GOP Sen Burr: Health Care Deal Unlikely This Year

Republicans in Congress are uniquely positioned to set limits on Trump's power, to rein him in when he goes too far, and to take meaningful steps to fix damage that he and his advisers may do to national security. That was before his tumultuous first few months in office, which have been full of intra-party fighting about health care and investigations that are inching closer to Trump and his senior aides.

Republicans need 50 Republicans to pass a health care bill in the Senate, meaning they can only lose two Republicans, a hard task in a chamber with diverse views ranging from the moderate Maine Sen.

"This bill would allow law-abiding citizens to be able to carry concealed, regardless of obtaining the mandatory government permit, and this ability to carry concealed is only in places where it is now allowable to openly carry a firearm", Millis said, noting 13 other USA states have similar rules on the books.

"I don't understand how people don't get that it's not just the Democrats in Washington that are roadblocking Trump", Limbaugh said.

In the meantime, if you're looking for an app-based, market solution to your health-care needs, well ... tough. "Why aren't you trying to do something to stop Obamacare?"

Keep an eye on this over the next few weeks, because when it comes to federal spending, it's nearly like Obama never left.

Neither he nor Congressional Republicans can manage to pass a health care bill that is affordable.

Returning to the radio after a long Memorial Day weekend, conservative host Rush Limbaugh weighed in on Trump's biggest roadblock of them all - backstabbing Republicans. Medicaid spending is the second largest portion of state budgets, so cuts will be felt. Former President Barack Obama supported a 40% levy on generous employer plans, though that move, known as the Cadillac tax, has been delayed by Congress until 2020.

Notes From The Phillies' 2-1 Win Over Colorado
Thursday's outing will be Rockies starter Tyler Anderson's first time facing the Phillies this season and the third in his career. Anderson, who turned a forgettable April into a strong May, limited the Phillies to four hits through his first six innings.

But there's more than one way to fund a wall. But when it comes to lavishing federal money on health care and infrastructure, Trump suddenly becomes reduced to a party of one. Ted Cruz: Make cartel kingpin "El Chapo" pay for it. Other than the special circumstance of an off-year election, President Donald Trump beat Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in the suburban Atlanta district by just 1.5 percentage points, according to a Daily Kos Elections calculation of precinct-level elections data.

Also, former President Obama chose to weigh in on the decision.

Pence repeated what Trump has said since his campaign: the administration will stay focused on unleashing the USA economy by turning back unnecessary regulation and continue to take steps to rebuild the military in a cost-effective way. Jordan Schachtel has the details on how the president's move looks like a cave to "shallow state" advisors taking up for Palestinian authorities.

In response to critics like Warren and countless others, White House officials and Trump allies have attempted to defend the withdrawal by characterizing it as part of a broader plan to protect American jobs and spur economic growth.

Here's a list of other takeaways from Planned Parenthood's latest annual report. Mike Pence and Reince Priebus are the embodiment of business Republicans and Steve Bannon appears far more interested in muscular America First nationalism than the details of domestic policy.

Only Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has faced a tough campaign in the past five elections, having fought to win a bitter contest a year ago by just 0.6 percent, out of the 14 GOP veterans in vulnerable districts.

Clinton's actions were atrocious, but surely not what the framers envisioned as the "high crimes and misdemeanors" specified in the U.S. Constitution's impeachment clause.
