Last gasp for the Republican health care effort

Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy.

"It is time for Republicans and Democrats to come together, fix what is so clearly broken, and finally get something done for the American people", Hogan said.

"Stop using my name", Kimmel said, "'cause I don't want my name on it.

Three Arizona congressmen said Tuesday that Congress' failure to repeal the Affordable Care Act could limit what the legislative body can do on tax reform. At the end of this fiscal year, Republicans lose the reconciliation privileges that now would allow them to pass a bill with a simple majority, the Senate parliamentarian ruled Friday.

Sen. Mike Crapo is evaluating the Graham-Cassidy proposal, his press secretary said, and "remains committed to fulfilling the promise of repealing and replacing Obamacare". If your baby is going to die and it doesn't have to, it shouldn't matter how much money you make.

Apple Has Removed The Built-In App Store In iTunes 12.7
Redownloading ringtones can be handled on-device (with iOS 11 ), while Internet Radio stations have moved to the music library. Apple had been at the receiving end of criticism for making iTunes bloated and heavy with the integration of the app store.

"It's the wrong direction for America", the Republican governor said at a midday news conference about the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. Kimmel himself shared a Jennifer Rubin editorial on Monday which argued that Graham-Cassidy did not pass the "test". And now he's pushing a bill that would, once again, expose many more people to crippling medical bills.

"If you give California and NY a big chunk of money they're gonna set up a single-payer system". "They're taking care of the people who give them money, like insurance companies, and we're all just looking at our Instagram accounts, liking things, while they're voting on whether people can afford to keep their children alive or not". Meanwhile, SPDR S&P Pharmaceuticals (XPH) and First Trust Health Care AlphaDEX (FXH) declined more than 1% apiece. Politico said the bill is "short of 50 votes".

The letter was signed by Democrats John Hickenlooper of Colorado, Steve Bullock of Montana, Terry McAuliffe of Virginia, John Bel Edwards of Louisiana, Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania, and Republicans John Kasich of Ohio, Bill Walker of Alaska, Brian Sandoval of Nevada, Phil Scott of Vermont and Charlie Baker of MA.

The intention to introduce the bill to the floor likely means that the GOP is close to the necessary votes - and that McConnell may be pressuring some wavering members.
