Tuesday Short Cuts

Memo to Democrats: “Sometimes the policy that makes you feel good doesn’t actually do good for those you’re trying to help.”

Insight: “There is no such thing as an achieved liberty: like electricity, there can be no substantial storage and it must be generated as it is enjoyed, or the lights go out.” —Justice Robert H. Jackson (1892-1954)

Upright: “Acting on the belief that marriage is the union of husband and wife does not in itself entail ‘discriminating’ on the basis of sexual orientation. Indeed, part of the problem is that liberals are simply calling anything they disagree with ‘discrimination.’ This overbroad definition of ‘discrimination’ is part of what creates the problems for the free exercise of religion and free speech.” —Ryan T. Anderson

For the record: “The essence of obstruction is to frustrate the search for truth. Its antithesis is to demand the exposure of fraud. Donald Trump’s political enemies are trying to build an obstruction case on the antithesis of obstruction: the president’s insistence that the collusion fraud be exposed.” —Andrew McCarthy

Non Compos Mentis: “This [Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act] is supported, I am sure, by ISIS.” —Manhattan DA Cy Vance

The BIG Lie: “We do know that many more people, hundreds of thousands of people, will die if this [GOP health care] bill passes.” —Nancy Pelosi

Demo-gogues: “The Affordable Care Act has problems — deductibles are too high, copayments are too high — we have to address that. But I also want to say, that there’s something wrong when we remain the only country not to guarantee health care to all people as a right. I am going to go forward with a Medicare-for-all single payer program, and I think that’s the direction, long term, that we should be going.” —Bernie Sanders

Wrong prescription: “I think [single-payer] probably is the best system. Because it is a system — we are such a rich country, in a sense we can afford to do it.” —Warren Buffett

And last… “Sometimes the policy that makes you feel good doesn’t actually do good for those you’re trying to help.” —Mary Katharine Ham
