More and more promises.
Our man Mnuchin yesterday gave the markets a huge lift by claiming “we’re pretty close to bringing forward major tax reform” and the markets went crazy but he also said that by “soon” he meant before the end of the year. That then is a really stupid reason for the markets to rally since they already rallied on it being done in Trump’s first 100 days (this is day 90) but, apparently, you can cry “wolf” as often as you want and this market will rally to your cause.
Also promised yesterday was swift approval of the TrumpDon’tCare Health Plan (Part II) and this one is much more horrific than the last one as they now have a TABLE OF DOOM!!! which has surcharges for pre-existing conditions like PREGNANCY, which will set you back an additional $17,320 if you or one of your family members is prone to such things. I wish I were joking but no, that’s actually the cost for pregnancy with “no or minor complications” – complications are extra:
