Wednesday, November 1, 2017 Chelsea are paying the price for selling Nemanja Matic to Manchester United in the summer, according to Ray Wilkins.

Selling the GOP health care bill: Does Trump help or hurt?

It was a platform most politicians can only hope for: A captivated, 6,000-person crowd and more than an hour of live, prime-time television coverage to hype the Republican vision for a new health care system. But when President Donald Trump got around to talking about the Republican plan — about 15 minutes into his speech — he was wildly off message.

Then, when Nintendo said it was going to ship more systems in the wake of overwhelming demand that the company, whose product sales projection department is apparently staffed by 19th-century employees who still think the real money is in playing cards, it only did enough to keep the eBay markup…
