HEALTH CARE BILL DEAD  There are now three Republicans who have declared they are not voting for the most recent Obamacare repeal. Barring a miracle, the replacement of Obamcare is effectively dead for a year. http://cvote.it/2hv8XnD

HOUSE VOTE ON LATE-TERM  House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) will host a press conference today to detail when the House will vote on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would make abortions illegal after 20 weeks. http://cvote.it/2htK3Vn
