  • Hours after Republicans barely mustered enough votes to start debate on a House-passed GOP bill designed to overhaul the Obama health law, the Senate easily rejected one plan put forward by Republican Senators, as GOP leaders continued to struggle to figure out how to forge a health care bill that could win final approval on the Senate floor later this week. The first casualty was an amended version of the “Better Care” plan from GOP leaders – along with additions from Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH), who wanted to add back $100 billion in Medicaid funding, and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who pressed for his ‘Consumer Freedom Amendment,’ which would let insurance companies that sell regular Obamacare plans also offer lower-cost plans with less health coverage. “What we know won’t work is Obamacare,” Cruz argued on the Senate floor. But the Cruz plan ran afoul of strict Senate budgetary rules, and needed 60 votes for approval. Republicans were not even able to muster a majority, getting only 43 votes, as nine GOP Senators voted against the plan. Nine GOP 'No' votes on BCRA as amended : Lee, Paul, Moran, Corker, Cotton, Graham, Collins, Heller & Murkowski — Jamie Dupree (@jamiedupree) July 26, 2017 “We can’t give up,” said Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA), as Republicans fully acknowledged they weren’t sure where the debate was headed in terms of the details of a GOP health care overhaul bill. “It will depend on what’s in the final bill, which nobody has any idea as to how that’s going to end up,” said Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA). “It’s going to be interesting to see what happens,” said Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT). Opponents of the Republican effort were still ramping up their efforts to push back against GOP health care plans, worried that something will pass late this week by the narrowest of margins. “The voting now means nothing,” said Andy Slavitt, who ran the operations of the Obamacare exchanges under the Obama Administration. “The backroom deals mean everything.” Reminder, several of the upcoming votes are window dressing while GOP leadership attempts to negotiate a compromise bill behind the scenes. https://t.co/gzoJJhDkNH — Joseph (@JoePWilliams31) July 26, 2017 More votes were set for Wednesday, as Republicans were desperately seeking a way to get almost anything approved this week – and then send that on to House-Senate negotiations.

  • Police arrested a 22-year-old man Sunday after several people reported that he was naked and chasing seagulls on a popular beach in northern Michigan, according to multiple reports. >> Read more trending news The Ann Arbor resident, whose name was not released pending his arraignment, was spotted around 3 p.m. Sunday at Petoskey State Park, the Petoskey Review-News reported. In a news release obtained by the newspaper, state troopers said witnesses reported that the nude man chased seagulls on the public beach before running to a parking lot and “dove” into it as though he were diving into water. Troopers said the man might have taken LSD before authorities were called. The man screamed at and threatened a trooper who tried to arrest him, WWTV reported, but he eventually calmed down and authorities apprehended him. Officials took him to a hospital for treatment of the injuries he suffered when he jumped into the parking lot, according to WWTV. Troopers arrested the man on multiple charges, including indecent exposure and obscene conduct. Authorities said he might face additional charges, pending the results of a blood analysis, according to the News-Review.
