GOP still not have 50 Senate votes for budget. Thad Cochrane deathbed. SALT? Corp rate phase-in terrible idea. Don't let process stop good policy. Suspend rules to win. Play hardball like Dems. Growth, not deductions is key point.

Gen Kelly: longer Fed process. More interviews. Yellen? Warsh-Taylor ticket? Growth v inflation. End Phillips curve. Chair should favor Trump growth policies.

Trump won't certify Iran. Put to Congress. Will Afghan policies work? 16 years. Taliban. What's different now?

Trump stops cost-sharing subsidies to insurance co's. Dereg mandates for more choice.

Stocks still rising. No recession. No inflation. New profit numbers. If budget not passed, stocks vulnerable. New Fed chair. Insurance & hospitals at risk. Jamie Dimon attacks bitcoin.

Nafta? If other countries subsidize, should we? If they're not free market, why should we? We didn't go socialist, or communist. But we won econ war. Imports v. exports.
