The News

May 25, 2017

It’s Thursday. Yesterday the Congressional Budget Office released its assessment of the Republican health care proposal, finding that the bill passed by the House at the beginning of the month would reduce insurance coverage for 23 million Americans while cutting the deficit by $119 billion over the next decade. In other headline news, more stories leaked involving Russia, President Trump, and the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails that you can read about below.

Elsewhere, British troops made several raids and arrests of individuals wanted in connection to Monday’s bombing in Manchester and the Montana Republican candidate for Congress received misdemeanor assault charges for attacking a reporter who asked him for his opinion on the CBO’s analysis of the GOP health care plan.

As per usual, good luck on the day ahead and thanks for checking out Wonks This Way.
