'The group’s clout is limited. The White House has ignored Ms Stefanik’s missive and a proposal to cut taxes for clean energy fell flat.'

Remember this throw away line in deference to crony capitalism next time the Economist desires to criticize the practice.

Trillions have been printed throughout the West, becasue it was necessary to maintain civil order. Buying votes has gotten very expensive. It no longer can be done by fiscal redistribution, nor borrowing; leaving printing the only source of government funding. The money is gonna go somewhere; into industries that are richly lobbied; creating investment opportunities and necessary crafting for the rules of the game. The bipartisanship, is nothing more than nudging at a politically-acceptable trough.

Interesting.
With the prevailing view (amongst the group members, I guess) that even gender is not a binary construct but a full spectrum of continuum, the group nevertheless enforces a strictly binary 'Noah's rule' on its members' induction.
Tacky.

Democrats and Republicans come in more than one flavour each. There are RINO , Dixiecrats, GOP from California, and Democrats in oil rich Texas.
Perhaps the pairs can pick each other based on degree of approach to the climate change issue ie Democrat that fears the end of Earth vs sees Evil plot by third world to rob US Republican. The end result mathematically is the middle of the road.

Oops! The "hoax" is now bipartisan. What has the world come to? Lock them up! Lock them up!

PS: Sorry, couldn't resist. :)

I second @jouris.

After all that work, TE has not got rid of spam. So strange.

Houshu in reply to ashbird

Maybe it's officially sanctioned business model to generate additional traffic and revenue. Why, TE is just another FB (or strive to become one)? In fact, I bet that complaint from readers such as @jouris is aggregated and sent to Cambridge Analytic to generate more targeted ads.
hehehe....

Bipartisan committee working together? Sacrilege!
These lazy politicians sitting around talking politely and appearing to work toward the common good generate no value for society. They should be doing their jobs by
-pushing idealist positions at each other with no real listening
-generating inflammatory headlines to play to their bases and generate irate anger in the others parties followers
-thereby selling more newspapers and generate clicks on websites

Then again, seeing this strange beast is enough to draw attention to it. But the story doesn't have the legs of conspiracy theories and other twisted truths. I'm bored now. Only some one outside North America could have created this, this news with no entertainment value.
