1/27/2017 activism/politics roundup

Activism / resources
* Don’t get caught panicking about the wrong legislation (Emily Ellsworth)

* Tracking Trump’s Agenda, Step by Step (NYT)

* Confirmation spreedsheet #1 - tracks nominees, committee membership

* Confirmation spreadsheet #2 - tracks how senators have voted for each nominee, in committee and in full senate

Good news
* Chemerinsky, other scholars file suit claiming emoluments clause violations by Trump (ABA Journal)

* The First Step to Electing More Democrats? Getting Them to Run (Mother Jones). An article on that org I previously linked, Run for Something.

* Reversing course, Trump administration will continue Obamacare outreach (Politico)

* Republican split on Obamacare strategy evident during private meeting (Politico). I try to mostly avoid rumors and "so and so spoke on condition of anonymity," but this is apparently a verified leaked tape of private Republican discussion, and hearing them stressing out about how to repeal Obamacare without screwing over the country and themselves gives me life.
