Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton, one of the key ringleaders of the conservative uprising against Nancy Pelosi's leadership, laid out his best argument Tuesday against her speakership complete with bogus reasoning and dated polling to back it up. The crux of Moulton's justification for ousting Pelosi comes down to this: the voters who sent some 40 new Democrats to Congress this cycle wanted «real change and new leadership in Washington.» «And if we, as Democrats, are going to answer that call, we can't turn around and choose the same leadership we've had in place since 2003,» Moulton wrote at CNN. It is entirely disingenuous of Moulton to hide behind voters in order to rationalize his anti-Pelosi campaign. The «real change» voters clearly endorsed in the election was for competent leadership (i.e. a check on Trump) and shoring up health care. In fact, the top two issues driving people's votes for Democrats in the AP exit polls were health care and Donald Trump: nearly 4 in 10 people who voted for Democrats said health care was their top issue; another 4 in 10 people said they cast their vote to express opposition to Trump. Those two issues dominated the mindset of pro-Democratic voters. Voters plainly didn't vote against Pelosi; they voted against Trump and in favor of shoring up the healthcare law Pelosi both passed in 2010 and helped to build their entire midterm strategy around. But if you want to look at the election as a head-to-head between Pelosi and Trump—which is certainly the matchup Republicans spent millions of dollars hyping—Pelosi won without a doubt. Anti-Trump votes led the way to Democrats' victory. In order to buttress his point, Moulton cites Gallup polling suggesting 56 percent of Democrats favor new leadership over Pelosi. The poll was conducted Oct. 15-28, well before Pelosi-led Democrats executed the most impressive takedown of Republicans since Watergate. Huh, why use last month's polling, Seth? Here's why, from Quinnipiac Tuesday: Democrats say 53 - 27 percent they would like to see U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi return to her position as Speaker of the House of Representatives. Levels of support are consistent across the Democratic political spectrum. Huh, it seems Moulton's coup only enjoys the support of a quarter of Democrats.
One of the 12,000 people in Arkansas who have been summarily kicked off of Medicaid and who are suing the state over it is Adrian McGonigal. Ironically, this formerly full-time worker ultimately lost his job over the state's work requirement. The Washington Post's Catherine Rampell features McGonigal in a story about how badly the new requirement is harming the people it purports to help. McGonigal worked full time at a chicken plant, despite having the chronic lung disease COPD. The disease was managed by prescription medication that was funded by Medicaid he qualified for under the state's expansion plan. He says he didn't get clear information on how to report his work. «Like many I spoke with, McGonigal says he got confusing and sometimes conflicting information from the state's Department of Human Services, which told him to report online,» Rampell writes. «He doesn't have a cellphone or computer, so he borrowed his sister-in-law's smartphone.» «I thought that everything was good,» he told me in an interview for The Post and «PBS NewsHour.» «I thought it was just a one-time deal that you reported it, and then that was it.» The state requires enrollees to report every month, but didn't communicate that to McGonigal. He didn't find out that he had been dropped until he tried to fill his COPD prescription and was told he no longer had coverage. Without the medication, he ended up in the emergency room and missed work. «I tried to stick it out, and still go to work, but I just couldn't do it,» he said. He was laid off. Losing Medicaid coverage made him lose his job. Here's one of the real kickers to what Arkansas is doing: Enrollees are required to report their hours online, a cost-saving measure by the state to avoid hiring more staff to take the reports by phone, in person, or through the mail. But this: «Most indefensibly, the website shuts down every single night between 9 p.m. and 7 a.m. for 'scheduled maintenance.'» That's just cruel. And likely unconstitutional, as McGonigal seeks to prove.

Former independent director of YES Bank Rentala Chandrashekar quit the board as he was not happy with the recent developments in the bank, which seemed non-focussed to find a successor of its MD & CEO Rana Kapoor, sources said Wednesday. The former bureaucrat wanted the bank to focus on finding a successor for Kapoor rather than indulging in issues such as shake up in the board composition and the likes, sources told PTI. When contacted, Chandrashekhar confirmed in the affirmative on the reason behind his departure from YES Bank and refused to divulge anything further. Also, he also confirmed that the management, including Kapoor, had wanted him to stay with the bank. «That's correct,» said the former telecom secretary. Sources said that Chandrashekar was of the view that the bank should have been focussing on the transition and making sure that there was an orderly transition instead of having all the turbulence, including churn in the board and the selection committee to find a
