It's Failing: Obamacare Premiums on Federal Exchange Have Soared By 105 Percent Since 2013

And now, an essential bookend to my post this morning on the Congressional Budget Office's analysis of the House's American Health Care Act.

Trump leaves three words out of his Saudi Arabia speech

​President Donald Trump gave a highly-anticipated address to Arab and Muslim leaders in Saudi Arabia during his first trip abroad on Sunday. One phrase candidate Trump repeated countlessly on the campaign trail was missing: "radical Islamic terrorism." Trump stressed the need to build a coalition to address a "crisis of Islamic extremism," but neglected to use the charged keystone of his campaign trail rhetoric in his speech to 50 Middle Eastern leaders. Before his victory and...
