Medicaid concern influenced McCain's health vote — The Latest

But consider this: All three expressed grave reservations about Trump before the election, yet none stood on principle after the election and lobbied to keep electors from handing Trump the presidency. This should have been about the country he obviously loves, not John McCain's petty jealousies and hatreds. "And so, that unnerving silence in the face of an erratic executive branch is an abdication, and those in positions of leadership bear particular responsibility". "Democrats believe that special interests have hijacked the tax code".

"There's just too much animosity and we're too divided on health care", Hatch toldReuters.

Left unsaid was a matter of avoiding blame: senators knew that if the House passed a bill and the Senate did not, blame for the initiative's demise would fall on their shoulders, and no one else's. Further complicating the prospects for enactment are the Administration's views on FDA user fees.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced in a joint-statement last week that they have removed the border adjustment tax (BAT) from the proposal. "Mr. President, you're a public servant in a system of limited government with a duty to uphold and to defend and to teach to our kids the constitution's system of checks and balances".

One House GOP member in the meeting summarized Ryan's remarks as "essentially, we are the functioning chamber".

Although he was shocked by Trump's election, he originally planned to figure out a way to work with his fellow New Yorker on issues where they might have common ground, like an infrastructure bill. Percentage-wise, the women did way better than the men: only 60 percent approved, compared to more than 97 percent of the Republican men.

Wilson said there was a time when Hatch worked with Democrats to get things done. He came over to me and we talked for a couple minutes. The number purchasing insurance on the individual markets is relatively low. He was one of the Keating Five, lawmakers accused of impropriety amid the savings-and-loan crisis of the late 1980s, and was reprimanded for poor judgment, a verdict widely applied to his selection of Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska to be his running mate nine years ago. "We will not support any tax reform plan that includes tax cuts for the top one percent", Senate Democrats wrote in a letter to the president and top Republican leaders.

But Marc Short, the White House's chief legislative liaison, expressed hope this week that they can win some Democratic support for tax reform.

In a final burst of action Thursday, the Senate overwhelmingly approved a Food and Drug Administration funding bill, and agreed to more than 60 Trump administration nominees, more executive branch nominations in a single day than the Senate had approved all year to date.

Lee called the failed vote a "blessing in disguise" in his weekly newsletter and said Congress must go back to the drawing board.

But, it's still not clear whether this end up in gridlock like healthcare.

Americans are caught in the middle of GOP extremists who claim they can improve care by taking away people's coverage and Democrats who demand single-payer universal coverage. They act as though they are musing about political theory in a college seminar, not speaking of legislation that affects millions of citizens across the land.

To the editor: it seems to me that Trump made a rookie mistake that any business person - from the start of a career - knows not to do: he burned a bridge. As William Gale, a tax-policy expert at the nonpartisan Brookings Institution, explained to Bloomberg, "Distance is a tax reform's best friend".
