Republicans Brace For New Obamacare Repeal Fight Ahead Of 2020 Election

"And the Department of Justice becomes the Department of Injustice when it wants to tear down health care benefits", she said.

Democrats, meanwhile, frowned at the waiting game.

On Twitter, Sarah Huckabee Sanders shared a March Madness bracket filled with journalists - including New York's Jonathan Chait - who had pursued the Mueller report for what it was: an inquiry into whether or not the sitting president of the United States conspired with a foreign power to win an election.

Trump said the climate-change proposal would be a good campaign issue to fight over with Democrats.

AP's VoteCast survey of more than 115,000 voters in the 2018 midterm elections found that health care was identified as the most important issue by 26 percent of voters, including almost 4 in 10 of those who voted for a Democratic House candidate.

Barr's letter instead said the decision on the crime of obstruction was passed to himself, and deputy Rod Rosenstein: "The Special Counsel's decision to describe the facts of his obstruction investigation without reaching any legal conclusions leaves it to the Attorney General to determine whether the conduct described in the report constitutes a crime". Barr has said previously that he wants to make as much of it public as he can under the law. Vice President Mike Pence, who agreed with Mulvaney about joining the lawsuit, also raised questions about what the White House strategy would be if the suit succeeded, according to the source.

Williams withdraws from Miami Open
Williams had been due to face 18th seed Wang Qiang of China, who defeated Johanna Konta in the second round yesterday. Osaka served for the match up 6-4, 5-4, 30-0 but Hsieh never stopped fighting.

Mueller's report, according to the summary by Barr, cleared President Donald Trump and his campaign on any collusion with Russian Federation. Democrats hope to scrutinize early Federal Bureau of Investigation evidence of obstruction by Trump, while Republicans expect to trace what they view as a possible anti-Trump conspiracy at the Justice Department. GOP senators applauded his arrival, and he celebrated what he called his "clean bill of health".

While the law probably will be upheld in the end, the move sets up the possibility that hundreds of thousands of Americans could lose their health insurance - perhaps around the time of the 2020 presidential election - with the Trump administration part of the reason why.

"The Republicans I've talked to, they're scratching their heads", Steele noted, adding that those Republicans would prefer to avoid discussing health care because "they know their history on this subject is replete with failure".

"She's always demonstrated leadership that takes all kind of factors into account", Ocasio-Cortez reportedly said. Many Democrats dismiss Barr's four-page summary as inadequate. I've seen the Barr report.

Trump has said he "wouldn't mind" if the full report were released. But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he's hesitant to agree to releasing information from Mueller that would "throw innocent people who've not been charged under the bus". And while the U.S. Court of Appeals in New Orleans that's handling the matter is known for its conservatism, Congress' decision in 2017 to remove the penalty for not having coverage means Texas and its allies could have problems proving any harm to give them grounds for their challenge.
