Some Good News on the Trump Front

I don't know about Trump, really. I don't like his claim that he's working on a plan to allow "DREAMers" to remain in the country with a plan that has "a lot of heart" and will make them "very happy."

Mark Krikorian comments that "Any DACA deal would have to include E-Verify & offsetting cuts in legal immigration (lottery & chain migration)," but that seems to be his urging, not Trump's thinking. But maybe Trump is listening to the right people.

Maybe.

Apart from that, there are some reasons for optimism, if you're wired that way.

HHS Secretary nominee Tom Price apparently has two enemies: big government, and insurance companies.

Education Secretary nominee Betsy DeVos repeatedly rejected Bernie Sanders' premises that government ought to provide "free" higher education, that "free" higher education actually was free, or that the Education Department had anything to do with Sanders' proposal of free child care.

From his opening question about America becoming an oligarchic state to his off-topic pontificating, Sanders's interrogation made for interesting TV. But it looks like a win for limited government that DeVos realizes what the responsibilities of the education secretary actually are.

Trump is cutting his Inauguration Parade short to go to the White House and start signing executive orders, mostly undoing Obama's executive orders.

This story claims he plans to sign "4 or 5" high priority orders.

I hear the number is a bit higher than that.
