One would reduce the 1.3-million-acre (0.5 million hectare) Bears Ears National Monument, created in 2016 by then-President Barack Obama in southeastern Utah, by more than 80 percent split into two areas. 

The other would cut the state’s 1.9-million-acre (768,900-hectare) Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, designated by President Bill Clinton in 1996, nearly in half. The landscape of canyons, ridges and rock formations would be split into three zones.

According to court documents, Flynn spoke to the Russian ambassador on the day sanctions were announced against Russia in response to hacking the 2016 Presidential election.  "Mr. Flynn asked Mr. Kislyak that Moscow refrain from escalating the situation, and Mr. Kislyak said Russia 'had chosen to moderate its response'" according to documents.  According to a lawyer briefed on the matter, Flynn contacted Kislyak under direction from Jared Kushner. Flynn resigned on February 13, 2017 after just 22 days in his position amid this same controversy surrounding his improper interactions with Russian officials. Trump later sent a tweet suggesting he was aware that Flynn lied to the F.B.I.: “I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI.  He has pled guilty to those lies.

The first version of the travel ban halted refugee admissions and restricted immigrants with any visa status from entering the United States from the following countries: Iraq, Iran, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, Libya, and Yemen. The second version only restricted new visas for a 90 day period from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen, subject to categorical exceptions and case-by-case waivers” (Iraq was removed from the original list). "The current ban, issued last fall, barred various travelers from eight countries, six of them with Muslim majorities. They are Syria, Libya, Iran, Yemen, Chad, Somalia, North Korea and Venezuela. Restrictions on North Korea and Venezuela were not part of the challenge. Chad was later removed from the list." On Monday December 4, 2017 the Supreme Court voted 7-2 to allow President Trump's third version of a travel ban to proceed without limitation while lower courts deliberate on appeals.

"By 2019, Americans earning less than $30,000 a year would be worse off under the Senate bill, CBO found. By 2021, Americans earning $40,000 or less would be net losers, and by 2027, most people earning less than $75,000 a year would be worse off. On the flip side, millionaires and those earning $100,000 to $500,000 would be big beneficiaries, according to the CBO’s calculations." "The Senate Republican tax bill eliminates the requirement that almost all Americans purchase health insurance or else pay a penalty. The CBO has calculated that health insurance premiums would rise if this bill becomes law, leading 4 million Americans to lose health insurance by 2019 and 13 million to lose insurance by 2027." One of the reasons why taxes will increase for low income individuals would be from loss of tax credits and other subsidies from health insurance. The tax plan will also lead to "an increase in the deficit of $1,414 billion over the next 10 years." Read the full Congressional Budget Office Joint Committee on Taxation Report here.
