A law passed that reform 1/6th of the US economy, that will affect almost everyone in the country, that Republicans are incensed against, and there is nothing about it on the front page?
The Chron was only interested in the jockeying, and now that the horse race is over, now that discussion would be about policy, about the actual consequences and not the over-the-top denunciations of the opponent, the Chron just does not care.
Actually, there is one somewhat related article, and for once, the headline is more accurate than the article:
GOP shuts down Senate with 'fix' amendments
Disgruntled, immature law makers who refused to admit the law has passed and move on onto other topics, now are trying to shut down the Senate, and delay the passage of the HCR reconciliation trailer. And Carolyn Lochhead is actually admiring them!
Republicans are having all kinds of fun shutting down the Senate... Shutting down the Senate is not fun. The Senate does important work that should be respected by the elected official. It serves the country, not the vanities of sore losing Republicans.
