Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud columnist Ruth Margolis for blasting liberals who demand that parents must immerse kids of all ages in politics and the social justice movement.  They also wince at the evidence Republicans may have lost congressional seats in states like California and New Jersey because they limited how much residents could use their state and local tax bill to reduce their federal tax payments.  And they react to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell urging Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey to appoint defeated Senate candidate Martha McSally to the state’s other Senate seat if Jon Kyl steps down before 2020.

    The move to force the citizens of those high tax states to face the reality that the special exceptions their states got was simply not right.  Let those states start to address their tax burden.  Long term everyone will benefit from that “come to Jesus” moment.

    Our two year old son cried when Clinton beat Bush. He was just a very bright kid.

    So the Republicans lost the house seats with the highest state and local taxes?  Maybe some members who live in those districts can share what the Democrats ran on.  I didn’t see it in Pittsburgh.  Our new congressman Connor “I’m a Marine” Lamb won running as 1. A Marine. 2. Protecting Healthcare.  Never once did I see or hear anything about the tax rates.  And the property taxes in Allegheny county are quite high.  Personally I think the Congressman who lost in Minnesota had it right.  The house voted to repeal Obamacare and McCain (plus others) because he’s McCain lost a lot of seats in the house for the Republicans.  That was a big miss and it left a lot of Republicans vulnerable.  I think our guy could have and should have fought back better, but thats a different discussion.  What did others see in these high tax locations?
