Republicans have 52 members in the Senate, which means they can afford only a couple of defections if they are to pass House Republicans' Obamacare replacement bill. Here's what Sen.

March 8, 2017 11:55 PM ‘They will suffer the consequences,’ Democrats say of Republicans on Obamacare

Rep. Erik Paulsen is a Minnesota Republican who survived one of the most competitive House races of 2016 by a surprising double-digit margin even as Donald Trump lost his suburban Twin Cities district by almost 10 points. Four months later, Democrats have launched their campaign to unseat Paulsen in two years, and their weapon of choice is health care. For the first 21

When President Trump tweeted to commemorate International Women's Day early Wednesday, he did so in his characteristically Trump fashion — assuring us that he has "tremendous respect for women" and the things they do that are so "vital to the fabric of our society and our economy." If that sounds somewhat oddly defensive, it's because Trump has been forced 26

March 1, 2017 10:20 AM In Congress and Across Country, Mixed Views of Trump's Speech

Where they viewed U.S. President Donald Trump's joint address to Congress Tuesday night was different. Some sat inside the U.S. House of Representatives chamber.

February 28, 2017 3:44 PM The Daily 202: Republican governors divided on Obamacare replacement

THE BIG IDEA: Donald Trump has learned that repealing and replacing Obamacare is “an unbelievably complex subject” since he became president. “Nobody knew health care could be so complicated,” the president mused to a group of 46 governors at the White House yesterday. Except everyone in his audience has long known exactly how complicated this issue 62
