Is the US Auto Industry Finally Beginning to Roll? In 2006, Americans told Associated Press and AOL pollsters that Japanese automobiles were better than US-made cars by a margin of 46 to 29%. Last month, they preferred domestic makers 38% to 33%. Chrysler's still losing money, but claims it'll break even in 2010; General Motors needed $50 billion in federal money last year, but has paid off $6.7 billion ahead of schedule; and Ford never took any federal money at all. Is Detroit making a comeback? Greg Gardner covers the auto industry for the Detroit Free Press .
'Do-or-die' time on healthcare bill President Trump has demanded a House vote today on replacing Obamacare…whatever the details might be. Despite his campaign promise that nobody would lose health insurance, that's possible for 24 million people if he were finally to sign this bill into law.
CBO: Under GOP plan, millions will lose coverage Republicans are divided and Democrats are saying, "we told you so," when it comes to official estimates of what it will cost to repeal and replace Obamacare. The Trump White House says the Congressional Budget Office is just wrong.
Trump's travel ban and the long-term agenda The Trump Administration's revised travel ban may be good news for some visa holders and others, but it's still being challenged as unconstitutional. Some reporters call it the beginning of a long-term effort to change the demographic make-up of the United States.
The airline electronics ban and what it means President Trump's Department of Homeland Security has banned all electronic devices larger than cell phones on some foreign airlines flying direct to the US. It's causing confusion as well as inconvenience. Is the motive really just increased security?
