Jul 24 2017 - Russia

Presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner is set to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee this morning, and what is striking about his extensive opening statement is the degree to which it seeks to insulate Kushner himself from any culpability or responsibility for the problematic known facts about the Russia affair — particularly the known facts that concern Donald Trump Jr.feedback

May 04 2017 - Republican Party

House GOP leaders are confidently forging ahead with the repeal-and-replace vote today, and they are laughing off questions as to why they would go forward despite their willfully premature and dim understanding of how the measure might impact millions of Americans and one-sixth of the U.S. economy. They are doing this without seeing a nonpartisan analysis of their new bill from the Congressional Budget Office — which will, conveniently, allow them to conceal the full truth of what they are voting for from their constituents.feedback

Apr 18 2017 - Trump Presidency

President Trump has reversed himself on a lot of campaign promises lately, and some have rushed to credit him with learning on the job. While one hopes he is capable of this, his reversals also reflect the less admirable factor that his original campaign agenda was mostly fraudulent — and is now colliding violently with reality.feedback

Apr 17 2017 - American politics

The 100-day mark of the Trump presidency is approaching, and his aides are worried that the media narrative will depict his historically awful lack of accomplishments with highly unflattering levels of accuracy. But don’t tell that to President Trump. He knows the real problem is that the news media won’t acknowledge how terrific the start to his presidency has actually been in comparison with his loser predecessors.feedback

Apr 14 2017 - NATO

Everyone in Washington is struggling to make sense of Donald Trump’s reversals on multiple issues. The Post reports that “establishment” Republicans are relieved to see him governing more as one of them, as evidenced by his new support for NATO and the Export-Import Bank. Meanwhile, the rising influence of Goldman Sachs banker Gary Cohn inside the administration has some discerning a more “moderate” and “centrist” Trump on various issues, such as our posture on trade with China, and others seeing the emergence of a “pragmatic” Trump.feedback

Apr 13 2017 - Wall Street

President Trump likes headlines that portray him as a man of action, so he’s probably pleased with the barrage of Thursday headlines about his latest move on health care. ABC News, CNN, The Wall Street Journal, and many others all inform us that Trump is “threatening” to sabotage the Affordable Care Act to force Democrats to make a deal with him on its future. “Threaten” is a verb that is laden with action, purpose, and intimations of concealed leverage and power. Awesome!feedback

Apr 12 2017

Washington is abuzz with chatter about President Trump’s latest comments concerning his chief ideologist, Stephen K. Bannon, which suggest he may be on his way out. Trump said this.feedback

Apr 11 2017 - Affordable Care Act

Ever since the GOP repeal-and-replace bill crashed, President Trump has confidently vowed that it’s only a matter of time until Democrats come groveling to him on their knees, begging for a deal that will save them from the collapse of the Affordable Care Act. In other words, Trump and Republicans needn’t take any steps to shore up the ACA’s exchanges, because they have all the leverage in the battle over its future — indeed, they have suggested, the ACA’s implosion is inevitable, ongoing and already nearly complete.feedback

Apr 10 2017 - American politics

The Republican Congress has essentially built a protective wall around President Trump — and at times, this can make efforts to bring transparency or accountability to his unprecedented conflicts of interest and serial shredding of democratic and governing norms appear hopeless.feedback

Apr 07 2017

On Thursday night, President Trump announced that he had ordered the launch of 59 cruise missiles at a Syrian military installation, in retaliation for chemical attacks by the government of Bashar al-Assad that killed scores of Syrian civilians, including children.feedback

Apr 06 2017

Stephen K. Bannon has proved remarkably talented at creating a media mystique around himself. With his diligent assistance, he has been portrayed as both a virtuoso of deliberately orchestrated disruption and an avenging angel to working-class people (such as his father) who have been betrayed by global and financial elites. Bannon cleverly wields chaos to destabilize those elite foes in service of an economic nationalist mission that borders on Messianism.feedback

Apr 05 2017 - Supreme Court

As of now, Sen. Jeff Merkley continues to speak on the Senate floor, in an effort to prevent Neil Gorsuch from getting confirmed to the Supreme Court. But despite the Oregon Democrat’s valiant effort, which has lasted at least 14 hours, Gorsuch’s confirmation appears inevitable. On Wednesday the Senate will vote on Gorsuch; Democrats will filibuster; and Republicans will subsequently eliminate the filibuster on Supreme Court nominees, allowing Gorsuch to get through.feedback

Apr 04 2017 - Obamacare

The news of the morning is that the White House and congressional conservatives are suddenly optimistic that a new compromise is within reach that would enable repeal-and-replace to pass the House. The White House may roll out this plan today, and no doubt President Trump is excited that the “win” he craves — wiping out his predecessor’s signature achievement, regardless of the promises it breaks or the human toll it enacts — may again be within reach.feedback

Apr 03 2017

Everyone in Washington is trying to figure out why President Trump’s agenda has stalled on multiple fronts and why his approval numbers are swirling down the toilet. CNN’s Chris Cillizza suggests Trump’s penchant for disruption and chaos actually works against him (I agree). Others point to Trump’s failure to forge relationships on Capitol Hill.feedback

Mar 31 2017

You know it’s not a good day for President Trump when his first morning tweet declares that a former senior member of his administration should ask for immunity from prosecution in exchange for truthful testimony in an investigation into his own campaign’s conduct. Yet this is exactly what just happened.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Climate change

President Trump’s new efforts to dramatically roll back our current climate change policies — which will effectively end the United States’ leadership role in securing science-based international cooperation against global warming — constitute perhaps the clearest sign yet that his administration will be animated by contempt for science and fact-based governing.feedback

Mar 29 2017 - Democratic Party

President Trump is now claiming he really, really wants to make a big deal with Democrats, striking a rhetorically conciliatory pose after previously suggesting that Democrats would come to him on their knees begging him to bail them out once Obamacare collapsed all around them. ABC News reports that Trump told Senators at a White House reception on Tuesday night that a deal is “going to happen,” because “we’ve all been promising — Democrat, Republican — we’ve all been promising that to the American people.”.feedback

Mar 27 2017 - Affordable Care Act

Now that the GOP plan to wipe out Obamacare lies in smoking ruins, President Trump is mulling a new and fiendishly clever scheme: allow the law to collapse, or even further undermine it through executive action, and pin the blame for the resulting human toll on Democrats. As it happens, Trump does have the tools to inflict immense damage on the Affordable Care Act and hurt a lot of people in the process.feedback

Mar 22 2017 - Republican Party

The fate of the GOP health plan appears to hang in the balance, with GOP leaders still struggling to find the votes to pass it in the House. There is widespread disagreement both about the bill and its prospects for passage. But one thing appears to be widely agreed upon: Trump has now “taken ownership” of this bill.feedback

Mar 21 2017

The events of this week are revealing with a new level of clarity that President Trump and the White House have ventured far beyond unconventional levels of dishonesty. Instead, they are revealing on their part something more remarkable and challenging to our system: a kind of deep rot of bad faith — a profound contempt for democratic process and the possibility of agreement on shared reality — that is wildly beyond anything in recent memory and strains the limits of our political vocabulary.feedback

Mar 20 2017 - Republican Party

Little by little, it is sinking in that President Trump’s agenda will hurt untold numbers of his voters, on multiple fronts. New reporting indicates that some voters in Appalachia worry that Trump will champion cuts to regional development and that some Rust Belt supporters now fear that the GOP replacement for Obamacare will deny them coverage. GOP senators such as Susan Collins (Maine) and Bill Cassidy (La.) are now suggesting that Trump-friendly demographics will be directly harmed.feedback

Mar 17 2017

A new CNN poll out this morning tests one of the fundamental tenets of the Trump and Bannon worldview in a very illuminating way. It finds that large majorities reject the basic idea that undocumented immigrants who have been in this country for a long time — and have not committed serious crimes — should nonetheless be subject to removal.feedback

Mar 15 2017 - Republican Party

The story of the morning is that the GOP health plan may be in trouble, because even allies of President Trump are warning him to ditch it before he gets dragged down along with it. The alarm they are sounding is simple: By embracing Paul Ryan’s plan, which would dramatically slash taxes on the richest Americans while massively rolling back coverage for the poorest Americans, he is losing touch with the “populist” message and ideological heterodoxy that helped drive his appeal to working class voters.feedback

Mar 14 2017 - Republican Party

On Tuesday morning, the White House kept up its attacks on the Congressional Budget Office, which has found, devastatingly, that the GOP health-care plan supported by President Trump would result in 24 million fewer people with health coverage. As budget director Mick Mulvaney put it on Fox News: “Welcome to Washington, where the CBO says it’s sunny and 75 degrees.”.feedback

Mar 13 2017 - Republican Party

The White House and Republicans are bracing for bad news in the Congressional Budget Office score of the new GOP health plan, which could come as early as Monday. It is expected to find that the GOP effort — which President Trump has endorsed — could leave many millions without coverage, and on the Sunday shows, top Trump advisers sought to discredit the CBO’s finding in advance.feedback

Mar 10 2017 - Republican Party

Ever since President Trump was elected, launching the latest GOP drive to destroy Obamacare, some of us speculated that the GOP approach would hit many Trump voters hard. Trump strongly indicated to his working-class white supporters that he would not adopt a typical Republican’s ideological stance on health care that would leave many of them stranded. But now he has.feedback

Mar 09 2017 - Republican Party

The GOP drive to destroy Obamacare took another hit on Thursday morning, when conservative Senator Tom Cotton tweeted that the House GOP repeal-and-replace bill is probably dead on arrival in the Senate. Cotton even called on his House colleagues to “start over.” The Arkansas Republican is an ally of Trump — who favors the GOP bill — so this is somewhat significant.feedback

Mar 08 2017 - Immigration

The set of policy proposals and ideas loosely known as Trumpism goes something like this: President Trump is not an ideological fellow traveler of congressional Republicans on the economy, the safety net and immigration. Unlike Paul Ryan Republicans, he sees a robust government role in maintaining protections for the poor, sick and old; and he is much more willing than other Republicans to slam the brakes on immigration to protect blue collar whites from global forces that are making them feel culturally, economically and demographically destabilized.feedback

Mar 08 2017

The changes to the Medicaid expansion and the subsidy system would take hold at the beginning of 2020.feedback

Mar 07 2017 - Affordable Care Act

House Republicans have finally rolled out their long-awaited bill repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act. It’s anyone’s guess whether it will actually pass. But even if it does, the structure of the GOP replacement all but ensures that the Obamacare wars will continue right through the 2018 and 2020 elections — in ways that numerous Republicans might come to regret. Bigly.feedback

Mar 03 2017 - Travel ban

We keep hearing that President Trump will roll out the new version of his travel ban any day now. The White House delayed it earlier this week, because Trump advisers reportedly thought it could step on the good press he’d earned from his speech, thus inadvertently undercutting their own claims that enacting the ban is an urgent national security matter.feedback

Mar 02 2017

The news is breaking that two prominent Republicans — House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz — are now calling on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from ongoing FBI investigations into Russian meddling in the election. This comes after The Post reported that Sessions twice spoke with the Russian ambassador during the election, after having claimed under oath that he had not had contact with Russian officials.feedback
