Trump aide urges defeat of MI member of Freedom Caucus

Trump hits the links with Rand Paul White House says

Asked by Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday" if he would be prepared to risk a government shutdown over GOP agenda items like President Donald Trump's proposed border wall or defunding Planned Parenthood, McConnell said, "We're going to negotiate all of those items in the context of this funding bill".

Republican Sen. Rand Paul told reporters Monday he thinks proponents of the GOP House leadership-backed Obamacare repeal bill are attempting to bang "a square peg into a round hole", but believes conservatives and moderates are getting closer to finding common ground on health care reform.

A mix of hard-line conservatives and more moderate Republicans sank last month's drive to pass the Obamacare repeal and replacement.

At the White House, Pence said he and President Donald Trump "remain confident that working with the Congress we will repeal and replace Obamacare", while White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Trump wanted an agreement, if possible.

Trump warned caucus Chairman Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., in a closed-door Capitol Hill meeting about not supporting the overhaul plan, saying, "Oh Mark, I'm coming after you".

This is published unedited from the IANS feed. Freedom Caucus there, that would be fine. "They are negotiating as we speak", Trump told the FT. But he added: "if we don't get what we want, we will make a deal with the Democrats and we will have in my opinion not as good a form of health care, but we are going to have a very good form of health care and it will be a bipartisan form of health care".

The Trump administration could attempt to reduce or eliminate federal subsidies and take other actions to weaken state and federal health insurance exchanges, said Micah Weinberg, president of the Bay Area Council Economic Institute.

Trump said the bill was pulled because "I didn't want to take a vote".

White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham confirmed that Trump was playing golf with Paul as well as White House budget director Mick Mulvaney at Trump National Golf Club in Potomac Falls, Virginia.

KFC to stop using chickens raised with antibiotics meant for humans
Antibiotics specific to animals may still be used to treat diseases in the chickens, KFC said. Human infections from antibiotic-resistant bacteria pose a grave threat to global health.

"Justin Amash is a good friend and one of the most principled members of Congress", said Jim Jordan of OH, on CNN's State of the Union.

States would also be allowed to do away with the "community rating", which would allow prices to rise for some patients - effectively gutting Obamacare's guarantee that people could get coverage even if they have pre-existing conditions. "Tweets and statements and blame don't change facts".

"Talks on Repealing and Replacing ObamaCare are, and have been, going on, and will continue until such time as a deal is hopefully struck", he tweeted Sunday before the golf match.

The underlying House Republican bill would repeal much of Obama's 2010 law.
