FROM Matt Winkler
Where's All the Bailout Money Going? When Congress approved the $700 billion bank bailout, it demanded transparency. Now the Federal Reserve is lending $2 trillion more . Who's getting the money? "Americans have no idea where their money is going or what securities the banks are pledging in return." That's according to the Bloomberg News Service , where Matt Winkler is editor in chief.
What happens when America retreats from the world? Is President Trump taking his "America First" agenda to extremes, withdrawing the country from the international stage on trade and climate change, distancing America from its traditional allies across the Atlantic and even threatening to physically isolate the country through the building of a wall along its southern border?

Will the Senate write a healthcare bill in secret? While Democrats and Republicans argue White House relations with Russia, another question is being decided behind closed doors: who gets help buying health insurance and who doesn't? We hear how the pros and cons are being shrouded in secrecy.
Is the threat from Russia missing from the Russia meddling probe? There's much being made about the Trump administration's possible ties with Russia. But the bottom line is Russia's effort to influence American democracy. Do the President and his aides care enough to take action before voters go back to the polls?
