Welcome to the PredictWise Daily 20180712:

1) House Republicans Hate Democracy (and America): trashing a FBI agent for having personal politics, while ignoring the fact the FBI did not leak information on Trump and trashed Clinton, handing Trump the election, is bad. Trying to force the FBI to compromise ongoing investigation into ongoing cyber-attack is worse.

2) House Republicans Hate Democracy: Arresting people on frivolous charges, as they are actively accusing the President of doing bad things, is a bad look for democracy.

3) 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 20180712: Democrats 61 percent to take the House and Republicans 74 percent to hold the Senate outright and 16 percent to hold the Senate with 50/50 tie.
