Your health care, Trump’s summer place, and a distaste for D.C.


President Trump gathers with Vice President Mike Pence and congressional Republicans in the Rose Garden of the White House after the House of Representatives approved the American Health Care Act to repeal major parts of Obamacare and replace it with the Republican health care plan, in Washington May 4, 2017.


Your health care

When House Republicans voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace the 2010 law with their own plan, it marked a sea change in what Americans can expect for health insurance coverage — if the bill gets through the Senate. We outline the legislation’s more prominent features and examine how it may end up affecting you.

Summer White House

Bedminster, New Jersey — home to Trump National Golf Club — is an affluent community, with more than a quarter of all families earning incomes above $200,000. But the infrastructure isn’t built for large crowds. Mr. Trump’s club sits on a two-lane road with no shoulder. Many here worry about who’s going to foot the bill for the added security when the president comes to town.

Fed up

Nearly seven in ten Americans disapprove of the job Congress is doing, according to the RealClearPolitics average. More than half feel the same way about President Trump. Frank Luntz says Americans are furious with their politicians and their political system, and he cites poll data to argue they’re demanding a completely new relationship with their government.

French election

Paris woke up today to discover its most symbolic structure had become a political billboard. Greenpeace unfurled a huge banner on the Eiffel Tower, bearing the French national slogan, “Liberty, Equality Fraternity.” It was interpreted as support for centrist presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron, and against his right wing, anti-immigration opponent Marine Le Pen.


One of the country’s largest vehicle donation charities, Kars4Kids, is the subject of a troubling report from Minnesota’s attorney general that accuses the non-profit of misleading donors. The attorney general says the group spent less than one percent of the millions raised in on Minnesota children. Instead, 90 percent of the cash allegedly went to help fund Jewish summer camps in New York.

“Blunt discussions”

Law enforcement officials’ “blunt discussions” with President Obama following the 2014 police shooting of an unarmed black teen in Ferguson, Mo., led to the former president’s change in tone when he spoke about police issues, CBS News correspondent Jeff Pegues says in this week’s “The Takeout” podcast.
