[Editorial] A hundred days: what is to show for it?

The first 100 days of a presidency are often taken as a measure of initial success and an indicator of the future potential of an administration. By this standard, the first days of President Donald Trump present a bleak outlook. In many respects, the most important features of the Trump Administration so far are the things that have not happened. The repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), a central campaign promise of the Republican Party, collapsed under the weight of logical inconsistencies in the Republican promise: that their plan could provide better health-care coverage, to more people, more cheaply, and cut taxes, all at the same time.
