Driving the Day Good Saturday morning. WHY THE WHITE HOUSE PUSH FOR HEALTH CARE COULD RUIN CHANCES FOR TAX REFORM -- Republicans have been promising to repeal and replace Obamacare for almost a decade. But if they jam an Obamacare bill through the House, it could seriously complicate their chances for tax reform. Why? Because they are using reconciliation -- a budgetary tool -- to gut Obamacare. And if they are successful at passing the repeal with reconciliation, they’d need to pass another budget to allow them to begin tax reform. Do you think passing a 2018 budget will be easy? No. It will be very difficult. And that’s basically the only way for Congress to pass a tax-reform bill. White House insiders say this obvious -- and critical -- dynamic hasn’t been discussed much.Story Continued Below DESPITE ALL OF THAT, the White House seems hell bent on trying to push through a health care package when Congress returns. And in a city that rarely can walk and chew gum at … [Read more...] about How the White House could be screwing up tax reform — TRUMP’s tax plan: expect few details next week — VANITY FAIR on Melania — TIM ALBERTA on PAT BUCHANAN — SPOTTED at JON ALLEN and AMIE PARNES’ book party

It suits their business model, and it gets them tons of free fall-preview promotion. Last year, a few network shows did indeed stick, including CBS’s “Bull,” ABC’s “Speechless,” and NBC’s “This Is Us,” the hit that is trying to break your heart. At the same time, cable, with … [Read more...] about Sexy, savvy, and full of laughs: eight new TV shows not to miss
Minnesota prisons pile on solitary confinement, often for minor offenses, causing lasting mental problems for inmates. Other states are scaling back. Story by Andy Mannix, Star Tribune • Illustration by Clay Rodery Sunday, December 4, 2016 Anthony Nasseff lay awake for hours silent, staring at the metal slot on his prison cell door, waiting for his breakfast tray to appear. That signaled morning: the beginning of another day of tedium, despair and loneliness. Nasseff was a 20-year-old inmate at Minnesota’s Oak Park Heights prison when a disorderly conduct citation earned him an initially short stay in solitary confinement. It lasted three years. For at least 23 hours a day, walled off from all outside sounds, Nasseff was confined inside an 8 ½-by-11-foot cell. A single bed, concrete bench, shower and toilet left just enough space for him to do push-ups. A camera mounted on the ceiling watched him at all times. Unseen hands flushed the toilet and … [Read more...] about Excessive solitary confinement scars Minnesota prison inmates
