Mar. 30th, 2017

I've been reading the Wall Street Journal, especially the editorial page, for many years, and have not always agreed with it, but I have mostly agreed with much of it. I do think that it has been going downhill lately by sucking up to Donald Trump. For example, it has heaped scorn on the House Freedom Caucus people, and on other critics who have raised principled and practical objections to the AHCA bill to reform Obamacare. Reasonable men may differ as to whether passing a flawed bill is better than killing it, but I am offended both by the editorialist's contemptuous tone, and by the failure to address the substance of the classical liberals' objections.

This isn't the first time I've been displeased by the Journal lately.
