WOMEN’S MARCH takes over downtown DC -- THE JUICE: What we’ve learned, what we’ve seen about insiders in Trump’s orbit -- ABOUT LAST NIGHT: Understanding the exec. orders, inside the parties

Good Saturday morning. More than 200,000 people are descending on Washington this morning to participate in the Women’s March. The effort, which includes six “sister marches” across the country, is featuring more than 50 speakers, including Gloria Steinem, in downtown D.C. before walking 2 miles along the National Mall to The Ellipse. Organizers were still looking for additional marshals Friday afternoon to help shepherd the larger than expected number of attendees.-- @ABC7NEWS: “Multiple Metro station parking lots filled to capacity as #WomensMarch begins” http://bit.ly/2jZCsdYDONALD TRUMP and MIKE PENCE are attending the National Prayer Service at the Washington National Cathedral this morning. Trump’s team has advised that today is a work day, so the press is on standby for potential executive orders and other meetings at the White House.-- @seanspicer: ".@POTUS to visit @CIA this afternoon. Event is over capacity at 300+. Excited to thank the men and women of the intelligence community."**SUBSCRIBE to Playbook: http://politi.co/1M75UbXUNDERSTANDING WHAT TRUMP SIGNED LAST NIGHT -- “Trump signs sweeping order that could gut Obamacare,” by Jen Haberkorn and Nolan McCaskill: “The order changes nothing immediately and doesn't spell out exactly what Trump would like his government to do. But it sends a strong symbolic message to his supporters, while offering some clues to his direction. Federal agencies could use the order to stop enforcing the individual mandate, which has been the most contentious piece of the law -- a move that could throw the individual insurance market into an almost immediate spiral.” http://politi.co/2jAIfqu-- “White House orders ‘immediate regulatory freeze,’” by Andrew Restuccia and Nick Juliano: “President Donald Trump took his first steps Friday night toward what he has promised will be a wide-ranging assault on Barack Obama’s regulatory agenda, a crusade eventually aimed at erasing Obamacare and landmark climate change regulations. Trump’s initial action -- ordering a freeze on all pending regulations until his administration can review them -- would have a more modest impact: It could throttle almost-completed rules aimed at expanding overtime pay, tightening pipeline safety, protecting imperiled bumblebees and imposing stricter safeguards on rail shipments of flammable crude oil, among other topics.” http://politi.co/2jLmRBcFOR HISTORY -- PRESIDENT DONALD J.

TIMES: “Trump takes first steps in a new era of conservatism -- Latinos have no place in this cabinet” http://bit.ly/2jj6N6zTHE BOSTON GLOBE has a great front page with an eye-grabbing AP image. http://bit.ly/2jiYvvo-- THE AP BULLETIN at 11:59 a.m.: “WASHINGTON (AP) - Donald Trump takes oath of office as the 45th president of the United States.” … at noon: “WASHINGTON (AP) - Donald Trump takes the oath of office as the 45th president of the United States, a combative billionaire businessman and TV celebrity elected to lead a profoundly divided country. The unorthodox politician and the Republican-controlled Congress are charting a newly conservative course for the nation, vowing to reverse the work of the departing Barack Obama.”FROM 1600 PENNSYLVANIA -- @realDonaldTrump at 6:53 a.m.: “A fantastic day and evening in Washington D.C.Thank you to @FoxNews and so many other news outlets for the GREAT reviews of the speech!”THE JUICE -- WHAT WE’VE LEARNED --THE MOST INTERESTING THING about yesterday was not the speech, parade or protests. It was the inaugural lunch in the Capitol, where Donald Trump mingled and back-slapped with the long-time D.C. politicians he dumped all over on the National Mall. THE SCENE: Reporters were allowed to observe the lunch from a balcony above Statuary Hall. We were permitted to snap photos for most of the lunch (Jake put a ton on Twitter http://bit.ly/2jAvyfj).-- THE INVITED GUESTS were not only lawmakers, but, as the WaPo’s top congressional reporter Paul Kane pointed out on Twitter, the lunch also included top donors like Sheldon Adelson for the first time in his memory. They all sipped wine and chatted in a friendly manner that belied the blow-up-Washington rhetoric that Trump used in his address.-- MITCH MCCONNELL swapped seats with SEN. ROY BLUNT (R-MO.), the chairman of the inaugural committee, so he could sit next to Donald Trump. McConnell and Trump spoke for a long period of time -- and if you know McConnell, he doesn’t talk to anyone for that long unless he has something to say. The senator was doing a lot of the talking, and he’s not much for small talk. This was a one-on-one chat, with even Mike Pence laying back. McConnell and Trump were both talking with their hands, with McConnell at one point making a “T” with his two hands, appearing to illustrate a collision. McConnell is the ultimate Capitol operator. He’ll be able to tell Trump what is -- and, more importantly, what isn’t -- possible. Plus, he doesn’t have the scar tissue with Trump that Ryan has.-- CHUCK SCHUMER spoke with TRUMP for a while, too. The format was a lot less formal. Melania Trump was seated next to the president, and Abby Blunt -- Sen. Blunt’s wife, and a top lobbyist for Kraft Heinz Company -- was in the middle of the chat as well. It seemed like a friendly conversation from afar.-- ROY BLUNT, who chaired the inauguration, worked the room judiciously on his own, but also made sure to introduce Trump to people that he should know. One of the most notable introductions he made was Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), the No. 2 Senate Democrat.-- It’s becoming clear how TRUMP sees PAUL RYAN. He quipped at a ceremony this week that Ryan was probably “out writing legislation. He’s got so much legislation to write. He never had it so good. He’s actually got somebody that’s gonna sign it.” That’s actually not a bad read. Ryan is the legislator of this gang. He was seated at the end of the table, next to Karen Pence, the second lady.-- IT WAS ALSO FASCINATING to see which lawmakers took it upon themselves to go up to Trump. Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, got words in with Trump. Rep. John Larson, a gregarious Democrat from Connecticut, also approached the front table to chat with him. DAVID SHULKIN, the VA nominee, seemed friendly not only with Trump, but also with Schumer.-- KEVIN MCCARTHY will be a key figure for Trump. Trump said this week that McCarthy frequently called the New Yorker when he was feuding with Paul Ryan. Think of McCarthy as the insider -- the pal in the House. According to people close to both men, Trump enjoys McCarthy and his phone calls. At the lunch, he was seated next to Ivanka and a few seats away from Jared.JAMES MATTIS was sworn in as Defense secretary last night, and GEN. JOHN KELLY was sworn in to lead D.H.S. BY THE NUMBERS -- Facebook is reporting that 60 million people in the U.S. Friday engaged in 208 million likes, posts, comments and shares related to Trump’s inauguration.THE NEXT FOUR YEARS? -- “Rough first day for press in Trump’s White House,” by Sarah Wheaton: “The pomp and circumstance ended in pandemonium in the White House briefing room. President Donald Trump’s staff teased the press all afternoon on Friday about whether Trump would sign executive orders. ‘A possibility,’ said Press Secretary Sean Spicer. ‘Potentially,’ said strategic communications director Hope Hicks. ‘Don’t start drinking yet,’ said deputy Communications director Raj Shah. The back-and-forth ended with Trump signing an executive order allowing federal agencies to disregard provisions of the Affordable Care Act.“In the hours leading up to Trump's signing, Spicer emerged repeatedly, without warning, to address the press in the briefing room, prompting reporters to run through the corridor and push each other out of the way. He announced, at first, that Trump would sign two executive orders. Then he announced there’d be three actions – and in the end, only one of them was actually an executive order. Though he promised a full readout of the executive order, a vague directive to agencies to ‘ease the burden’ of Obamacare before it’s repealed, Spicer ultimately delivered a 30-second statement that didn’t mention the order, and tweeted to confirm it had been signed.” http://politi.co/2jiK6PWTHE LOYAL OPPOSITION -- “An Anti-Corporate Investigative Reporter Will Lead Left’s ‘Answer’ To Breitbart: Hillary Clinton fundraiser David Brock has hired David Sirota, a critic of big money ties to both parties.” by BuzzFeed’s Paul McLeod: “True Blue Media, pitching itself as the left’s answer to Breitbart, has picked an investigative reporter critical of Republicans and Wall Street Democrats alike as its new CEO. David Sirota is leaving his role as senior investigations editor at the International Business Times to lead True Blue, which currently operates as ShareBlue and was part of a network of liberal outlets supporting Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign.” http://bzfd.it/2jJY68k [email protected]: “As Trump is sworn in, FOX News announces that it has signed Nigel Farage as a network contributor.”FIRST IN PLAYBOOK: LIZ JOHNSON, communications director for former Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) and a member of the Trump transition team, is going to the Department of Homeland Security’s office of public affairs as a communications adviser.-- SPOTTED: SARA BONJEAN helping Vice President Mike Pence and his family navigate the waters of inauguration festivities.-- BUZZ: Shealah Craighead will be the White House photographer.

V different styles.” http://bit.ly/2iN8NHYMICHAEL GRUNWALD in Politico, “From Obama to Trump: No Ordinary Lurch: The ceremony might have looked smooth, but it’s hard to imagine a more abrupt change in the American presidency”: “Trump was Trump, even though he had just become President Trump. He is no ordinary politician, and his inaugural address—a pugilistic, nationalistic, campaign-style screed that made America sound like an unbearable dystopia—was a harsh reminder, if one were needed, that this was no ordinary transfer of power. ... It’s an abrupt shift not only from a Democratic technocrat who pursued progressive policies to a Republican billionaire who has vowed to undo them, but from no-drama to melodrama, from cerebral and methodical to impulsive and chaotic, from the pedantic intellectual who loathes cable news and quoted V.S. Naipaul in an exit interview with the New York Times book critic to the brand-savvy entrepreneur and reality-TV host who incessantly watches cable news and does not seem to read books at all.” http://politi.co/2kbOvnEFACT CHECK -- NYT A21, “Trump’s Grim View of the Economy Ignores Most Americans’ Reality,” by Binyamin Appelbaum: “The dismal picture of the American economy President Donald J. Trump painted in his Inaugural Address on Friday is at odds with the economic reality of most Americans. Mr. Trump described a nation depleted, despairing and in decline. ... In fact, the United States is in the midst of one of the longest sustained economic expansions in the nation’s history. The stock market has climbed to record heights; middle-class incomes are increasing after years of stagnation; and corporations are recording enormous profits. Some measures of consumer confidence show that optimism about the economic outlook, and job and income prospects have climbed to the highest levels in more than a decade.” http://nyti.ms/2kbQYP4SNEAK PEAK -- KELLYANNE CONWAY on NBC’s “Sunday TODAY with Willie Geist”: When asked if President-elect Trump will answer every criticism, like SNL and Meryl Streep, Conway says, “He doesn’t answer every criticism, believe me” and he will “possibly engage pop culture but again, he rarely draws first blood.” “Why was it okay for President Obama -- everybody swooned and thought it was a wonderful idea that he would engage pop culture on his own terms, and if Donald Trump does it a little bit differently through his social media platforms everybody feigns shock and dismay?” http://on.today.com/2iN6gxxTHE CABINET -- “Weak vetting led to Cabinet confirmation surprises,” by Josh Dawsey and Eli Stokols: “Steve Mnuchin, Donald Trump’s pick to be treasury Secretary, failed to list $100 million in assets on his federal disclosure forms. Vincent Viola, nominated to be Army secretary, punched a man in the face at a horse race last summer. The ex-wife of Andrew Puzder, the labor secretary nominee, once appeared incognito on ‘Oprah’ to raise domestic abuse allegations, which Puzder has denied. Betsy DeVos, Trump’s choice for education secretary, struggled to demonstrate a basic comprehension of department policy and basic education terms during her hearing this week. Two nominees didn’t pay taxes on their household employees. This string of startling revelations over the past two weeks caught senior members of Trump’s staff by surprise, and they didn’t know some of the potential for problems before Senate confirmation hearings began.” http://politi.co/2kd34eGTHE NEW ADMINISTRATION -- “With Trump in Charge, Climate Change References Purged From Website,” by NYT’s Coral Davenport: “Within moments of the inauguration of President Trump, the official White House website on Friday deleted nearly all mentions of climate change. The one exception: Mr. Trump’s vow to eliminate the Obama administration’s climate change policies, which previously had a prominent and detailed web page on whitehouse.gov.” http://nyti.ms/2iWArNX-- “Republicans delay DeVos committee vote by a week,” by Michael Stratford: “Sen. Lamar Alexander, chair of the Senate education committee, has delayed by a week a planned committee vote on Betsy DeVos, President Donald Trump’s nominee for Education secretary. The vote, which was originally slated for this Tuesday, has been rescheduled until Jan. 31, Alexander announced Friday evening. The delay comes as Democrats have argued that they haven’t had enough time to examine DeVos’ complicated financial holdings or ask her questions.” http://politi.co/2jZh48CPLAYBOOK IN-BOX – From “President Trump” yesterday at 1:19 p.m. with the subject line “Before tomorrow”: “Friend, I am humbled to write to you for the first time as your president. This is an honor I will never take lightly – and I will NEVER forget the brave and strong Americans who entrusted me with this great responsibility. ... Ronna McDaniel – our Party’s terrific new chairman and a real winner – will soon be sending me a list of our many members who renewed their commitment for the 2017 year.

FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez, a Democrat, intends to resign from her post on Feb. 10, leaving the key tech enforcement agency deadlocked at two members at the start of President-elect Donald Trump’s administration.The departure, confirmed by Ramirez to POLITICO on Friday, leaves the FTC with a total of three vacancies — and grants Trump, after his inauguration, an opportunity to reshape broad swaths of an agency that had tech giants like Facebook and Google in its crosshairs during the Obama administration."I think the takeaway is that the FTC is an active enforcer, whose mission is to protect consumers, and we’ve certainly sought to do that," Ramirez said in an interview. The agency, she continued, "at the end of the day serves American companies, and American innovation, to ensure they give thought to protecting consumers, particularly in the areas of privacy and data security."After leaving, Ramirez said she would "begin to give thought" to her next chapter. Her departure paves the way for a major shift at the FTC. On one hand, Trump has spoken critically of the tech industry while taking shots at major mergers, like AT&T’s bid for Time Warner, which is currently undergoing Justice Department review. To some, that’s been a sign he could nudge both antitrust agencies in a populist direction. However, the candidates rumored to be under consideration for FTC posts hail from major law firms and boast backgrounds representing major tech companies, suggesting Trump may take a more traditional Republican route at the agency. Going forward, Ramirez said she didn't expect large disruptions to the FTC's mission. "My expectation is the FTC is going to continue the tremendous work it has been doing for many, many years," she said. "If you look back across administrations, whether it’s Democratic or Republican, you have seen a dedicated agency serving the American public."In the meantime, the FTC will remain at two: Democratic Commissioner Terrell McSweeny and Republican Commissioner Maureen Ohlhausen. By law, it is still allowed to operate, but FTC veterans expect the agency will hold off on politically contentious decisions and major investigations until Trump nominates additional commissioners.Ramirez, a Harvard Law School classmate of President Barack Obama, joined the FTC as a commissioner in 2010, and Obama designated her as chairwoman three years later. In her time at the helm, she’s focused much of agency’s technology work on emerging industries, like the so-called internet of things and the sharing economy, along with the consumer protection issues they raise. Ramirez sought to apply the FTC’s enforcement teeth to the tech industry, bringing cases against Apple and Amazon for the way they offer in-app purchases, in addition to fines against AT&T and T-Mobile for their billing practices. In total, the FTC estimates that Ramirez brought 391 consumer protection actions during her tenure.To critics, though, Ramirez failed to bring the FTC’s full weight against tech giants like Google. While Europe has sought to penalize the search giant for stifling competition, Ramirez and the FTC did not revive a U.S. probe that spared Google in 2013 from stiff penalties.

The Zero Deficit Line in 2012

Now that the U.S. Census has released its newest estimate of median household income in the United States, it's time to consider where the U.S. federal government spending per U.S. household stands with respect to the Zero Deficit Line, which is the amount of spending that the typical American household can actually afford. The chart below shows those two measures for each year since 1967, when the Census first began reporting its median household income figure: Looking at the chart, we see that for the third year in a row, the amount of U.S. federal government spending per household is hovering just below $30,000 per U.S. household. Our tool below will reveal how much spending can actually be supported by the typical American household given its annual income of $50,054 (or whatever median household income level you might choose to enter!) Median Household Income Data Input Data Values Median Household Income How Much Federal Spending Per Household Can the U.S. Really Afford? Estimated Results Values Federal Spending per U.S. Household Using our tool, we find that in reality, the typical American household can only afford to have the federal government spend no more than $21,059. On a side note, do you remember the old Warner Brothers' Road Runner cartoons? The ones where Wile E. Coyote would be chasing after the bird, then suddenly find himself suspended in mid-air beyond the edge of a cliff, until he looked down and finally crashed back to earth? The level of federal spending per household since 2008 and the lack of meaningful growth in the incomes of U.S. households under President Obama, combined with all the talk these days of the approaching "fiscal cliff" suggests that there is one giant "splat" sound in the near future for the U.S.
