“If it was a guy from south Texas I might ask them to step outside and settle this Aaron Burr-style.”

If this is the way legislation is worked out in Texas, I’m glad I don’t live there. At least Washington DC is a bit more civilized — even if not much.

And that’s not even addressing the idea that a reasonable person (even a Republican Senator) might have problems with leaving millions of people without health insurance — a situation that will cause thousands of premature deaths.

But I have this advice for Fahrenhold — be careful whom you pick a gunfight with. Don’t for a moment assume that Senators (including women Senators) are bad shots.
