Why Trump’s threat to sabotage Obamacare would backfire

President Donald Trump has made it explicit: He is taking Obamacare hostage to try to force Democrats to work with him on health care reform. The president has a real basis for the threat. A lawsuit working its way through the courts right now threatens crucial subsidies that help lower costs for millions of people who bought their insurance through Obamacare. Those subsidies are known as cost-sharing reductions. The Obama administration had been defending the subsidies,...

Putin-linked think tank drew up plan to sway 2016 US election: documents

A Russian government think tank controlled by Vladimir Putin developed a plan to swing the 2016 U.S. presidential election to Donald Trump and undermine voters' faith in the American electoral system, three current and four former U.S. officials told Reuters. They described two confidential documents from the think tank as providing the framework and rationale for what U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded was an intensive effort by Russia to interfere with the Nov. 8 election.

The Human Cost Of Trump’s Rollback On Regulations

 If Tom Ward had to die from his work, he’d rather fall off a scaffold than endure the slow death his father did from the debilitating lung disease silicosis. “I would choose to go much quicker,” he said, “rather than to have my family watch me suffer.” Ward fears that other workers will face the same suffocating illness as his father, thanks to the regulatory rollback underway by the Trump administration. Ward’s father spent several years working...

The risk Trump takes in abandoning Steve Bannon

President Trump's business empire has long been a family affair and now his White House appears to be headed in the same direction. But what worked in building his personal fortune may not help his political fortunes. Trump's old glitz and glamor brand has been repealed and replaced with a vaguely right-wing populist one. Whatever the advantages of the former in pursuing a mass television audience, it is the latter that got him elected president. Like the...

Curious How Many Senators Support the Syria Airstrikes?

The MSM is filled with denouncements of Trump's decision to execute airstrikes in Syria, but does the U.S. Senate share the same views?

They continued, "For that, he deserves the support of the American people." Rubio applauded Trump's move against the Syrian military facility. "By acting decisively...

During an appearance at the eighth annual Women in the World Summit in New York City, Clinton said her team and supporters have been spending time "trying to piece it all together" — referring to why she lost to President Trump.
