I enjoy finding new blogs to read. Reading Judy's blog I learned about a blog called
The House Freedom Caucus is a group you need to be aware of, that also bears watching. This group is the rightest of the right, Tea Party right. They contributed greatly to bringing down Speaker John Boehner. Speaker Paul Ryan is the result of that tempest in a teapot.

When you listen to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell speak, remember he is married to one of President Trump's cabinet appointees. Elaine Chao is the new Secretary of Transportation. As far as I know she's a good appointment, BUT, what impact will this situation have on Leader McConnell being fair and impartial about the Trump administration?
Take a look at this group. They're organizing Town Halls to get the message out to Congress they oppose repealing the Affordable Care Act. If your congress person has opted out of a Town Hall meeting while Congress is on vacation, you are encouraged to organize one yourself in your community and invite your Congress Person to attend. Some groups are doing that and using a life size cardboard figure of their missing Congress person. They're making pictures and will be posting on social media.
Today a Trump rally is planned for Florida. He's feeling the need to bring his supporters back together to feel the love he felt from them during the campaign.
The event is apparently to be paid out of his campaign funds. First President I've known to continue campaigning once the campaign is over.
These events may be even more volatile now than they were before the election.
