The Trumps and the Truth

The Trumps and the Truth | Current Events, Political & This & That | Scoop.it
The best defense against future revelations is radical transparency. Harsh words from the Murdoch-owned The Wall Street Journal on Donald Trump and his shaky relationship with the truth. "Mr. Trump somehow seems to believe that his outsize personality and social-media following make him larger than the Presidency. He’s wrong. He and his family seem oblivious to the brutal realities of Washington politics. Those realities will destroy Mr. Trump, his family and their business reputation unless they change their strategy toward the Russia probe. They don’t have much more time to do it."

CBO: Mitch McConnell's latest health care bill would leave 32 million more uninsured

CBO: Mitch McConnell's latest health care bill would leave 32 million more uninsured | Current Events, Political & This & That | Scoop.it
"McConnell’s “new” bill is essentially the same as one Republicans passed—and President Barack Obama vetoed—in 2015, just with the dates moved forward two years. But CBO doesn’t see any real difference between the two: 17 million more people would be uninsured in 2018 if Republicans pass McConnell’s bill compared to the current law; that number would rise to 32 million by 2026."

Opinion | The GOP’s moral rot is the problem, not Donald Trump Jr. | Current Events, Political & This & That | Scoop.it
That's ultimately what gave us President Trump. What Jennifer Rubin is saying is, the current GOP is not conservative, but merely anti-liberal. A lot of her points ring true. "A party that has to deny climate change and insist illegal immigrants are creating a crime wave — because that is what “conservatives” must believe, since liberals do not — is a party that will deny Trump’s complicity in gross misconduct. It’s a party as unfit to govern as Trump is unfit to occupy the White House."
