Congress recessing, leaving much undone, tensions with Trump

Trump touted the tax proposal Tuesday in a meeting with business executives, saying his team was "pursuing bold tax cuts" to help companies grow.

"We need to have a timeline that's over the next few months that's going to stabilize the exchanges, but primarily try to bring the premiums down in the exchanges", said Emanuel, an architect of the ACA, better known as Obamacare.

Republican leaders in Congress, however, face a pair of deadlines that are delaying any action on taxes.

A senior State Department official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Tillerson remained focused on finding a way forward in the relationship, with a firm belief that cooperation between the two can improve global stability.

Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan, of Wisconsin, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, of Kentucky, are in the fight until the end, despite polls that show a majority of Americans support Obamacare. He adds: "You can thank Congress, the same people that can't even give us HCare!"

Some more-conservative Republicans are demanding that any increase in the debt ceiling - a legislative limit on how much the government can borrow - come coupled with broad plans to cut spending and shrink the federal government, provisions that would probably preclude any Democratic support for the increase.

Trump had little choice but to sign the legislation because Congress clearly had the votes to override his potential veto. But with a Republican in the White House and the party controlling both the House and the Senate, it's the GOP's responsibility to deliver the votes. Republicans had planned to pass a fiscal year 2018 budget resolution and use it as the vehicle for tax reform.

White House legislative director Marc Short said Monday that he wanted everything to be wrapped up by November.

North Carolina Sen. Thom Tillis said relations with Russian Federation are bad "because they've done bad things".

Senate Republicans failed to pass the motion to proceed on the scaled-back version of the Obamacare repeal bill Friday.

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, who leads the Senate's tax-writing panel, said on the Senate floor Tuesday that he would pursue a more deliberative process than Congress used during the health-care discussions, holding public hearings and working closely with Democrats.

If you're a Democrat, what do think Republicans really stand for?

The two other Republicans who voted with Democrats against the healthcare plan, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, told reporters that onlookers in airports cheered when they each arrived home after helping defeat the effort. Neither chamber has even approved a budget, which would be a necessary prerequisite for the GOP to pass a tax plan through budget reconciliation, a parliamentary procedure that requires a simple majority instead of the filibuster-proof 60-vote threshold.

Failure to get a health care bill passed was a significant blow, and tax reform - the other big-ticket reform that congressional Republicans had pledged - is struggling to gain footing.

Alexander said he wants to come up with a plan to stabilize insurance markets before September 27, when insurers must sign contracts for sales in 2018. Both will be curtailed sharply if Congress doesn't act.
