Congress

Repeal? Replace? Repair? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Despite promising to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act for the last seven years, Republicans are no closer to reaching agreement on an alternative to the ACA. So, what do they do now?

Trouble in Paradise?

A dream scenario for Congressional Republicans: control of Congress and the White House. But things aren’t going according to plan. At the GOP retreat last week, Congressional Republicans expected to unify their Party and come up with a plan to govern. Instead, Congressional leaders and the Trump Administration walked away more divided than ever.
