The Asshole Caucus

  

  

Good and fairly objective article on the secretive House Freedom Caucus. It makes the excellent point that the rift between this faction and “The Establishment” has less to do with ideology than tactics. The HFC is perfectly willing to cause the entire Federal government to grind to a halt, or wreck the economy, just to make a political point. Unlike, say, John Boehner, they either think the majority of Americans will applaud this or (equally  likely) they just don’t care.
