The straight-up House of Cards move Republicans used to get a Doc Fix bill through as support was collapsing.
The U.S. House passed a one-year delay of a 24 percent payment cut to physicians who accept Medicare patients, with Republican leaders pushing the bill through in a move that masked trouble finding the votes for it.

“Why should the federal government stop progress on Jaxport and Port Everglades,” he said, “simply because their reports got done a couple of months after” a bill passed.
Congress has run aground and Port Everglades doesn’t want to.

America: I am immune to your sudden-onset Belgaphobia. 
Pity poor Budweiser. On the one hand, it's the official beer of the U.S. national soccer team. The Bud people made a really neat hype-filled video for U.S.

Tensions rising in Crimea as a war-fatigued Congress mulls what it can, will and won't do. My story today.
U.S. lawmakers from both parties urged President Barack Obama to lead an international effort to impose diplomatic and economic sanctions on Russia if it attacks Ukraine, though they stopped short of calling for armed intervention.

Story
Introduction
"To me, there are three things we all should do every day. We should do this every day of our lives. Number one is laugh. You should laugh every day. Number two is think. You should spend some time in thought. And number three is, you should have your emotions moved to tears, could be happiness or joy. But think about it. If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special."
- Jim Valvano

I'm trying to have a heck of a day.
