GOP ObamaCare fight faces do-or-die procedural vote
Time is ticking away on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s hopes of passing ObamaCare repeal legislation before the July 4 recess.
A CBO score that found the legislation would leave 22 million more people without insurance in the next decade has raised the stakes on a procedural vote that could come as soon as Tuesday.
At least four Republicans say they may vote against their party on the motion to proceed, underscoring the opposition to McConnell’s bill.
The defectors include centrist Sen. Susan Collins (Maine), who panned the bill on Twitter Monday evening; fellow moderate Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.); and two conservatives, Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ron Johnson (R-Wis.).
McConnell can only afford two defections.
Trump gets green light for partial travel ban
The Supreme Court delivered a win to President Trump on Monday, allowing his travel ban to take effect, albeit on a limited basis, before it hears a lawsuit against the policy this fall.
While lower courts had blocked the ban since February, the Supreme Court cited precedent to allow parts of it to take effect, stating that preserving national security is “an urgent objective of the highest order.”
“To prevent the government from pursuing that objective by enforcing [the ban] against foreign nationals unconnected to the United States would appreciably injure its interests without alleviating obvious hardship to anyone else,” the court said.
DHS to consult with other departments before travel ban implementation
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on Monday said it will give further details on the implementation of President Trump’s travel ban after consulting with the Departments of Justice and State.
The comments come after the Supreme Court on Monday granted the Trump administration’s request to reinstate part of the travel ban meant to temporarily block people from six predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States.
The DHS said in a statement the Supreme Court has allowed the department to “largely implement the President’s executive order and take rational and necessary steps to protect our nation from persons looking to enter and potentially do harm.”
