Republicans Will Finally Let Public See Their Obamacare Plan:
It’s the moment they’ve been waiting for.
After years of haranguing Democrats for Obamacare’s shortcomings and running dress rehearsals to repeal it, Republicans this week may finally lay down a specific and actionable plan to scrap the Affordable Care Act and face the praise as well as the consequences.
“We’re working through the final details of this,” Rep. Kevin Brady, a Republican from Texas and the House Ways and Means Chairman told Fox News Saturday.
Most Back Special Prosecutor For Russia Investigation:
About two-thirds of Americans say a special prosecutor should investigate contacts between Russians and Trump campaign associates, according to a new CNN/ORC poll, and 55% say they are at least somewhat concerned by reports that some connected to the Trump campaign had contact with suspected Russian operatives.
However, the steady stream of news about investigations into those contacts doesn’t appear to have affected President Donald Trump’s approval rating, which ticked up only one percentage point — 44% to 45% — from January.
Rep. Richmond Apologizes For Conway Remarks:
Rep. Cedric Richmond apologized to White House adviser Kellyanne Conway on Sunday night for making crude remarks at a Washington dinner last week about a photo showing Conway on her knees on an Oval Office sofa.
“After a discussion with people I know and trust, I understand the way my remarks have been received by many,” the Louisiana Democrat said in a statement. “I have consistently been a champion for women and women’s issues, and because of that the last thing I would want to ever do is utter words that would hurt or demean them. I apologize to Kellyanne Conway and everyone who has found my comments to be offensive.”
Why TV Teen Dramas Are What We Need Now:
In recent months, the political climate has changed drastically and regardless of your party leanings, the Trump administration has everyone talking.
It’s necessary to remain aware of what’s happening around us, but what about the moments when we need a break? Where can you go when social media becomes a place of contested views and the day’s news seems all too grim?
For me, the answer is found on television.
Explicit Photos Of Female Marines Posted Online; Navy Investigating:
The Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) has opened an investigation into the online posting of potentially hundreds of explicit photos of current and former female Marines and other service members, CNN has confirmed.
A private Facebook group called “Marines United” contained a link to a Google Drive folder, where the photos were being stored, a US defense official told CNN. Members on the site solicited others to submit photos of women without their knowledge. The cloud storage folder has been removed at the request of the military, the official said. It was not clear to the Defense Department how many current and former Marines may be involved in potential wrongdoing.
