Cruz Paul want to go ‘nuclear’ on Obamacare repealMore

In Speaker Paul Ryan's frenzied rush to shove Zombie Trumpcare through the House, he chose to forego getting a Congressional Budget Office score of the legislation, because the more information members had about the bill the harder it would be for them to vote for it.

Democrat Representative Geran Tarr of Anchorage said the senate version of the bill follows the lead of the house in stopping the unsustainable practice of the state paying cash to oil companies for tax credits.

The CBO score might make it more hard for Republicans to support the bill. The CBO is expected to release an updated estimate next week.

The news that Paul Ryan was holding onto the bill before sending it to the Senate surprised a number of Republican representatives.

"House Republicans, listen to this", Justice said. Well, next Wednesday, we're getting one.

"I'll tell you this, if we slow and slow and slow it down, we might as well not do it because it's not going to have any effect", he said.

Instagram found to be the worst social media platform for mental health
More young people use social media than any other age group, with 90 per cent of young people active across the various platforms. A spokesperson from Samaritans told Independent.ie that work needs to be done to make social media safer for young people.

According to several aides and other procedural experts, if Republicans send the bill to the Senate now and the CBO later concludes it doesn't save at least $2 billion, it would doom the bill and Republicans would have to start their repeal effort all over with a new budget resolution.

In other news, the Senate passed a REAL ID bill Monday. So even if the finance portion of the AHCA was to save tens of billions of dollars, the health portion would still have to find its own $1 billion in savings.

"We're moving [the bill] over to the Senate probably in a couple weeks", Ryan told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt. "Just out of an abundance of caution, we're waiting to send the bill to the Senate for the final CBO score", he said.

Missing the target could mean the bill would be debated and voted on again, in the House.

Republicans also have to be sure that their bill doesn't have any other fatal flaws like crossing jurisdictional boundaries not named in reconciliation instructions or having an impact on social security. Before the amendments were added, the CBO projected the legislation would slice about $150 billion over 10 years.

It's unclear what assumptions the CBO will make about what states will do with that newly created flexibility. "So we're just basically being overly-cautious, but there's really kind of a non-issue here". "To prove that you meet the reconciliation test".

Djokovic and Nadal progress
I'm happy I reached the semi-finals in Madrid, which has been my best result this year. "It came at the right time , of course". All the players are looking to raise their game for Paris. " I played a more aggressive game and I'm serving better ".

Indeed, the bill was kept away from most Republican lawmakers before its release, prompting the spectacle of Sen.

State Sen. Marci Francisco, D-Lawrence, asks a question during a Senate tax committee hearing on a House-passed bill that would raise $110 million over two years by closing sales tax exemptions at the State House in Topeka, Kan. Even so, 20 Republicans still voted against the bill. Ryan said that the CBO score would not force another vote in the House.

In a 17-22 vote on the evening of May 16, the House failed to concur with changes to House Bill 111, which passed the House in April, on grounds that Senate changes had significantly weakened the bill.

Indeed, since the bill's passage, lawmakers have faced (or not) angry constituents in their home districts, while polls show Americans overwhelmingly oppose Trumpcare.

In addition to reducing federal spending on expanded Medicaid, the House health care bill caps federal spending growth for traditional Medicaid program as well.

Led by Governor John Kasich of OH, the governors are using a nine-page proposal they crafted in February as the platform to shape what they think a critical portion of an Obamacare replacement law should look like, according to a half dozen people who helped write the plan. "After, we did have repeated meetings with people in House leadership, the door was open and we expressed our concerns but it didn't seem to do much good".
