Thursday's HOT MIC

As Republicans in the House try to — I don't know — actually govern, Vox says they should drop everything until Trump is — I don't know — impeached? Because of the unsubstantiated Russia scandal. Here's some of the Vox article about Republicans' "alternate reality":

As scandal after scandal plagues the White House, House Republicans were living in an alternate reality Thursday — moving forward with their legislative agenda as if nothing happened.

The House Ways and Means Committee, which writes the nation’s tax laws, hosted its first hearing of the year on tax reform, assembling a group of business leaders to testify about the best way to overhaul the tax code and grow the economy.

So, the Republicans should twiddle their thumbs while Democrats try to impeach a sitting president after a little over 100 days? Is it really "living in an alternate reality" to try to push forward on important reforms? To Vox, it is. But Americans want to see some results from their government, and tax reform is one of the key goals of the Republicans voters elected.
