    Here’s a sword, General Kelly. Use it on the White House lies.

    In the 33rd attempt, the House passed a repeal of the ACA, aka "Obamacare". The move is just a gesture though because it will never see the floor in the Senate where it heads next.

    White House releases 30 million barrels of oil from reserves

    In an effort to bring down prices, the White House issued an order to sell 30 million barrels of oil from the US reserves. So far, prices have certainly taken a hit with crude at ~$92 and Brent at ~$108. Strategic move or political? I'll put my money on the latter.

    Cap and trade passes in the House
