With the end of September marching closer and 2018 around the bend, Republicans are still unlikely to pass any bill to repeal and replace a law that has saved lives. In other words, the Affordable Care Act is here to stay.
The White House wants to see the plan approved by Congress, but not even GOP leadership is interested in pushing the measure through.
Republican Senators Lindsey Graham (SC), John McCain (AZ), Ron Johnson (WI), and Bill Cassidy (LA) held a joint press conference to announce that they would vote no on the skinny Obamacare repeal bill unless they got assurances from Paul Ryan that it would never become law.
Republicans are learning that they can't defend the indefensible.
During his appearance on Fox News Sunday, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) shut down host Chris Wallace's attempt to get him to agree with Republican talking points regarding the Keystone XL pipeline.
In an article published Tuesday in the E&E Daily, a Beltway publication devoted to environmental and energy issues, Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) stated that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid "runs the Senate like a plantation."
