I would say it's also contrary to what the pundits on the right would have us believe. Remember how so much was going to get done now that the GOP has the trifecta?

How Obamacare would be replaced by something soooooo much better (but the only deal on the table was basically the cheap Chinese knock-off version of Obamacare)?

For example prototyping often goes much more quickly with languages that feature dynamic types

I don't think that's true, but I'm open to data that proves otherwise. Prototyping goes quickly in languages that have good libraries (if I want to prototype a new kind of web server, for example, I might try Golang, because it has good libraries for that kind of thing).

Let's see, Obamacare is a plague on the nation that must be killed right now. The GOP could do so much better. So they propose Obamacare-lite and can't manage to pass it even while controlling the House, the Senate, and the Oval Office. Let me guess, somewhere in Arkansas the county dog catcher is a Democrat and that gummed up everything.

Slow clap.

Plenty of IDEs can already handle this without much of a problem, and as I said, Google closure already does static code analysis which will probably catch any "bad" refactoring you've done.

It's not clear you've understood the problem. The bug is syntactically and semantically correct, so static analysis will not detect it. It's only manifests itself as a behavioral problem. Please try to say something that indicates you understand the issue (if you choose to again reply).
