The Daily Countable: Gov't Transparency & Disaster Relief

by Countable | 10.20.17

Good Friday, Countable friends, and happy weekend. We're working to keep your government transparent and accountable.

On the Radar

I bet you miss The House of Representatives, don't you? After Congressmembers' week-long recess, we democracy nerds at Countable miss them too. But never fear: the House is back in action on Monday!

On The House's agenda: bills to promote transparency in judicial settlements and regulatory rulings, and potentially the budget resolution that was amended and passed this week by the Senate.

Speaking of the Upper Chamber, the Senate also comes back to DC on Monday, and is set to vote on the final $36.5 billion disaster relief package, sending it to President Trump's desk. Now's a great time to review those bills and let your Reps know what you think.

Your Gov at a Glance 👀

The White House: President Trump in DC

  • The president will receive his daily intelligence briefing in the morning.
  • Later in the morning the president will meet with the Secretary General of the United Nations.

The House of Representatives: OUT

  • The House will return Monday, October 23.

The Senate: OUT

  • The Senate will return Monday, October 23.

We're always listening, fellow citizens. So please get in touch. For immediate responses, send questions and comments on Twitter to me, @RadioBabe or to all of us, @Countable.

Talk to you Monday, — Andrea Seabrook, Managing Editor

    Trump lies Republicans back up Trump’s lies. Then Trump lies about lying. Finally Trump orders his general to lie When faced with indisputable facts that they lied, both stick by their lies!!! Trump is.delusional. Trump believes his delusions. Republicans are insane by osmosis! No morals. Shameful.

    Trump has passed Obama on executive order by two to 1 and this is not even the end of his first year? Obama had 26 for his eight years.

    Jason Chaffez was supposedly my representative in congress even though he voted against my interests. I called, wrote and otherwise tried to make my concerns heard. No replies. My question is to whom can I address my concerns now when issues are so consequential? I have been without even nominal representation since June. How transparent is a system which frankly disenfranchises me as a progressive and then leaves me with no venue to express my concerns?

    No one cares about reducing the deficit in Washington. It is all just talk and kabuki theater in the end.
