Is it ethical to comment on Trump's mental health? Most experts advise against

A Texas GOP congressman says if the three female Republican senators who oppose a bill repealing Obamacare were men from South Texas, he might challenge them to a duel.

Passions are running high on Capitol Hill - but pistols at 10 paces over health care?

As they struggle to wrangle together a majority, Senate leaders have started promising reluctant senators that if they pass a bill, any bill, they will go into negotiations with the House and fix the legislation there. The debate on the Senate floor would be open, but it is not at all clear what plan Republicans are actually trying to pass.

The question is whether McConnell's plan is to bring up the repeal and replace bill, known as the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA); the repeal-now-and-replace-later bill, known as the Obamacare Repeal Reconciliation Act (ORRA); or some other modified version of either.

When introducing Trump, Vice President Mike Pence said that "thanks to President Trump's leadership, help is on the way" for those who would support repealing Obamacare. Another bill could repeal and replace the 2010 law while also overhauling Medicaid, the federal health insurance program for the poor and disabled.

"For the past 17 years, Obamacare has wreaked havoc on the lives of innocent, hard-working Americans", Trump said. There will be a "vote-a-rama" allowing many amendments on the health care bill (which is technically a budget bill), and there may be a vote on a straight repeal of Obamacare with no replacement. But the effort also suffered from a mismatch between the longtime public posture of Republicans (Obamacare must and will be fully repealed) and their private misgivings (do we really have to do this, even partially?).

"Any senator who votes against starting debate is telling Americans that you are fine with the Obamacare nightmare", Trump said. He called the vote senators' "last chance to keep their promise".

That sounds like common sense, but since the idea of working with Democrats is anathema to many Republicans McCain's statement seemed to affirm that the push for a GOP health care bill was dead.

"It's impossible to determine the final product of the health care bill coming out of the Senate...but, obviously my hope is that the Senate gets health care done", Ryan said. The CBO expects that by 2026, 15 million more people would lack insurance than under current law.
