  • Clearly, there has been a lack of imagination about how much can go wrong.
  • Here’s the thing about rights. They’re not actually supposed to be voted on. That’s why they’re called rights.
  • I end up liking politicians, both left and right, who talk about political matters as if they are addressing a bunch of adults, as if they are capable of handling both complexity and emotional responsibility.

  • Social security isn’t a ponzi scheme. It’s not bankrupting us. It’s not an outrage. It is working.
