Conservative Sen. Rand Paul remained opposed Monday to the Republican bill repealing the Obama health care law despite fresh revisions, darkening White House and GOP leaders’ hopes of staving off defeat in a Senate showdown this week.

Internet giants, including Alphabet’s Google and Facebook, are moving to compromise on several major policy issues as they adjust to an abrupt shift in the political winds in Washington. Just last week, the U.S. Senate took a big step toward advancing legislation that would partially strip away the internet industry’s bedrock legal protection, a 1996 law that shields companies from liability for the activities of their users. At the same time, Democratic senators are writing legislation that would create new disclosure rules for online political ads after Facebook this month revealed that suspected Russian trolls purchased more than $100,000 worth of divisive ads on its platform during the 2016 election cycle.

It also presents another opportunity for President Trump to isolate and neutralize the far right of the Republican party in the House and Senate and their far-left Democratic congressional counterparts as he did with legislation for hurricane Harvey and Irma relief and extending the federal debt limit.
