Millions of our fellow citizens are watching us now gathered in this great chamber hoping that we will govern not as two parties but as one nation.

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump isn't playing it straight when it comes to his campaign pledge not to undercut health coverage for people with pre-existing medical conditions. Five weeks before midterm elections, he is telling voters that those provisions "are safe," even as his Justice Department is arguing in court that those protections in the Affordable Care Act should fall. The short-term health plans Trump often promotes as a bargain alternative to "Obamacare" offer no guarantee of covering pre-existing conditions. On the economy, the president exaggerates his role in boosting jobs for black Americans and falsely claims a retooled trade agreement with South Korea will help U.S. farmers. He offers a head-scratching response after the Federal Reserve acted to raise interest rates. Reliving the 2016 election, yet again, Trump also wrongly states he won the women's vote. The misrepresentations came in a memorable week in which all eyes were on Supreme Court nominee Brett … [Read more...] about AP FACT CHECK: Trump’s falsehoods on health plan protections

THE PROGNOSIS Trump attorney Michael Cohen in New York. (AP Photo/Mary Altaffer) Swiss pharmaceutical giant Novartis spends gobs of money aimed at influencing policy in Washington. But directing some of it to President Trump’s personal lawyer doesn’t seem to have been a great strategy — and is backfiring in a big way. Novartis said yesterday it didn’t gain special access to the president or his policies, despite its $1.2 million contract with a shell company run by his attorney Michael Cohen – the same firm used to pay Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about her alleged affair with Trump. Not only that, but the drugmaker is caught up in a flurry of new reports that Robert Mueller, head of the investigation into Russian election interference, is scrutinizing clients who paid Cohen. It was Daniels’s lawyer, Michael Avenatti, who revealed Tuesday that Novartis and several other companies made payments to Cohen’s … [Read more...] about The Health 202: Novartis spends big in Washington.
