Welcome to the PredictWise Daily 20180708:

1) Still NO Congressional hearings on (1) How Trump admin decided to start ripping children from parents and put them in cages (2) Why they were not prepared for reunification (3) What they are doing about it. No surprising, but still shocking how much Congress has abandoned its responsibility to check the president. They started throwing kids into cages and no one thought to ask: what the fuck is going on?

2) It is impressive how Republicans, media, and Democrats hold Democrats to such high standard of civility, bipartisanship, process, and ethical standards. While, at the same time: Democrats, media, and Republicans just assume Republicans do not give a shit. See PredictWise article.

Democratic Healthcare Plan (let anyone buy Medicare, at  reasonable rate) is a sharp contrast with the Republican Healthcare Plan (make healthcare unaffordable for people with preexisting conditions and sabotage the market for everyone else). On Saturday, the Trump administration decided to eliminate mandated payments to insurance companies to further destabilize markets. Crazy thing about this: it may actually end up costing government more money and it adds volatility. It is your classic lose-lose.

Market Watch 20180708: Democrats 59 percent to take the House and Republicans 73 percent to hold the Senate outright and 17 percent to hold the Senate with 50/50 tie.
