So much wrong in Washington No problem, local media to the rescue

Republicans are digging the grave of Obamacare. Should they whistle as they work? Nate Silver of tweets

We estimate the GOP bill has plurality support from voters in only ~80 of 435 districts, and a majority in only about 3 (!) of 435.

Huh. Weird…

The GOP bill is widely unpopular??? Isn’t this supposed to matter in our system of government? Isn’t it supposed to matter a LOT? Isn’t it sort of a fundamental, bedrock principle of democracy/self-government?  Surely our local editorial page will grab a-hold of this and, you know, weigh-in soon!
