While we have the Las Vegas mass murder, 3 serious hurricanes, disputes in the executive branch, >3000 facebook/twitter posts from Russian sources (most against Hillary) targeted at close states (Wisc and Mich so far), and more previously undisclosed Russian contacts with Trump campaign (collusion TBD) dominating the news, we have Congress doing the following by commission and ommision.

Please read the following links and I’d like to hear from BLfers. Give the details in the articles, do some analysis, or just give your impressions/feelings. I'll reply at a later time (probably this weekend).
