WASHINGTONHouse Democrats will vote against a short-term spending bill to keep the government open if Republicans try to move on a bill to repeal Obamacare this week. House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said that if Republicans try a second time to rush their latest bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act out the door, they will have to pass the one-week continuing resolution without Democratic votes. If Republicans announce their intention to bring their harmful TrumpCare bill to the House Floor tomorrow or Saturday , I will oppose a one-week continuing resolution and will advise House Democrats to oppose it as well, Hoyer said in a statement on Thursday. Republicans continue to struggle to find the votes to pass a bill that will kick 24 million Americans off their health coverage, allow discrimination against those with pre-existing conditions, and impose an age tax on older Americans.

"We as Democrats have over and over again spoken and tried to address the issues that confront Americans on a day to day basis, but our message has not been clear enough," Cummings said. "We've got to clarify our message, Mike. I mean it's not that complicated, but we've got to do it." Cummings then went on to compliment Republicans' messaging. "As I've said before, the Republicans do an excellent job of it," Cummings said. "They stay on message."

Enlarge (credit: Getty | Barcroft Media ) Law enforcement agencies across the country are raising alarms about the increasing trend of finding heroin laced with an extremely lethal elephant tranquilizer called carfentanil, The Washington Post reports . The drug is 10,000 times stronger than morphine and 100 times stronger than fentanyl, just two milligrams of which is lethal—that’s about one toss of a salt shaker. Carfentanil can be absorbed through the skin, and just a puff from re-sealing a plastic bag can be lethal, raising risks for first-responders. Just a whiff can kill a drug-sniffing dog. Though authorities are struggling to identify it in overdose cases—and sometimes not trying due to the health riskscarfentanil has been linked to dramatic increases in overdoses, which were already at alarming levels amid the nationwide opioid epidemic.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) blasted the Trump administration's job performance as its 100th day approaches, saying Thursday that it gets an "F-minus" on health care and failing grades in other areas. "100 days of broken promises to working people. 100 days of handouts to the wealthiest people in our country," she said. She said she'd been asked how she would grade President Trump thus far, saying she would take it subject by subject. "Broken promises on jobs and infrastructure: F," she said. "We haven't seen a jobs bill. We haven't seen an infrastructure bill ... Broken promises on America's health care. F-minus." The assembled press chuckled. Pelosi said she would go into it later in her press conference why Trump's health record deserved such a grade. She would go on to rip the new GOP plan as "cruel."

The official Department of Labor estimate for Trump's first two months in office is 317,000. Ruhle appeared to be claiming that the rate of job growth was largely consistent with the job growth under the outgoing president. "So when you look at these 100 days, does it not give you frustration, that what he touts, that much of it, much of the positives, Obama delivered?" Ruhle asked Earnest.

"This evidence is powerful in showing that Gen. Flynn broke significant criminal laws," he said. "It will not be investigated and prosecuted unless there is a special prosecutor for all the reasons that Rep. Cummings outlined so powerfully about the White House seeking, in effect, to cover up for Gen. Flynn. We can't count on the attorney general or his deputy to report to the president of the United States and the White House to do that job." "There needs to be a special prosecutor, and likewise, the conflicts of interest on the part of President Trump and others in the White House require a special prosecutor to investigate and pursue," he added.
