Story at Politico, excerpt at the DC Drain, image from politico(.com).

ㅤ”‘The House passed health care, the House has already passed its budget, which is the first step of tax reform. The Senate hasn’t done any of that. Hell, the Senate can’t pass any of our confirmations,’ Mick Mulvaney fumed in an interview, slapping a table for emphasis. ‘You ask me if the Republican-controlled Senate is an impediment to the administration’s agenda: All I can tell you is so far, the answer’s yes.’
ㅤThe revulsion for the Senate’s age-old traditions and byzantine procedure boiled over in public repeatedly on Monday. Trump complained in front of TV cameras that the Senate is ‘not getting the job done’ and said he sees where Steve Bannon — his former chief strategist now planning to run primary challengers against incumbent Republican senators — ‘is coming from.'”

Trump on Russia probe: ‘The American public is sick of it’ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ……

Story at Politico, excerpt at the DC Drain, image from politico(.com).

ㅤ”The president, who has dismissed the probes as ‘fake news,’ again blasted Democratic officials, claiming they continue to use the investigation as an ‘excuse’ for their defeat during the 2016 presidential election.”
ô¿ô
ㅤI think the President’s claim is incorrect. The Dems intend to keep the investigation going through the 2018 midterms. The Republicans MUST stop the Dems from doing that.

Efforts to pry loose Trump tax returns hit a wall ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ……

Story at Politico, excerpt at the DC Drain, image from politico(.com).

ㅤ”LOS ANGELES — Efforts to pry loose President Donald Trump’s tax returns at the state level have hit a wall, stalling in statehouses across the country including in California, a hotbed of anti-Trump resistance.
ㅤDemocratic Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed legislation late Sunday that would have forced presidential candidates to make their tax returns public before appearing on the California ballot, marking the death there of a measure once ballyhooed by Democrats and open government advocates as an end-run to Trump’s refusal to disclose his tax filings.”
