A follow-up on reactions to Trump’s executive order

What did West Virginia's congressional delegation and the Wheeling Intelligencer have to say about Trump's order?

What do West Virginia’s representatives think?

The Charleston Gazette-Mail took what I consider the logical next step following President Trump’s executive order to build his wall – they checked with West Virginia’s congressional representation to complement their national coverage. Here is what reporter Jake Zuckerman found.

Obamacare is declared unconstitutional but more importantly, our local community college has regained ownership of a city lot

Who said the Wheeling Intelligencer's front page doesn't cover the news that’s important to West Virginians?

Yesterday’s news event with the largest impact upon West Virginians was undoubtedly the ruling by a federal judge in Texas that the entirety of Obamacare was unconstitutional. (Hundreds of thousands of West Virginians will lose their health insurance if the ruling is upheld.) Here are the related front-page headlines from major U.S. . . .

Myer quotes Manchin that 800,000 West Virginians would . . .

Obamacare to Trumpcare

From today's Intelligencer: a collection of half-truths, no truths, and disingenuousness (a typical Saturday opinion page)

The lead editorial implores the Republicans to keep fighting to replace Obamacare

Of course we learn (without evidence) in the editorial how Obamacare is universally hated, "choking" state budgets, and has all sorts of horror stories that everyone (including Democrats) have heard. That's what the editorial tells us but . . .

Ignoring her previous promises to her constituents, Capito votes for "skinny repeal" of Obamacare

Legislation is rejected, however

Early this morning, the United States Senate rejected an attempt by Republicans to repeal major portions of Obamacare. The vote was 51-49 with Republicans McCain, Murkowski and Collins joining all Democrats to defeat the bill.

West Virginia Senator Shelley Moore Capito voted in favor of the bill despite her previous statements to the . . .

No respect for journalism, no respect for its readership

Yes, it's another dishonest Intelligencer editorial on health care

From this morning's editorial, "Health Care Law Action Essential":

No one knows how many billions — more likely, tens of billions — of dollars have been funneled to insurance companies by the government, under former President Barack Obama. Much of the subsidy money was paid illegally.

"No one . . .
