The Senate introduced its latest version of healthcare reform. Holdouts to the original bill are reviewing the revised measure, which still includes fundamental changes to Medicaid that were opposed by moderate Republican senators in the initial draft. The revision also added a contentious conservative proposal that would let insurers sell scaled back, cheaper coverage if they offer at least one plan that adheres to the ACA's consumer protections. Also last week in the Senate, the president’s nominee to lead the FBI received bi-partisan praise and appears on his way to confirmation. In the House, the Appropriations Committee marched onward with spending bills, releasing a bill that includes $1.6 billion to begin construction of the president's proposed border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
