In other news, Scott Pruitt's EPA will review the fuel economy standards adopted by the Obama administration. The results of the review won't be due until sometime in 2018.

Meanwhile, the Pizzagate gunman will reportedly plead guilty for opening fire at Comet Ping Pong in D.C. The exact details of his plea agreement aren't available yet.

Finally, Paul Ryan may be thinking about taking Trump down with him as his agenda crashes and burns.

“Now that we have our score from the CBO, that’s something that we were waiting for, now that we’ve got it we’ve got room to make refinements. Obviously the major components are staying intact, because this is something we wrote with President Trump, this is something we wrote with the Senate committees,” Ryan told Fox Business. “This is the plan we ran on all of last year, this is the plan that we’ve been working — House, Senate, White House — together on.”

If there really is a secret war being waged between Paul Ryan and Steve Bannon as some people have speculated, I expect Bannon will win. Paul Ryan is a fraud.

In related news, Rep. Dave Brat says he'll vote against Ryancare in committee tomorrow.

You can really hear the classic western vibes in this track. It's been two weeks since I saw Logan in the theater and I'm still thinking about it.

  • These asshats are always yammering about regulations inhibiting innovation. You know one of the causes of innovation in the auto industry? Fuel economy standards. Nothing like a requirement to get your car up to 60 mpg to inspire innovation.

    Their “plan” is pretty clear. Fuck the lower and middle incomes where most Americans live and welcome to rationing of healthcare based on income and wealth.
    The insurance company as a giant “death panel”. But one can rest assured that the environment will be trashed, some kid just wanting to go to the bathroom will be harassed and the 1% will get a whopping tax cut, there will be no capital gains or estate tax, no matter how large the estate, and Jared Kushner and the trump kids can use their positions in the US government to go “global”. So that will work out well for the “rust belt” rural voter. Oh, and somehow the country will become “homogenous”.
    Like the Borg. Or something.

    • Well, when you put it like that…..

        I do. Because that is the way it is. PERIOD.

    Oh, so that’s what kept them from having a plan for the past 8 years. They needed to have the score on their plan from the CBO before they could make their plan.
