the negative cbo score has killed the american health care act


the congressional budget office report on the house-passed version of the american health care act came out last week, and it was pretty much as expected. the headline is “the american health care act would reduce federal deficits by $119 billion over the coming decade and increase the number of people who are uninsured by 23 million in 2026 relative to current law.” that includes a reduction in the amount of insured by 14 million next year alone.while there are major reasons to doubt the assumptions behind and therefore the conclusions produced by the cbo estimate, this report assures the house-passed version of ahca will never become law.this is not meant as a partisan statement, derived from ahca’s unpopularity, or due to my own analysis of how the ahca was a poorly conceived bill passe

in a close vote, the senate ends debate on warrantless surveillance of u.s. citi


on tuesday, the senate undertook a cloture vote to end debate on a bill that would renew a controversial legal loophole that provides u.s. intelligence agencies with a means for the warrantless surveillance of american citizens. with 60 for and 38 against, the senate voted in favor of cloture, a considerable blow to privacy advocates who have long pushed for reform.a two-thirds majority cloture vote of 60 is necessary to end a senate filibuster. the vote ran for over an hour, slowing down considerably as the final votes trickled in and eventually slowing to a halt at 58-38.the bill in question is known as s. 139 or the fisa amendments reauthorization act of 2017, a six-year reauthorization of section 702. the bill, which renews an nsa surveillance program, cleared the house with little res

everything president trump has tweeted (and what it was about)


president trump on tuesday offered an easier path for his legislative agenda.the key concept here is cloture, and it came up -- consequentially -- in april, when the senate confirmed neil m. gorsuch, trump's nominee for the supreme court, over a democratic filibuster. republicans changed the rules to overcome the filibuster in that case, but a cloture vote is still required to end a filibuster of legislation. that means 60 senators have to vote to end debate before a vote can occur on the actual bill.the times' lisa mascaro explained:"cloture began as a rarely used tool to end filibusters, and it is a cumbersome, time-consuming process. once a cloture petition is filed, an intervening day must pass before a vote can be taken. after that, there is another 30 hours of debate before a vote ca
