    Millions of Americans are cut out of one critical health need for the worst reason of all — money. Hearing loss affects about 30 million Americans to different degrees. It is more common as people get older. And yet there’s a gap in health care options: Medicare does not cover the problem.

    WASHINGTON — Seven white men and a white woman, Republican members of Congress all, boarded vehicles on Capitol Hill on Tuesday morning for a voyage deep into Anacostia, a largely black and poor section of Washington.

    Who knew the “Archie Bunker for President” bumper stickers of the 1970s would ever prove so prescient? Donald Trump might be as close to that “All in the Family” character as any Hollywood casting director could ever imagine. His latest attacks on Indiana-born U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel of California — that he is incapable of deciding a case involving Trump University fairly because “he’s a Mexican” — could have been lifted from the sitcom’s script.

    Friday’s employment report was a major disappointment: only 38,000 jobs added, a big step down from the more than 200,000 a month average since January 2013. Special factors, notably the Verizon strike, explain part of the bad news, and in any case job growth is a noisy series, so you shouldn’t make too much of one month’s data. Still, all the evidence points to slowing growth. It’s not a recession, at least not yet, but it is definitely a pause in the economy’s progress.

    Six years after Obamacare became law, some 30 million Americans still lack health insurance. Louisiana found a trick to get a great number of them signed up for Medicaid.

    WASHINGTON — The Caligulan malice with which Donald Trump administered Paul Ryan’s degradation is an object lesson in the price of abject capitulation to power. This episode should be studied as a clinical case of a particular Washington myopia — the ability of career politicians to convince themselves that they and their agendas are of supreme importance.

    France (and anyone who travels there) is subject to a typically French duel between its Socialist government, which depends on the unions to remain in office, and the unions themselves. They are expressing themselves, as is their wont, through strikes, notably transport strikes.

    WASHINGTON — On Thursday, Donald Trump escalated his racist attacks on Gonzalo Curiel, the federal judge hearing one of the fraud cases against Trump University.

    It seems halfway plausible that presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump would feel like he is fast friends with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
