President Trump Says Puerto Rico ’s Debt Should Be ‘Wiped Out’
President Donald Trump said Tuesday that “you can say goodbye” to Puerto Rico’s crushing public debt, as the territory faces a difficult recovery from the devastation of Hurricane Maria. “We have to look at their whole debt structure,” Trump told Geraldo Rivera in an interview on Fox News. Asked about the administration’s commitment to help rebuild the battered island, Trump said Puerto Rico owes “a lot of money to your friends on Wall Street, and we’re going to have to wipe that out.” “I don’t know if it’s Goldman Sachs, but whoever it is, you can wa...

Trump Travels to Puerto Rico Amid Criticism of Hurricane Maria Response
(WASHINGTON) — President Donald Trump is heading to San Juan on Tuesday to meet with some of the 3.4 million Puerto Ricans struggling to recover from Hurricane Maria, as criticism that the federal government’s response has been sluggish continues. The president is expected to spend more than five hours on the island, meeting with first responders, local officials and some of the residents struggling to recover from a hurricane that, in Trump’s words, left the island U.S. territory “flattened.” “There’s nothing left. It’s been wiped out,” Trump said last week. “Nob...

Donald Trump Ran Against Wasteful Spending. Now His Own Cabinet Is Under Fire
On the campaign trail, Donald Trump frequently argued that as a billionaire he didn’t really need the job of president and would be immune to a D.C. culture of corruption and waste. As he rolled-out his Cabinet picks, among the richest in history, he echoed that same logic. But in recent days, several members of Trump’s Cabinet have been tripped up by the same kinds of wasteful spending habits that Republicans have long decried.

Where Hurricane Maria Fits in the History of Puerto Rico
The deadly impact of Hurricane Maria on Puerto Rico, as this week’s issue of TIME explores, has led to extreme devastation and a potential humanitarian crisis, as well as a political battle over the federal government’s responsibility to the island residents who have not received the same level of assistance as their fellow citizens in Texas and Florida did the wake of other recent hurricanes. And, amid the destruction, many mainland Americans have also come to realize just how little they know about Puerto Rico and its past.

The Median Household Income in the U.S. Is Rising
(WASHINGTON) — In a stark reminder of the damage done by the Great Recession and of the modest recovery that followed, the median American household last year finally earned more than it did in 1999. Incomes for a typical U.S. household, adjusted for inflation, rose 3.2 percent from 2015 to 2016 to $59,039, the Census Bureau said. The median is the point at which half the households fall below and half are above. Last year’s figure is slightly above the previous peak of $58,665, reached in 1999. It is also the first time since the recession ended in 2009 that the typical household earned more than it did in 200...

Still, the rate declined mainly for a less-than-encouraging reason: People stopped looking for work in May and so were no longer counted as unemployed. More: See the full report.

The American Health Care Act (AHCA), passed by the House of Representatives by a margin of one vote (217-213) on May 4th, overhauls the way in which the federal government and states cover the costs of state Medicaid programs. Most notably, it converts Medicaid from an open-ended entitlement into a ‘per-capita cap’ program.
