A Short Week ….

With the short week the news today will be all about the G20 session, the Trump/Putin meeting and the protesters. How will it go? Your assessment will be biased by where you get the reports on it all.

Some catch up details from us heading to the weekend:

Healthcare and the break:

Mitch McConnell was hoping the break would result in some of the eight no Republican votes to come around. But you know what? He lost one more this week. The bill looks dead.
So after eight years of voting to repeal and saying they had a better idea the Republicans have nothing.
Next step?
Let Obamacare continue, but you better manage avoiding the blame from Democrats that your non action has caused the disruption and is causing its collapse. Schumer and team will claim this and the MSM will provide cover. You better get ahead of this, because it’s not true.
Next we suggest again, call the congress back into session for August. Take the high road and create PeopleCare. Let the genius representatives argue it out and create a bill.

While on Congress:

The House passed Kate’s Law and it is on to the senate. Seems like a no issue law right? It would increase the penalties for deported aliens who try to return to the United States and are caught.
Yet Democrats are against it. The test for Mitch McConnell is to not play games and add it to another bill that gets rejected. Get it done. McConnell for all his ballyhooed genius has failed before. If he fails here we should all call for new leadership in the senate, one that does not play games.
Our prediction: The senate does not pass this.

The House also passed a bill that would deny federal grants to sanctuary cities.
We predict McConnell does not get this passed in the senate too.

Here’s an interesting story that may have connections:

There could be a connection here that the MSM may be missing. Follow this.
The DNC has refused to give access to its server to investigators of the Russian hacking. Seems odd doesn’t it? After all, the Democrats think Trump and team were behind it.
So why? No one knows. Here’s one thought.
There is a class action suit on behalf of three classes of people, arguing that the DNC must return donations to Bernie Sanders donors, DNC donors and Democrats in general, all donations given in the 2016 cycle. Why?
They claim that the DNC defrauded donors in the 2016 primary by failing to remain neutral during the contest.
Now we know what Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Donna Brazile were doing as DNC head and member to help Hillary. Might there be more on that server?
Just wondering.
