Wednesday's Mini-Report, 9.7.16

09/07/16 05:30PM

Today's edition of quick hits:
 
* Videgaray helped arrange Trump's visit to Mexico: "Luis Videgaray, Mexico's finance minister and one of President Enrique Pena Nieto's closest allies, has resigned and been replaced by Jose Antonio Meade, the president announced on Wednesday."
 
* This can't continue: "A U.S. Navy reconnaissance plane had a close encounter with a Russian fighter that came within 10 feet of the aircraft as it flew in international airspace over the Black Sea. It is the latest encounter between the two militaries that American officials have labeled 'unsafe and unprofessional.'"
 
* Thank the ACA: "The number of uninsured people in the U.S. remained at a historic low in early 2016, according to a federal survey that found 8.6% of respondents without health coverage at the time of the interview. That translates to about 27.3 million people who lacked medical insurance when they were asked about it between January and March as part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Health Interview Survey."
 
* Louisiana: "Climate change has increased the likelihood of torrential downpours along the Gulf Coast like those that led to deadly floods in southern Louisiana last month, scientists said Wednesday."
 
* Syria: "The Obama administration has told Russia that it is at the end of its patience in trying to arrange a cease-fire in Syria, along with proposed joint U.S.-Russia counterterrorism operations, and that it expects a decision from Moscow in the next several days."
 
* It's September 2016 and in Republican politics, comments like these are still news: "Donald Trump's running mate, Mike Pence, on Wednesday said he accepts that President Obama was born in the U.S., something the GOP presidential nominee himself has shied away from discussing."
 
* Will senators be prepared to act or talk? "The Senate Homeland Security subcommittee on investigations on Wednesday announced that it is opening an inquiry into recent surges in the price of EpiPens."
