2. 2018 budget gets more behind schedule every day. Republicans in Congress know they have no chance to finish the dozen spending bills to fund the federal government by October 1, the start of the new fiscal year. The only question is how they deal with it. As of now, no funding bills for next year have been approved. Usually, that work begins in earnest in the month of June, but a delayed Trump budget slowed that process down. There are some in the GOP who are already making the case that the GOP should scrap the regular dozen appropriations bills, and just roll every bill into a big Omnibus spending measure and pass it BEFORE lawmakers go home for their August break. I'm not sure that's going to happen, but it's pretty interesting that it is even being discussed by the GOP.
3. Don't hold your breath on tax bill or infrastructure. While President Trump and Congressional leaders keep talking up their work on tax cuts, tax reform, and new money for roads and bridges - that doesn't mean anything is going to get voted on anytime soon. As of now, the Trump White House doesn't plan to unveil a tax bill until after Labor Day, and the same goes for an infrastructure bill. One reason is that none of that can get done until the Rubik's cube of health care gets solved by Republicans in the Congress. So, those two big bullet points of the Trump agenda probably won't be debated or voted on this summer, no matter how much the President or anyone else talks about it.
