Correct

And his surgery is covered because all members of congress have healthcare policies that must conform to the ACA minimum standards.

McCain is fortunate that he has the income and assets to continue buying a good policy after he votes to repeal the one he has now. Many other Americans may not be.
This is not a concern

Trump’s treasury secretary is hurtling toward potential debt-limit fiasco

Steven Mnuchin’s struggles to win support in Congress or the White House for his strategy to raise the federal debt ceiling are casting doubt on whether the political neophyte has the Washington clout to win approval of a measure that could be necessary to avoid a historic, market-rattling default on U.S. government debt.

Sessions to push for police to take more cash from U.S. citizens

The attorney general said he would issue a new asset-forfeiture directive this week aimed at increasing police seizures of cash and property, a practice curtailed by his predecessor, Eric Holder Jr.


Whadda ya expect, when you make a good ol' Alabama boy in charge of the nation's police?

Ku**shner had to update his disclosure of foreign contacts three times. Does that put him in legal jeopardy?
**
Those close to the president’s son-in-law say the omissions on his national security questionnaire were simple errors, but the document warns that those who submit false information could be charged with a federal crime and face up to five years in prison.

I figure Trump will pardon him, if the heat gets too hot.

Vice chair of Trump’s voting commission wants to add new requirements for voting, email shows

Kris Kobach in November told the Trump transition team of a proposal to change federal law to allow stricter requirements on voter registration.


Easy to see where this is heading---the Constitutional Originalists want to limit the voting to Men who are Landowners. Perhaps one vote per acre?

Trump administration unveils goals in renegotiating NAFTA

More than a third of U.S. exports flow to Canada and Mexico, and the announcement was being closely watched for clues as to how the administration might renegotiate the far-ranging trade pact.

This has the potential ability to crash our economy....

Trump officials announce 15,000 additional visas for seasonal workers

The one-time increase in H-2B visas — which would be available to workers taking temporary jobs in the seafood, tourism and other industries but not to farm laborers — is a seeming about-face from President Trump’s “Hire American” rhetoric and follows heavy industry lobbying.

Great action to suppress wages of American workers, while making American Companies GReat Again!

Trump is the opiate (of about 24%) of the masses.

Who will cover the healthcare cost for this addiction?

President Obama worked with congress to pass the first comprehensive wall street reform act
known now as the Dodd-Frank Wallstreet reform and Consumer Protection Act.

This legislation, among many other restriction is designed to prevent the abuses that lead to the 2006 financial meltdown

Norton, that qualifies as sweeping a few crumbs off the table. The Democrats actually believe that capitalism can work in the long run. The Republicans know better and want to loot all they can before the house of cards collapses.

This sort of looks like what may lie ahead.

Capt. Cassidy: There was a democratic movement in Japan after the last war. What happened?
Reserve Officer Raymond: The leaders were assassinated.
Andy - Executive Officer: Well, what about the people?
Capt. Cassidy: They have no voice now…
Reserve Officer Raymond: That's right, sir. The big wage is seven dollars a week. They have no unions, no free press... nothing.
Capt. Cassidy: They do what they're told.
Reserve Officer Raymond: I'm afraid most of them believe what they're told… They've been sold a swindle, and they accept it.
(Destination Tokyo, 1943, Cary Grant, Alan Hale, Dane Clark, John Garfield, William Prince, et al)

Sort of what Trump and friends would like.

well having failed to pass their own healthcare the Repubs face an embarrassing new problem

they will have to soon vote to fund the ACA again for the next fiscal year

and that means funding both the Medicaid expansion and also the exchange subsidies

double trouble - if they do their rabid base will scream and the press will kill them if they don't

what to do?....Republican school 101 .. .blame Hillary...blame the media...blame Democrats

governing is so hard...life was better when they sat in the bleachers and threw rocks at the Dems

Trump has repeatedly broken his core campaign promise

Trump’s central pitch, redistilled and redistributed on a near-daily basis over the course of 2016, was a simple one: I am a dealmaker, and I will make deals. But what deals has he made?



Win....Win....Win......
