This past week, FBI Director James Comey told a congressional committee that there is an active investigation into Russian collusion with Trump officials during the election campaign but that there is still no proof it actually happened. That dominated another news cycle or two, with all kinds of conjecture offered in the absence of facts.

The legislation would repeal much of former President Barack Obama’s 2010 health care law, including its requirement that people buy policies. This story will be updated.  Share this:

In his opening statement, Devin Nunes, the chairman of the committee, made clear how important the issue was to the G.O.P. “Who has leaked classified information?” he asked. “We aim to determine who has leaked or facilitated leaks of classified information so that these individuals can be brought to justice.” Republicans were especially agitated about whether any former Obama Administration officials …

Paul Ryan’s health-care bill is under attack from conservatives who believe that the government shouldn’t force citizens to pay for the health care of others.CreditPHOTOGRAPH BY MARK PETERSON / REDUX A few years ago, a relative of mine, an electrician who made a good living laying cable alongside highways, told me that his economic future depended on one thing: his back. He saw what happened to older guys—he meant men in their late thirties—when the pain became unbearable. They either became supervisors or they had to quit. At the time, my relative was about to turn thirty himself, and I remember him saying, “My back is killing me.” I’ve been thinking about that conversation this week, as President Trump has cajoled and …

Tech News Keywords: , , , , , , ,

While President Trump has his hands full lining up support from House Republicans for his overthrow of Obamacare, Senate Democrats have taken a clear stand against his nominee for the Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch, raising the stakes for his confirmation. On Thursday, after three days of listening to his “lack of candor” at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) said his party plans to filibuster Gorsuch, which means that the conservative Colorado jurist will likely have to hurdle the 60-vote threshold to take his seat on the High Court. Right now Democrats are in the minority with only 48 Senators, leaving the Republicans with 52. “After careful deliberation, I have concluded that I cannot …

Enlarge this image House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas, says the latest version of the GOP bill would let states decide on required benefits. J. Scott Applewhite/AP hide caption toggle caption J. Scott Applewhite/AP A last-minute attempt by conservative Republicans to dump standards for health benefits in plans sold to individuals would probably lower the average person’s upfront insurance costs, such as premiums and deductibles, say analysts on both sides of the debate to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. But it will likely also induce insurers to offer much skimpier plans, potentially excluding the gravely ill, and putting consumers at greater financial risk if they need care. As part of the push by House …
