  • INDIANAPOLIS – “Make America Great Again?” As a child growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area I was aware of the civil rights and voting rights movements as they were taking place right at that time in what was called the Deep South, but I did not personally know of anyone participating in those activities. I did understand from the stories told to me by the elders of my family, especially on my mother’s side, that they had migrated to California from Louisiana because of the racism and oppressive economic conditions that kept so many Black families stagnant and systematically prevented them from progressing. So even though they were landowners, my great-grandmother, her 15 young adult children, and their families headed west. After all, my grandfather Rafe Taylor told me, in Louisiana if he was walking down a street and a white person was on the same side of the road, especially a white woman, he would have to cross the road or risk getting lynched. Those day-to-day experiences, among others, were just too much to bear. America wasn’t so great at that time.

  • Rep. Walorski backs the RyanCare bill
    "With the American Health Care Act, we are delivering on our promise to the American people to repeal Obamacare and repair our nation's health care system. These improvements will better help individuals and families access affordable health care and give states greater flexibility to implement innovative reforms like those in Indiana. President Trump met with House Republicans this morning and made clear he is with us 100 percent to deliver on our promise to the American people. I look forward to voting for this legislation and working with my colleagues in the Senate to get it to the president's desk." - U.S. Jackie Walorski, R-Jimtown, saying she will vote for the American Health Care Act.

  • Trump and truth
    The Obamacare repeal is teetering in the House. Why? Remember the old story of the boy who cried wolf? President Trump’s penchant for lies is beginning to take such a toll that NBC reporter Kasie Hunt said this morning that some members wonder if he’ll even be around in a year. So when Trump threatened retribution against recalcitrant House members on Tuesday, its impact was dubious. The Wall Street Journal editorialized today: “If President Trump announces that North Korea launched a missile that landed within 100 miles of Hawaii, would most Americans believe him? Would the rest of the world? We’re not sure, which speaks to the damage that Mr. Trump is doing to his Presidency with his seemingly endless stream of exaggerations, evidence-free accusations, implausible denials and other falsehoods. The latest example is Mr. Trump’s refusal to back off his Saturday morning tweet of three weeks ago.” The other emerging dynamic is that the Pence/Marc Short legislative team hasn’t done the legwork on the RyanCare bill. It could all come down to Vice President Pence, HHS Secretary Tom Price and OMB Director Mick Mulvaney to round up about eight votes and keep Republicans like Rep. Hollingsworth in the fold. - Brian A. Howey, publisher
