The US Senate released their version of healthcare reform and the visual of the day was of people in wheelchairs being arrested outside the Capitol Hill Office of Senator Mitch McConnell. The Majority Leader who makes Darth Vader look kind and gentle, is determined to jam a bill across the finish line by next Friday’s 4th of July recess week. We’ll discuss.
Theresa May is still in trouble with her potential DUP partners and senior Tories over Brexit and spending. Seems she is willing to upset the fragile peace in Northern Ireland to save her flailing government. That certainly is anything but strong and secure leadership and much more like the US Republicans who will push their agenda no matter what! Add to the list of people upset with the Tin Lady business owners, bankers, farmers (whose migrant workforce pickers are staying away in droves and have labelled the UK xenophobic) and EU residents living here for a lifetime and she is now struggling to sell her hard Brexit because daily stories show its truly shambolic nature.
