UConn’s chances are essentially the lowest they’ve been in the tournament, according to our model — but betting markets disagree.
Is UConn Still A Big Favorite?

Any statistical analysis has standard deviations and a consideration of a mean, but UConn is such an insane outlier that any predictive formula is insufficient. The Vegas line makes a lot more sense than the percentage given by the model.

When you propose and push a health care package that doctors, nurses, hospitals and organizations that work to help the elderly and the poor, all oppose, you need to reconsider your legislation.

Shouldn't this be about two crackpots in the Republican Party?
03/26/2017 at 15:42
Well, geez. The intersection of agreement between Trump and the Conservative Republican faction is a small one.
Trump might as well push the politically-popular and populist ideas of Medicare-for-all and Free-college-for-all and see where that takes him. Those Freedom Caucus members are less likely to vote for his measures than Red State Democrats are.

03/25/2017 at 20:12
Getting past all the nuanced arguments, the bottom line is the Republicans have the power to do anything they want with Obamacare. They're in charge, they own the shop, they can scrap it completely or improve it if they want. But obviously, they don't have the cojones or brains to do either. Typical.

A good, decent president would work across the aisle to fix what's not working with the ACA. A narcissistic twit who doesn't care would try to weaken it more in subversive ways. Truck Fump.

The only thing that united the GOP was hatred of Obama. Without that excuse, they are hopelessly fragmented, and their selfish, no compromise stance will be their undoing.
03/24/2017 at 23:56
But here's real deal: Trump WANTED to lose this one for very simple reasons: (1) He knows that his "terrific" plan would be a disaster for millions of his supporters; (2) with his not-so-terrific plan in the dumpster, he can (a) continue to trash the ACA and (b) bash his opponents, including the Dems and any Republican who dared to oppose his plan. His sycophantic minions will eat it up. Donnie wins the long game by losing this battle.

Which is why HARDEN IS LAME. Dude's entire game is based on drawing the foul. If you guard him at the right intensity, he draws a BS foul. If you avoid the foul, he has an open 3 he can make.
He's the worst.
03/24/2017 at 17:19
Boring to watch? Nah, the tempo is pushed, the ball moves, shots are flying. He's a tough guard. Does he exaggerate contact, sure, but that isn't his "game". He's doing a lot more to contribute to the 3rd best record in the league.

Seriously, do SINGLE PAYER. Democrats would vote for it, as would many moderate Republicans. And most of Trump's base would benefit MIGHTILY from this. Want to show the GOP isn't ruled by greedy corporations? This is how you do it!
03/23/2017 at 23:53
I would be hilarious if Trump pushes through a public option or single payer system. After all, he promised "universal healthcare". Never would I have thought... Republicans For "Socialism".
03/24/2017 at 00:31
Saw this situation coming from a mile away. In my opinion, he would have been better served to focus on other issues or simply tweak Obamacare to make it better. But they don't want to tweak it because it's Obama's policy and they've campaigned for years on repealing. "Tweaking" it would basically be admitting that the overall program is at least halfway decent and they can't even admit that. Maybe the GOP (including Trump) should just admit they were bluffing the whole time on health care.
03/23/2017 at 22:40.
Health care, more than almost any other issue, hinges on ideals that divide the two parties in Washington and, more importantly, Blue America and Red America.

Red America has gone beyond "voting against its best economic interests" to "intentionally misperceiving their best economic interests" to "suicide via shitty politician." It would be a horrible enough process to watch if that constituency hadn't imposed their way of doing things in the red states on the rest of us.

Well inner suburbs are usually already built up on the ground, and building up has limited appeal...otherwise why not live in a city? The only real strategy for growth in somewhere like where I live would be to privatize park land, but that's another perk of living here instead of the city. Low density suburbs just make more sense from a lifestyle suburb, high-density suburbs are increasingly becoming more like low-density urban neighborhoods

the tribe is headed back to the WS, fo sho! if the tribe had a healthy bullpen last year, the WS wouldnt have gone 7 games and extra innings..they got that far with only 2 starters..just proof that francona is by far the best coach in MLB...the cubs got lucky..they blew a sizable lead in game 7. it only took one team to make one wrong move, in this case it was the tribe..that is not gonna happen this year if their bullpen is healthy by post season this year..
