May 10, 2019 ways to make money in – the week in congress

In more contentious matters the house again attempted to pass ways to make money in H.R. 2157 – supplemental appropriations act, 2019 that provides needed money for past forest fires and ways to make money in other disasters. Republicans have consistently voted ‘NO’ on this bill largely because it offers more funds for ways to make money in puerto rico to dig out from hurricane maria last year. Not much hope for passage in the republican-held senate.

Another stickler for house democrats is H.R. 986 – protecting americans with preexisting conditions act of 2019. The trump and former republican congress went great lengths to ways to make money in undermine the patient protection and affordable care act (obamacare). This bill aims to correct a recent effort that came ways to make money in out of the republican alternative healthcare bill that was promised ways to make money in by trump to lower premiums, provide more care options and cost the government less. Among the nonsense points they asserted was that states can ways to make money in do better for their residents if they re given a ways to make money in waiver on how to spend the healthcare money. The piece of law the bill nullifies sounds good, “section 1332 of the affordable care act (ACA) permits a state to apply for a state innovation waiver ways to make money in (now also referred to as a state relief and empowerment ways to make money in waiver) to pursue innovative strategies for providing their residents with access ways to make money in to high quality, affordable health insurance while retaining the basic protections of the ways to make money in ACA” but it became obvious that the waivers actually allowed states ways to make money in to offer cheapo policies that do not cover the preexisting ways to make money in conditions that obamacare actually covered. This bill that protects those with preexisting conditions passed on ways to make money in party-lines. 230 – 183, 1 present (roll no. 196).

The senate continues to move an enormous backlog of nominations ways to make money in and appointments. Senate leadership seems willing to give a vote to H.R. 9. The bill requires, essentially, that the US stays in the paris climate accord agreement ways to make money in that trump removed the US from in 2017 the bill ways to make money in passed the house with all republicans voting against it, a similar fate expected in the senate.

It goes like this; attorney general barr lied to congress under oath when he ways to make money in said he was not aware of special counsel robert muller’s opinion about barr’s 4 page summary of the mueller report stating that ways to make money in there was no collusion or obstruction on the part of ways to make money in trump and associates when, in fact, he had received a letter from mueller expressing his concern ways to make money in with barr’s conclusions. There were other comments he made that were of questionable ways to make money in truth. Basically barr made many statements that appeared to be protecting ways to make money in trump.

House judiciary chair jerrold nadler (D-NY) subpoenaed barr for the full unredacted mueller report so that ways to make money in his committee could meet its constitutional responsibility of oversight. Barr ignored the subpoena putting him in contempt of congress. Barr was then subpoenaed to appear before the judiciary committee ways to make money in and ignored that subpoena. Today, barr addressed a meeting and mocked the contempt charge. Think about it; no legal explanation or response to being held in contempt, just making fun of it.

We are a nation of laws and the constitution is ways to make money in the basis of all laws thereafter passed at a federal ways to make money in level and in state, county and municipal governments and even in the rules and ways to make money in bylaws of businesses and social organization. (robert’s rules of order) it assures us not only of our rights but extends ways to make money in into procedures that protect out rights when they are threatened.

To ignore the constitution and to ignore the subpoenas that ways to make money in were issued well within the framework of the judiciary committee’s constitutional responsibilities and rights is to ignore the freedoms ways to make money in and rights the constitution guarantees us all. When the occupant of the white house and the head ways to make money in guy in charge of enforcing our laws ignore the law ways to make money in and joke about it, we are in a crisis because, frankly, those guys can do whatever they want and we can’t touch them.

House republicans are besides themselves considering that trump jr. Already lied to the senate intelligence committee and is liable ways to make money in for contempt if the subject comes up and he does ways to make money in not clear the record. Because of that those republican senators with suspicious minds are ways to make money in not comforted by the committee chair, sen richard burr’s (R-NC) history of fairness and taking non-partisan actions in his investigations but rather, after hearing after hearing have attempted to keep information on ways to make money in the mueller report and various testimonies from going public they ways to make money in suspect one of their own is jumping ship. That is not likely mainly because burr does have some ways to make money in ethics and, like other committees investigating the russian matter and trump’s actions, is doing the job the constitution requires him to do.

There’s more; treasury secretary steve mnuchin has refused to turn over to ways to make money in the house ways and means committee 6 years of trump ways to make money in tax returns stating that the committee has no legislative reason ways to make money in for wanting the tax returns. Mnuchin’s resistance may not matter, though, as the new york legislature just passed a bill allowing ways to make money in several US house committees access to trump’s new york tax returns.
