The Senate Democratic leader, Chuck Schumer, said in a statement: “Ultimately, the Trumpcare bill failed because of two traits that have plagued the Trump presidency since he took office: incompetence and broken promises. In my life, I have never seen an administration as incompetent as the one occupying the White House today.

“They can’t write policy that actually makes sense, they can’t implement the policies they do manage to write, they can’t get their stories straight, and [today we’ve learned that they can’t close a deal, and they can’t count votes.*

“So much for The Art of the Deal.”

Love the verbiage here: "humiliating defeat."

Great news: GOP pulls unimaginably cruel health care bill!
Not so great: I expect it’s because it wasn’t cruel enough.

Finally, some GOOD news.

“Robo-calls are the No. 1 consumer complaint to the FCC from members of the American public,” he said, vowing to halt people who, in some cases, pretend to be tax officials demanding payments from consumers, or, in other cases, ask leading questions that prompt consumers to give up personal information as part of an identity theft scam.

More than 1 in 10 U.S. adults has been a victim to phone scams, said FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn, citing a December study by the call-blocking company CPR Call Blocker.

...Many robo-callers deliberately “spoof” their phone numbers, he said, to hide the true origins of their call. Phone companies are largely supportive of the FCC's campaign; last year, AT&T helped form an industry group to devise ways to fight robo-calls and spoofing.

Protecting private property rights against government incursion is a hot-button issue for many of the same conservatives who also worry about border security. In Texas, politicians in both parties resist the idea of a full-length border wall, calling it far too costly compared with more high-tech solutions.
Trump's budget calls for $4.1 billion toward the wall through 2018. The funds would come from general revenue — that is, U.S. taxpayers.

Despite being a non-believer, the prog rock hero says he has a “huge affinity for the deeds and traditions” of Christianity.

[Ian Anderson] added: “The bringing together of people of all backgrounds, cultures and faiths in this way is possible, perhaps, only under the auspices of modern Christianity, especially the Anglican Church. So, if I can help to draw people in to these beautiful and historic buildings to savour just a little of the spirit of Christmas, it seems like a worthwhile effort.”

The Very Reverend Jerry Lepine, Dean of Bradford, said: “He has a real feel for the financial burden of keeping these buildings going, and also their heritage. He loves playing gigs in these kinds of places at Christmas.

“Really what they are doing is giving us a massive Christmas gift, all the money will go towards helping the Cathedral pay its way, and for that we are incredibly grateful to him."
