Rep. Steve Scalise released from intensive care unit


An update on the Louisiana Republican's condition was posted to his Twitter account Friday afternoon, saying his "continued good progress allowed him to be transferred out of the Intensive Care Unit on Thursday".

Steve Scalise, the Louisiana lawmaker shot last week at a USA congressional baseball team practice, is no longer in the intensive care unit of the hospital where he is being treated and remains in fair condition, the hospital said on Friday.

Last night at the White House congressional picnic, President Trump said that Scalise's condition was continuing to improve.

Five people, including Scalise, were taken to area hospitals after the early morning shooting in Virginia.

The anti-Republican gunman, James T. Hodgskinson, was fatally shot by officers during his attack.

Matt Mika, a lobbyist for Tyson Foods, was also shot.

One of the problems is that once rates reach rock bottom (which is pretty well where they are right now) the only way is up. This could be a good time for more young Americans to take out a Roth Individual Retirement Account or IRA for short.

When Scalise was shot last week, a bullet punctured his left hip and traveled across to the other hip, causing "substantial damage" to his blood vessels, bones and some internal organs, Dr. Jack Sava, who treated Scalise at the hospital, said Friday. The Alexandria city park and fields around the baseball field reopened this weekend.

Four others were also wounded, and the attacker was killed.
