Okay, recent experiment shows that if you edit, on DW, an imported-from-LJ post and turn on crossposting for it, you wind up with two versions on LJ, the original, and the edited-and-crossposted one.

You know what would be awesome, Medium Game, for the Blue Nation and Obamacare? If outraged Repealists started flipping out on Replacists on Twitter, accusing anybody who espouses Replacism of being a RINO/libtard/Democratic plant/etc and attacking them for being a lazy slob who mooches off the government like those damned Democrats.Today, on CNN, emphasis mine:
Come the day that Republicans expect to be personally attacked by fellow Republicans for expressing any wish for government assistance in securing health insurance, a whole bunch of no-longer-insured Republicans will quietly cross the aisle.
I don't know that the Repealists have started doing this for us. Here's hoping.
The tug-of-war between the factions angered some other Republicans who are not part of either faction and resent their influence, like Alabama Rep. Bradley Byrne.Now we just need Red Twitter to run with it. Oh please oh please oh please.
But Byrne predicted that when the bill finally came to the floor, political reality would kick in.
"If you are a Republican you have one choice. You're either going to vote with Donald Trump to repeal and replace Obamacare or you're going to vote with Nancy Pelosi to defeat the only bill that will repeal and replace Obamacare. And if you're a Republican, that's a pretty simple choice."
A key element of the negotiations between the Freedom Caucus and the White House revolves around the so-called Essential Health Benefits. The White House is working to possibly include the repeal of Obamacare requirements that certain benefits -- such as mental health coverage, drug addiction coverage and maternity care -- be required in insurance plans.

The state’s law says the following activities do not count for overtime pay:
"The canning, processing, preserving, freezing, drying, marketing, storing, packing for shipment or distribution of:
(1) Agricultural produce;
(2) Meat and fish products; and
(3) Perishable foods."
The drivers argued, due to a lack of a comma between “packing for shipment” and “or distribution”, the law refers to the single activity of “packing”, not to “packing” and “distribution” as two separate activities. As the drivers distribute – but do not pack – the goods, this would make them eligible for overtime pay.
