  • WHO KNEW? That health care stuff is tough, Trump says today.
Elections have consequences.

The new head of the EPA has delayed a mining cleanup rule.

The Jeff Sessions Justice Department is dropping a six-year effort to prove that a Texas voter ID law was meant to discourage minorities from voting. Said Common Cause:

When you choose an unrepentant critic of the Voting Rights Act to lead the Department of Justice, more and more Americans will lose their right to vote. This about-face by Jeff Sessions’ DOJ is exactly the type of action Common Cause warned of when it opposed Sessions’ nomination to serve as U.S. Attorney General. Jeff Sessions’ see-no-evil posture on voting rights abuses naively lets discrimination stand – and flies in the face of a representative democracy.

In saying he'd soon have a plan on changes to Obamacare, President Trump said,  “It’s an unbelievably complex subject, nobody knew that health care could be so complicated.”
