FROM Nancy Snow
Losing Their Cool: Joe, Serena and Kanye In the hallowed venue of a joint session of Congress, Republican Congressman Joe Wilson yelled, "You lie" at President Obama. At the highly competitive US Open, tennis star Serena Williams threatened an official who said she stepped over a line. And, last night, hip-hopper Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift 's acceptance speech to say Beyonce should have won the MTV Award for best video. Nancy Snow is Professor of Public Diplomacy at Syracuse University's Newhouse School of Public Communications.
Trump's opening offer: Making some of America 'great again?' A massive increase for the Pentagon at the expense of domestic programs. We hear about winners and losers in the President's first proposed budget.
'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.

We look at the possible consequences for delivering services and providing security — and at top aide Steve Bannon's plans for "deconstructing the administrative state."
