Happy Birthday to Lena Heady, 40.
1. What it sounds like when your colleagues in the Senate really, really, hate you. This is beyond brutal. From Manu Raju.
2. Elizabeth Rigby on how Republicans have made Medicaid more complex, even before the ACA expansion.
3. A couple I missed: Seth Masket on sore loser laws as party protection.
4. And Richard Skinner on parties and policy.
