Class-based affirmative action will strike Americans as more fair than race-based policies. But the real task should be to expand enrollment at elite colleges, so that admissions aren't such a vicious zero-sum game. https://t.co/UvXbcE6knt

The fact that Donald Trump displayed some tactical flexibility about his ideological commitments in crunch time mattered a lot. The crew of maniacs he’s assembled tend to lack this quality.
Bolduc says he wouldn't have voted for COVID relief bills, including ones passed under Donald Trump. "I wouldn't have voted for them, they were unnecessary"
