislation would be in play.

This would be funny if it wasn’t so tragic, McConnell expects Republicans to vote to open up debate on some bill even though they don’t know which bill. They will literally have to vote to see which bill they’re going to debate.

Update: And the Republicans voted to debate some bill, any bill, to give the rich huge tax cuts.
