Health Care Reform and Consumer Freedom Amendment
As the Senate considers a replacement for the Affordable Care Act, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has proposed an amendment saying “if an insurance company sells in a given state a plan that is consistent with the [ACA’s insurance regulations], that company can also sell any other insurance plan consumers desire.”

That proposal would maintain the coverage guarantees established by the ACA for individuals with pre-existing conditions on the exchange, while allowing individuals without pre-existing conditions to regain the affordable plans they enjoyed prior to the ACA – potentially at about a third of the cost of those currently available on the exchanges.
An Unpopular Heath Care Reform Bill
Republicans are about to do something very stupid. Using bribery, threats and cajolery, they intend to pass a catastrophically unpopular bill on a party-line vote.

GOP: Obamacare is unpopular, so let’s pass a new health care bill that’s even MORE unpopular.

Normal Person: Why would you do that?
Charlie Gard Court Case
“Significant evidence” was introduced during a sometimes emotional hearing at London’s High Court to determine whether Charlie Gard may receive therapy.

At one point early in the day the 11-month-old’s parents, Chris Gard and Connie Yates, stormed out of the courtroom over some comments by judge Nicholas Francis. Francis later said he understood how difficult the hearing was for them and that they could leave again if necessary.

Gard and Yates are fighting to take Charlie to the U.S. He has mitochondrial depletion syndrome and is unable to move or breathe on his own. A U.S. doctor offered to try nucleoside therapy, a treatment administered orally, on Charlie. For months, his doctors at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) in London have insisted he must be taken off life support to prevent more suffering, and U.K. courts have backed them.
Bungled Collusion is Still Collusion
Donald Trump Jr.’s e-mails discredit the ‘nothingburger’ argument the president’s supporters have been advancing for months. The Russia scandal has entered a new phase and there’s no going back. For six months, the White House claimed that this scandal was nothing more than innuendo about Trump-campaign collusion with Russia in meddling in the 2016 election. Innuendo for which no concrete evidence had been produced.

Yes, there were several meetings with Russian officials, some only belatedly disclosed. But that is circumstantial evidence at best. Meetings tell you nothing unless you know what happened in them. We didn’t. Some of these were casual encounters in large groups, like the famous July 2016 Kislyak–Sessions exchange of pleasantries at the Republican National Convention. Big deal.
