America rose to defend healthcare. But Trump's attack on the poor is not over

America rose to defend healthcare. But Trump's attack on the poor is not over
- Watching the events unfold I wondered: what if there had been a similar sudden downfall of the austerity programme in the UK in those early days when the dire warnings of the harm it would unleash were being shouted from the rooftops? How many people would not now be turning to food banks or battling to access social care if austerity had been stopped in its tracks?
The political rollercoaster in the US as the new health bill failed to garner the necessary votes to be passed in the house (partly because rightwing hardliners wanted an even harsher version) was stunning. The debacle came against a backdrop of months of anxiety and fear at what would unfold if it were passed and, the closer the vote deadline got, the more it hit home how much ordinary citizens would suffer. Across the country, individuals and groups rose to oppose it, highlighting the potentially devastating consequences for access to reproductive health services and the disproportionate impact on low-income women and children. Disabled campaigners worked tirelessly to draw attention to the particular injustices they would face if the law passed. Last Wednesday, more than 50 disability rights activists were arrested in Washington DC for protesting against it.

Black is beautiful, as long as you're a Trump supporter

Black is beautiful, as long as you're a Trump supporter
- A recent story in right-leaning Newsmax listing the 50 most influential African-American Republicans seems to put great importance on the relationship and level of support for President Donald Trump.
That may be why Utah Republican Party Chairman James Evans is on the list and Rep. Mia Love is not.
In fact, Love's absence from the list is mystifying, given that she is the first black Republican woman ever elected to Congress and spoke at the 2012 Republican National Convention.
But Love did not support Trump when he was running for president.
While Utah's convention delegation went for Ted Cruz over Trump and even participated in a maneuver to wrest the GOP nomination away from him, Evans made it clear that if Cruz dropped out, Trump was their man.
Newsmax founder Christopher Ruddy is a close friend and staunch defender of Trump.
Other African-American notables left off the list were former Secretaries of State Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell — both associated with the Bush family.
No. 1 on the list is Ben Carson, who is Trump's secretary of housing and urban development. No. 2 is Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
