What You Need to Know About the Process Republicans Are Using to Repeal Obamacare

There’s a lot of talk about the procedure Republicans are using to dismantle Obamacare, but what exactly is reconciliation and how does it work? Reconciliation is a budget tool used for legislation that changes taxes, spending, or the deficit. The procedure is especially powerful in the Senate, since a reconciliation bill only needs 51 votes to pass. This year, GOP lawmakers are taking a crack at repealing the health care law through reconciliation, and the Senate took the first major step toward dismantling the law Thursday. After a lengthy voting session, the upper chamber passed a budget resolution for 2017 that instructs four congressional committees to start writing the repeal bill.

Pentagon Nominee James Mattis Warns of Russian Attempts to ‘Break NATO’

Russia is the principal threat facing the United States, and the new administration should increase support to allies in the face of the Kremlin’s attempts to “break the North Atlantic alliance,” Donald Trump’s choice for defense secretary testified Thursday. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, speaking at his confirmation hearing before the Senate Armed Services Committee, said the U.S. and its NATO partners must strengthen the mutual defense alliance. “NATO from my perspective is the most successful military alliance in modern world history—maybe ever,” Mattis, 66, testified. “My view is nations with allies thrive and nations without allies don’t. If we did not have NATO today, we would need to create it. It is vital to the security of the United States and vital to the protection of the democracies we are allied … Read entire article »

Trump’s Entrepreneurial Approach Threatens the Washington Establishment, Says Newt Gingrich

President-elect Donald Trump is on a collision course with the Washington establishment, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Thursday. A city that is accustomed to doing things a certain way contrasts sharply with Trump’s entrepreneurial approach, he observed. Gingrich spoke at The Heritage Foundation for the second of a six-part series on understanding Trump and Trumpism. Thursday’s lecture examined the difference between Trump approach’s of “ahead of schedule and under budget” vs. the Washington approach of “behind schedule and over budget.” The American people can expect Trump to govern similarly to how he ran his campaign—unconventionally, Gingrich said. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); “What you have is a president-elect who is entrepreneurial rather than either corporate or bureaucratic, which is part of why he can tweet—he knows what he thinks,” Gingrich said. “He doesn’t … Read entire article »

Why Quick Repeal of Obamacare Should Come Before Replacement

When it comes to Obamacare, the buzzwords on Capitol Hill this week have been “repeal” and “replace.” As for the timing of which happens when, well, it depends on who you ask. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said replace will follow “soon after” repeal. At The Heritage Foundation, we have echoed that plan. However, Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., and a handful of other senators have argued that repeal and replace should happen “simultaneously.” While these senators are surely well meaning, they should know that their statements are threatening Congress’ attempts to repeal Obamacare at all. Why? The short answer is that the vehicle that Republicans plan to use to repeal Obamacare—budget reconciliation—is fragile, and any discussion of adding to, or changing, the repeal bill that Republicans passed via reconciliation in 2015 threatens … Read entire article »
