Health Care Update:

 

2 ACA replacement plans have been released: 

 

Rand Paul's Plan

 

And a laymans term breakdown of it

 

Cassidy-Collins Plan:

 

 

And a laymans term breakdown of what it

 



 

We're still waiting on the full Plan from President Trump's HHS, if and upon his confirmation. Meanwhile President Trump's executive order  would help lay the grounds for the repeal of the individual mandate. 

 



 

Building on the Rust Belt:

 

President Trump has also met with Union leader and is fostering a closer bond to them than may be expected from a "Republican"

 

This can be furthered by the large infrastructure projects President Trump is pushing for, including but not exclusive to the wall (See Teamster Leader being quite open and supportive of the wall). Redoing/exiting large trade-deals such as NAFTA and TPP to look after the American worker is hugely popular

 

This is further in line with the Bannon goal of converting the GOP into the worker's party. This would help secure the Rust Belt if President Trump keeps at it. Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Indiana,  Virginia should be the ideal goals to flip or maintain for 2018 and 2020

 

Teamster President's Response

 

AFL-CIO Response

 

Other Union and Business Leader's responses 

 



 


 


 

As does the Senate Leader

 

President Trump maintains that mexico will pay for it; while it's unlikely that Mexico will directly pay for it, the use of repatriation would achieve the same result 

 

Mexican President Bluffs threatening to cancel meeting

 

President Trump suggests canceling the meeting 

 

Mexico Backs off, meeting is still on

 


 

PESO tanks, DOW crosses 20100. Stays above 20k

 



 

Executive Order to pull funds from Sanctuary Cities has also been signed 

 

NY AG promises to fight as do major Sanctuary City Mayors

 



 

President Trump will meet Prime Minister May Friday. Post Brexit UK and US are likely to start planning for a much closer bilateral trade agreement. 

 



 


 

Trump Job Approval: Approve 59% Disapprove 41% - 1/26/2017

 



 

Former State Department Top Brass Resign

 



 

Elon Musk pushing President Trump to accept Carbon Tax (instead of a Cap and Trade policy). Revenue Neutral, w/ things like sales and income tax cuts to offset along with lessening of other regulations

Regulation Executive Order: For each new regulation added, two will be removed. 

 

Any chance we know what regulations he plans on removing yet? It's hard to weigh in on this without any sort of indication of what's actually being done.

At the moment, no. It's largely a preventative measure against Ad Hoc regulation additions. But he did make a claim that there would be a 75% reduction in regulation. No doubt that's a rather high number, but we should be expecting some cuts

 


 

For fiscal 2017, it gives a budget of $0 for new regulations.

 

Ok, so we don't have the full document yet, but the idea is, if a department wants to make a new regulation they have to provide two regulations they can cut, to have a revenue neutral process. Basically new regulations cannot impose a financial stress on the economy beyond the current setting. It's a regulation freeze in other words. That being said, it only extends to 2017, and we don't know if this policy will stand from 2018 onward. This explains it pretty well

Alternative Senate rule to bypass filibuster without invoking Nuclear Option 

 

Again, this language is so vague it's actually kinda funny. But, as I said, it's impossible to weigh in on if this is good or bad depending on the regulations. Knowing the purpose of regulations, there's a big chance that it's more negative than positive overall, but there's no way of knowing until we know what the heck Trump is doing.

 

The fact that the language is so vague and no information is more concerning than anything, though. It tells me that the regulations being removed won't have a positive impact on the workforce/employees, or the environment or whatever else besides the big business owners, and that this information is being withheld to avoid public backlash.

Wednesday, February 1st
 
COMMITTEE VOTE 9:40AM- Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee is expected to vote on recommending Mick Mulvaney for director of the Office of Management and Budget. He will also need the recommendation from the Budget Committee.
 
COMMITTEE VOTE 10:30 AM- The Senate Judiciary committee, after a one week delay and an additional one yesterday, is expected to vote on recommending Senator Jeff Sessions for Attorney General. Senator Sessions faces considerable partisan resistance, though unlike Betsy Devos, has already received the support of at least one Democratic colleague, Senator Joe Manchin. Expect close to a party-line vote in committee.
 
COMMITTEE VOTE 10:45AM -The Environment and Public Works committee is expected to vote on recommending Scott Pruitt as Environmental Protection Agency administrator. Mr. Pruitt has received some of the strongest pushback from Senate Democrats, and may be confirmed on a party-line vote.
 
FINAL VOTE exact time undetermined– The full Senate, at close of debate window, is expected to vote on confirming Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State, assuming cloture is invoked today (it was).
 
Cabinet nominees approved by committee and waiting on a full Senate vote
 
Dr. Ben Carson (HUD) was recommended by committee last week and is awaiting a floor vote.
 
Mr. Wilbur Ross (Commerce) was also recommended by his committee last week and is awaiting a floor vote.
 
Mrs. Betsy Devos (Education) was also recommended by her committee today and is awaiting a floor vote.
 
Rick Perry (Energy) was also recommended by his committee today and is awaiting a floor vote.
 
Rep. Ryan Zinke (interior) was also recommended by his committee today and is awaiting a floor vote.
 
Linda McMahon (SBA) was also recommended by her committee today, and is awaiting a floor vote.
 
COMMITTEE VOTES ON HOLD: The Senate Finance Committee was scheduled to vote on recommending Representative Tom Price for Secretary of Health and Human Services and Steve Munchin for Secretary of the Treasury, but Democratic members boycotted the vote. As Republicans, including Rep. Price, are determined to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, a signature work of the Democratic Party and the Obama Administration, expect a party-line vote in committee, whenever that happens.

Although I would personally prefer the ACA being repealed and that being the end of that; With no replacement. However if I had to pick an "alternative" to it I would choose Rand Paul's plan. It makes use of a tax credit system, gets rid of the mandate, and those with pre existing conditions have temporary coverage.

Why would you want to go back to a system that killed 45,000 people every year due to a lack of sufficient coverage? That's inhumane.

 

I hope Trump at least gives us a public option but that's probably a pipe dream.

http://www.cnbc.com/2017/02/03/seattle-federal-judge-grants-temporary-restraining-order-on-immigration-ban-on-nationwide-basis.html

 

I apologise for the rather shitty source, but still. I believe a Federal Judge in Seattle has issued a temporary restraining order on the the Immigration Executive Order, suspending most of it's function, for one week. I expect a continued series of challenges like this against the order that may leave it non-functioning until it is redefined to be a manner that would appear more consititutional. The ban applies nationally, so the state of things is back to how it was before the order.
