"There is nothing that infuriates you and I [...] more than when politics is covered like a game. If your response to millions of people losing their health care, including cancer patients, people who have been the victims of sexual assault or domestic violence -- if your response to that is to decide which politicians are the winners in this, quit your fucking job. There are only losers here, and they are the American people. This is not a political win for Paul Ryan, it doesn't mean Donald Trump is a great negotiator, doesn't mean that the new Reince Priebus / Gary Cohn wing of the whatever did anything right. It just means that there is a section of American people who needed help, got help, and now may have that help taken away. That's all that matters here. The fact that we cover this like the NBA playoffs is how we end up in a situation where the Republicans in the house think that all that matters is putting points on the board by passing something, no matter how horrible it is or how ignorant they are of the details of it."-- Dan Pfeiffer, on Pod Save America, 2017-05-04
