Obamacare kept reducing number of Americans without health insurance during Trump's first months in

Office - Dan Mangan CNBC - Published 5 Hours Ago

The nation's rate of people without health insurance was at historically low levels during President Donald Trump's first several months in office, at the same time he was pushing hard for the elimination of Obamacare, new federal data show.

The data, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is sure to be used as a measuring stick for how Trump administration policies affect the nation's uninsured rate, which has plummeted since the rollout of the Affordable Care Act.

In the first three months of 2017, just 8.8 percent of Americans — or 28.1 million people — lacked health insurance, the CDC said.

That is about 500,000 fewer uninsured people than in 2016, a difference that the CDC called "nonsignificant" in a report issued by the agency Tuesday.

How is this "nonsignificant"? LOL. I wonder who came up with that adjective.

Trump Is Dividing The Country, U.S. Voters Say 2-1, Quinnipiac University National Poll Finds

Most Trust Media More Than President.

President Donald Trump is doing more to divide the country, 62 percent of voters say, while 31 percent say he is doing more to unite the country, his worst score on this question, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today.

President Trump gets a negative 35 - 59 percent overall job approval rating, down from a negative 39 - 57 percent rating in an August 17 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN- uh-pe-ack) University. Every party, gender, education, age and racial group disapproves except Republicans, who approve 77 - 14 percent; white voters with no college, approving 52 - 40 percent, and white men, who approve by a narrow 50 - 46 percent.

American voters disapprove 60 - 32 percent of Trump's response to the events in Charlottesville.

Fridays are lawyers' favorite day. Phucking up your weekend is their speciality.

I know it's early but will the Mueller shoe drop? I think it's a size 18.

Maybe this is sacrilegious but I've often thought that

Lincoln left the South off too easily. Their representation in Congress should maybe have been delayed for at lest a generation or more. Of course we'll never know and it's a moot point but I do think about that.

Japan and Germany are not a problem. Trumpklanland has been for going on two hundred years.

Pukes hiding out make John Dillinger look like an amateur.

Where or where have they gone?

Special counsel's Russia probe loses top FBI investigator

Source: ABC

One of the FBI's top investigators, tapped by special counsel Robert Mueller just weeks ago to help lead the probe of Russian meddling in last year's presidential election, has left Mueller’s team, sources tell ABC News.

The recent departure of FBI veteran Peter Strzok is the first known hitch in a secretive probe that by all public accounts is charging full-steam ahead. Just last week, news surfaced that Mueller's team had executed a search warrant at the Virginia home of Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort. And the week before that ABC News confirmed Mueller is now using a federal grand jury in Washington, D.C., to collect documents and other evidence.

A spokesman for the special counsel's office declined to comment.
