Trump’s Budget Turns ‘Policies
Into Numbers’

American Spectator, by Debra J. Saunders

Original Article

Posted By:Lalo, 3/19/2017 11:41:44 PM

President Donald Trump presented a radically different budget blueprint to Congress on Thursday. The new plan would increase defense spending by $54 billion and fund the increase with targeted cuts in other discretionary spending. What makes the $1.1 trillion budget truly unique, Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told reporters before the rollout, is that “we wrote it using the president’s own words. We went through his speeches, we went through articles that have been written about his policies, we talked to him, and we wanted to know what his policies were, and we turned those policies into

This is one Presidential Budget I can get behind. As much as I admired President Reagan, I don´t believe he ever submitted a balanced budget although he always talked about doing same.....?

The latest from 6-year-olds: Dinosaurs are awesome, the blue crayon is best and also the Indians are trying to lock up shortstop Francisco Lindor for seven more seasons. Brody Chernoff, the son of Indians GM Mike, joined the Cleveland radio broadcast on Saturday in a cute way to liven up the monotony of spring training. After a few shy minutes, Brody seemed to open up, telling broadcaster Tom Hamilton (and the world listening) that Dad “had to stay up til 2 in the morning with phone calls” to make the offseason splash of Edwin Encarnacion.

White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus dismissed speculation Sunday that President Trump wants to oust House Speaker Paul D. Ryan over the failure to pass a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare. “No, he doesn’t,” Mr. Priebus insisted on “Fox News Sunday.” The speculation about the president’s dissatisfaction with the speaker mounted after Mr. Trump urged his Twitter followers to watch Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro’s program on Saturday, in which she opened the show with a call for the removal of Mr. Ryan. “I think it was more coincidental,” said Mr. Priebus. “There was no pre-planning here.”

It was a careful choice of words, Bernard Lewis being nothing if not careful. In 2004, the West audibly gasped when its preeminent scholar of Islam famously told the German newspaper Die Welt,“Europe will be Islamic by the end of the century,” if not sooner. Listen carefully. He did not say that Muslims will be the majority population in what is still recognizably Europe. No, Professor Lewis said “Europe will be Islamic.” We are not talking about Muslims here. We are talking about Islam. Lots of individual Muslims desire peaceful coexistence, even assimilation. But Islam’s aim is to prevail. So,

Vice President Pence tried Saturday to deliver a pep-talk to Americans after fellow Republicans’ failed effort to overhaul ObamaCare -- admitting that members are “back to the drawing board” but vowing that President Trump will “keep fighting.” Pence spoke in the aftermath of House Speaker Paul Ryan on Friday cancelling the final vote for the ObamaCare replacement bill, upon concluding he didn’t have enough votes despite the chamber’s GOP majority. Republicans Ryan and Trump after announcing the cancellation, sounded as if efforts to fulfill campaign promises to repeal and replace the 2010 health care law were essentially finished. Ryan publicly said Americans would

Trump gets tamed by Washington

Donald Trump crowed for months he would strike a "terrific" deal on health care. His ambitions ended in a brief phone call Friday afternoon, in which Speaker Paul Ryan told him the truth: He was nowhere close. The businessman president, who sold himself to tens of millions of disillusioned voters last year as the only outsider who could tame a broken capital, ended his first confrontation with lawmakers overmatched, outmaneuvered and ultimately empty-handed. “We learned a lot about some very arcane rules,” Trump said in the Oval Office soon after the defeat of his effort to undo President Obama’s

President Donald Trump, who has been widely criticized for only speaking with right-wing news outlets, called the Washington Post and the New York Times first on Friday to talk about the House Republicans health care bill. House Republicans pulled the Obamacare repeal bill on Friday after Speaker Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) told Trump they did not have enough votes to pass the bill. CNN Reporter Dylan Byers tweeted that Trump, "who says you can´t trust media," called the Washington Post and the New York Times first to discuss pulling the American Health Care Act.

How Washington Handed
Trump His First Defeat

President Trump and his advisers ought to study the collapse of the American Health Care Act. It´s a case study in how Beltway institutions—the so-called Swamp Trump pledged to drain—can herd a president and his party toward unpopular legislation and political defeat. Begin with this question: Why the rush to repeal and replace Obamacare? Yes, repealing the law has been a Republican priority since 2010. But Democrats had spent decades laying the groundwork for universal health care before finding themselves in control of the government in 2009. And even then, it took a year for the Affordable Care Act to

The Conservatives Made a Mistake

I fear the conservatives may have erred. Let´s accept that Paul Ryan´s healthcare bill wasn´t optimal. If the Congressional Budget Office was anywhere close to correct in its original estimations, the bill would have cut government spending by $12.5 trillion, cut taxes by $900 million, repealed Obamacare´s tax increases, and instituted the largest entitlement reform in the last thirty years. But yes, it´s true, it wasn´t full repeal. Indeed, as long as insurance companies are required to cover pre-existing conditions, government healthcare is with us, and the bill would not have changed that. And it is certainly fair to doubt whether

Paul Ryan thought Trump could woo
the Freedom Caucus. He was wrong
Washington Examiner, by Philip Wegman    Original Article

During a televised press conference, Paul Ryan just unraveled his cognitive dissidence. Against all evidence, the speaker had been hoping that President Trump could somehow cut a deal with the Freedom Caucus without making major concessions. He should´ve known better. "This is a disappointing day for us," Ryan told reporters shortly after pulling his American Healthcare Act. But for anyone paying close attention it wasn´t a surprising development. For months, Trump´s business acumen has been grossly exaggerated, and the stubbornness of the "hell-no caucus" underestimated. The subsequent failure of the American Healthcare Act reflects both basic arithmetic and recent history.

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., isn´t ready to give up yet on repealing and replacing Obamacare after the House GOP pulled the American Health Care Act from a vote on Friday, despite President Trump´s insisting that his administration is moving on to tax reform.

Why don´t we set up a special committee," Paul told Fox News fill-in host Eric Bolling on "The O´Reilly Factor" Friday evening.

The defeat of the Republican healthcare plan to repeal Obamacare Friday has all of Washington discussing House Speaker Paul Ryan´s fate, but many lawmakers are standing by their speaker. "Speaker Ryan has all the support he´s ever had — and then some — in that room," Rep. Bradley Byrne, R-Ala., told the Washington Examiner about the meeting in which Ryan told his conference they would not be voting on the legislation Friday. "Remember, we asked him to take this job," he added. "We begged him to take this job. I´m so proud he´s our leader and I think that´s the view of

A major House committee chair dealt the Republican bill to replace the Affordable Care Act another blow as he announced Friday he would not be voting in favor of the plan as it is now written. Republican Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen of New Jersey, chair of the House Appropriations Committee — which is tasked with appropriating discretionary federal funds — wrote on Facebook that he could not vote for the present iteration of the American Health Care Act. "Seven years after enactment of Obamacare, I wanted to support legislation that made positive changes to rescue healthcare in America," Frelinghuysen wrote. "Unfortunately, the legislation

Republican officials in Congress and the White House are now openly discussing finding a GOP replacement to Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) as Speaker of the House, after Ryan failed to pass the American Health Care Act out of the House and misled the public and President Donald Trump when he promised repeatedly the bill would pass. Ryan was caught on an audio file from October—obtained by Breitbart News and published a couple weeks ago—saying he is “not going to defend Donald Trump—not now, not in the future.” While the audio file does not make the comments clear, Ryan’s staff later claimed

Nearly three months after the Trump clan moved into their new posh Washington neighborhood, neighbors of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner have expressed their fury over the presidential family´s lack of community etiquette that is ´ruining´ the suburb. Residents have complained their new neighbors have been hogging parking on an already crowded street and leaving trash bags rotting on the curb. A big part of the complaint: a huge security presence, with even a trip to the playground requiring three vans. They have groused that sidewalks have been closed, public parking overrun and that the family and their staff can´t

BRUSSELS—Republican Senator John McCain revealed he hasn’t met the President Donald Trump in person since he took office, and he urged Trump to reach out to his opponents—Democratic and otherwise—ala Ronald Reagan if he wants to repeal Obamacare. “Do some outreach. Get to know some of these Democratic leaders,” he said. “You can find common ground.” McCain said he’d met Trump “some years ago” when he was a businessman, but had not met him since. McCain said he did speak “almost daily” to National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, however. “He doesn’t seem to

Donald Trump had heard enough about policy and process. It was Thursday afternoon and members of the House Freedom Caucus were peppering the president with wonkish concerns about the American Health Care Act—the language that would leave Obamacare’s “essential health benefits” in place, the community rating provision that limited what insurers could charge certain patients, and whether the next two steps of Speaker Paul Ryan’s master plan were even feasible—when Trump decided to cut them off."Forget about the little "stuff", Trump said, according to multiple sources in the room.

Broken promises are as old as politics itself, and there are many famous examples of them in modern history. President George H.W. Bush´s "read my lips, no new taxes" pledge comes immediately to mind, as does President Bill Clinton reneging on his middle-class tax cut, and President Barack Obama never closing Guantanamo Bay. But in each of those cases, those were promises that were made in a given campaign by a given politician. The promise of Obamacare repeal is much different. Republicans ran on repealing and replacing Obamacare for seven years, over the course of four election cycles. They won the

House Speaker Paul Ryan didn’t just step in it again, big time, on the Ryancare bill this week. The Wisconsin Republican unmasked himself as the man most capable of demolishing his own party and the Trump presidency. The Ryan American Healthcare Bill is a piece of moderate GOP trash that Mr. Ryan owns and has been trying and failing miserably to sell as the long-promised Republican repeal and replacement of Obamacare. By telling conservatives in the House and across America to go have intimate relations with themselves and not meddle in the medical-care matters of him and the rest of

Matryoshkas are Russian nesting dolls. Inside each doll are several others smaller but identically shaped characters until you get to the smallest one inside. Studying what we have learned of the timeline -- and we still don’t have the entire story -- we see Wikileaks, the smallest, at the core, and Obama as the largest piece in what is the most historically outrageous misuse of the people and institutions of government for partisan advantage.

Brexit was caused in part by climate change, former US Vice-President Al Gore has said, warning that extreme weather is creating political instability “the world will find extremely difficult to deal with”. Mr Gore, speaking at an event in which he previewed a sequel to his landmark 2006 documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, said the “principal” cause of the Syrian Civil War had been the worst drought in 900 years, which forced 1.5 million people to move from the countryside to the cities. There they met a similar number of Iraqis who had fled the conflict in their homeland, creating powder keg conditions

It is hard to overestimate the damage the Freedom Caucus has done to the fledgling presidency of Donald Trump, and to the country. By blocking the American Health Care Act of 2017, the conservative group has guaranteed that Americans will struggle forward under the burden of Obamacare. In the next few months insurers will announce their premium hikes for the coming year; chances are, given the continuing withdrawal of major companies from the marketplaces and the ongoing failure of the bill to attract enough young and healthy participants, the new rates will not be pretty. Last year premiums went up
