Senate Republicans scramble to save GOP health care bill

Senate Republicans scramble to save GOP health care bill

In a surprise to many in his own party, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday postponed plans for a vote this week on a GOP health care bill, as internal divisions among Republicans burst into the open on the best way to overhaul the Obama health law, delaying any vote until next month at the earlies. Here is what’s next on the health care front: 1. No vote until after the July Fourth break. The plan from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was to have a final vote on a GOP health bill by this Friday at the latest. Instead, the new plan is to come up with some deals and secure the 50 votes needed for passage in July. “I think this is a good decision,” said Sen. David Perdue (R-GA), who expressed optimism that a vote could take place the week of July 10. “We’re so close,” Perdue added. But one thing I’ve learned over the years is Congress only feels the pressure to act right before a vacation break – and that happens July 28. 2. Some not so subtle GOP messages. One thing that was striking were the statements issued by several GOP Senators – after the vote had been delayed – as several Republicans waited to publicly pronounce their opposition and concerns. For Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) and Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), it was the level of Medicaid spending. Maybe the biggest surprise was a tweet from Sen. Jerry Moran (R-KS) – who wasn’t on anyone’s radar – that he was opposed to the bill as it currently stands. To me, that’s a canary in the coal mine for broader GOP concerns about their health care bill. The Senate healthcare bill missed the mark for Kansans and therefore did not have my support. — Jerry Moran (@JerryMoran) June 27, 2017 3. Some Republicans sounding some odd notes. Along with the statement from Sen. Moran, another post-delay item deserves a note, from Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT). “The first draft of the bill included hundreds of billions of dollars in tax cuts for the affluent,” Lee said in a statement, which sounded more like something that a Democratic Senator might say, rather than a very conservative Republican. health111 4. Who can McConnell peel off on health care? While various GOP Senators said they opposed the Republican health plan, they also included the caveat that they don’t like the way it is right now. Things could change in coming days and weeks in order to get someone to vote “Yes.” But for Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV), his message in a telephone town hall to voters back in the Silver State on Tuesday night was that he doesn’t expect major changes in how the GOP bill would deal with the Medicaid program. “I do not believe that Ronald Reagan would have supported this health care bill,” Heller said. I’ll put him down as a “No” for right now. 'This just shows you they don't have the votes right now…and they can't count on mine going forward.' — Heller on GOP postponing vote — Jon Ralston (@RalstonReports) June 28, 2017 5. But don’t declare the bill dead just yet. Remember, the House came back from several near-death experiences on health care in March and April, and still managed to get something approved in May. So, just because the Senate has thrown a tire does not mean that the entire bill is going into the Legislative Ditch. Speaker Paul Ryan said a few hours before the Senate got the chain wrapped around the axle that he wouldn’t bet against his Senate counterpart. The Majority Leader will be tested now, and we’ll see how Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) performs in the spotlight. Ryan: 'I would not bet against Mitch McConnell…I have every expectation the Senate will move this bill.' — Phil Mattingly (@Phil_Mattingly) June 27, 2017 Stay tuned.

At least 17 registered sex offenders list same Walmart as home address

At least 17 registered sex offenders list same Walmart as home address

Shoppers at a Walmart in Cocoa, Florida, expressed concern after learning that at least 17 registered sex offenders, some designated as sexual predators, listed the store as their home address. >> Read more trending news  State law allows homeless sex offenders to use the address of the closest physical address for their registration. Most of the sex offenders listing the Walmart as their home address likely live across the street in a homeless camp set up in a wooded area, police said. Mother, and Walmart shopper, Heather Poole said she couldn’t believe so many sex offenders lived in such close proximity to a place children and families regularly visit. “We go there, like, 10 times a week,” Poole said. “We literally live right down the street. “It’s pretty scary, you know? We have kids and, you know, you don’t want (the sex offenders) being around and you don’t know who it is.” In a statement, Walmart said that the company goes to great lengths to keep shoppers safe. Walmart admitted, though, that it did not know about the homeless sex offenders using the Clearlake Road store as their home address. Walmart’s full statement: “We work to maintain a safe environment for our customers and associates. It’s disturbing to learn that convicted felons would list our store as their residential address. We condemn such a practice and must refer any other questions to local law enforcement.” According to the Cocoa Police Department, after registered sex offenders are released from prison, officers verify the address listed on their paperwork and check on the individual again in six months.

So what’s it like to be a dictator?

So what’s it like to be a dictator?

You've almost certainly HEARD of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. But Newsweek decided to delve into the little known day-to-day life of being a dictator.  They say Kim is no workaholic like his father, and despite many appearances and parades, he likes to relax and spend lavishly. They say state spending on luxury goods like alcohol, electronics, and high-end clothing, has nearly doubled to $645 million per year during his tenure. Kim tends to indulge on wine and cheese, they say, and actually had to cancel appearances at one point for health and weight problems. He has a wife, but she's rarely seen, and it's believed he has a daughter, but that's not confirmed. He has the main Central Luxury Mansion but also spends a lot of time at what Newsweek calls a palatial complex on the coast, which Dennis Rodman describes as a 7-star party in Hawaii, but Kim “is the only one there.” You can read more from Newsweek here.

We’re learning more about a bizarre death investigation in Sand Springs. Police identified a body found in a Walmart bathroom as 29-year-old Katherine Caraway of Muskogee. The bathroom had been locked for days. Employees told police they assumed the bathroom needed to be fixed, so they placed an out-of-order sign on the door.  Caraway’s body was found when they opened the door on Monday. Police aren’t sure exactly when the woman died. Caraway was seen on store video entering the room three days before her body was found.  Capt. Todd Enzbrenner says video shows Caraway entering the room about 6 p.m. Friday.  Enzbrenner says a maintenance worker opened the door shortly after 3 p.m. Monday. The body was sent to the state medical examiner to determine the cause of death, but police say the death doesn't appear suspicious.
Deputies used an unusual way to track down a criminal recently in Yukon. Canadian County Sheriff's Office reports they simply followed a trail of rose petals to a bathtub, where they found a man accused of trying to kill two of his relatives.  53-year-old Stacey Durrett allegedly tried to burn his cousins alive inside of a trailer.  However, his plan didn’t work and they escaped.  As for the rose pedals...they were meant to 'spice up the atmosphere'  for a prostitute Durrett had hired. Durrett was booked into the Canadian County Jail. 
A woman is robbed at gunpoint while walking her dog at LaFortune Park around 11:30 p.m. Monday. Tulsa police tell us three men approached the victim, taking her cell phone before running away into the park near 51st and South Yale. Officers got into a foot chase with the suspects, following them to a nearby apartment complex. Tulsa Police Sergeant David Brice said, “However we were able to recover the victim’s cell phone where the officer last saw that suspect run into the apartment complex.” None of the suspects have been arrested.
A two-month investigation into Tulsa area QuikTrip robberies resulted in four arrests on Monday.  Nicholas Byrd and three juveniles are believed to be connected to 10 robberies over the last couple of months.  Police credit QT for helping them in the investigation.  “QuikTrip  does everything right,” police said.  “They get video to us very quickly.” Two of the juveniles were caught red-handed at one of the locations near 31st and 129th. Police are still questioning other people.  We'll update the story if more arrests are made.
Employees at a Sand Springs Walmart made a startling discovery on Monday. KRMG's told a family bathroom was placed out of order over the weekend.  Police say when employees entered the bathroom, they found the body of a woman.  Police are not sure how long the body was in the bathroom.  Her name hasn't been released, but we do know her death shows nothing suspicious.
A shooting victim dies in the hospital after being gunned down on a grocery store parking lot. Tulsa police tell us a 26- to 27-year male was shot around 10:30 Monday night at the Turley Food Express at 504 East 56 Street North.  “Officers were able to locate witnesses that stated a black male arrived in the parking lot, exited a vehicle (and) fired multiple shots at the victim while in the parking lot,” said Tulsa Police Sergeant August Terbrock.   We're told witnesses had no description of the vehicle or the suspect. Crime scene detectives have taken over the investigation. The victim’s name has not been released.
