A report by the CBO, an independent government agency says the Senate Republican health-care bill would result in 22 million people losing their insurance over the next decade. That’s little improvement over the unpopular House version, though the bill’s deep spending cuts would reduce the deficit by $321 billion in the same period.

The former FBI director may not need an attorney. But he could really use a public relations firm to help him rehabilitate his image. 

That’s because, if you paid attention to Comey’s testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee, you know that President Trump isn’t the only person with a credibility problem.
