Cornyn raises possibility of working with Dems — The Latest

The Treachery of Murkowski Collins and McCain

If it had been McCain/Lieberman that year the Arizona senator would have lost even worse to Obama and it would have provided Lieberman with the unheard of distinction of losing on the presidential tickets of both parties (hard to remember now but Lieberman was Al Gore's running mate in the fateful 2000 election).

While we have debated the pro-growth benefits of border adjustability, we appreciate that there are many unknowns associated with it and have decided to set this policy aside in order to advance tax reform.

On Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., and Ron Wyden, D-Ore., the top Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee, released a letter signed by 45 of the 48 Senate Democrats calling on McConnell and Trump to launch bipartisan talks.

The newspapers today are filled with Republicans saying things like "That's a good thing, right?" - a comment to Politico by South Dakota Sen. The terms laid out by Democrats are unlikely to tempt Republicans, who are planning to use a filibuster-proof Senate procedure to advance the legislation without their help. Seeing the president's poll numbers crash after health-care reform went down to defeat was bad enough; seeing their own prospects crater may be enough to get some of them thinking about how to foreshorten the Trump ordeal.

Last week, as Democratic leaders rolled out a repackaged economic agenda, we invited readers to send us their opinions about what the Democratic Party stands for.

Robert King reported in the Washington Examiner, "Some Senate Republicans say they are not abandoning Obamacare repeal, although any progress is likely months away". Both Obama and Trump have continued making the payments as the case has dragged on.

In the most remarkable example of public Trump-bashing, Sen.

Yet for all his sanctimony, McCain is just as politically opportunistic and just as hypocritical as many of his Senate colleagues. "We didn't have 50 Republicans". The committee plans to hear from state insurance officials, patients, governors, insurance companies and healthcare experts, Alexander and Murray said.

Senator Orrin Hatch, a Republican from Utah.

"While the pace of nominations for political appointees has picked up in recent weeks, critical leadership positions remain vacant at almost every agency and department", Max Stier, the partnership's president and chief executive, said before Thursday's rush of confirmations. A White House timeline envisions a House vote on tax legislation in October and Senate vote in November.

Several other Senate Democrats running for reelection in states where Trump won in 2016, warned that the combative White House plan on taxes resembled the tactics that led to last week's dramatic failure on health care in the Senate. Unless this is done, you will most certainly see in future elections a major political reordering of the Congress neither conducive to conservatism nor preservation of the Constitution itself.

"Recognizing that Obamacare is not perfect, Democrats are willing to work with Republicans to strengthen Obamacare and find areas where it can be improved", she said. If Trump successfully halts the billions in insurance payments, and the ACA goes under, the tens of millions left without health-care coverage will know exactly who to blame, and it won't be Hillary Clinton or Democrats. It wasn't single payer, for one, but they took what they could get.

The House gave President Trump a health care bill that did not come close to resembling the plan that the new president wanted. "IT'S TIME!" the president said over Twitter.

But it was Reid who then in 2013 acted and changed the Senate permanently: Now, whenever one party has a bare majority, it can follow the Reid precedent and change the rules with 51 votes. That can also be said of other big-name Republicans.

The downside to the varied ventures of modern government isn't theoretical.

Taking any measure of the nation's health-the opioid epidemic, the soaring rate of teen suicide, rising mortality among middle-aged men succumbing to "deaths of despair", growing infant and maternal mortality, declining overall life expectancy-America faces a health care crisis of monumental proportions.

It might be too late to undo the damage entirely, but the GOP might decide to avoid doubling down. "We look forward to working together to write tax reform legislation that provides real relief for America's working families". Thus, he was incapable of really influencing the content or outcome of the process.
