'Trumpcare' bill set to hurt Republicans

On the conservative end were Freedom Caucus Republicans, who felt the AHCA didn't repeal enough of Obamacare, like the provision that doesn't allow insurers to charge more based on preexisting conditions.

Macron defeated Marine Le Pen, a far-right nationalist who threatened to take France out of the European Union. Early reports show a voter turnout of approximately 75%, the lowest turnout in many years.

While the 217-213 House vote helped to alter the narrative that the Republican party was not accomplishing anything despite controlling Congress and the White House, the healthcare bill faces obstacles in the Senate, where Republicans have made clear they will write their own version of the measure.

"It's close to near impossible", said Orrin Hatch, who as finance committee chairman will play a key role in drafting a Senate bill. Instead of the Obamacare subsidies that are tied to income and premiums, the GOP plan would provide Americans with refundable tax credits based mainly on age to purchase health insurance. In the summer of 2009, Paul Ryan said that "I don't think we should pass bills that we haven't read, that we don't know what they cost".

Buffett blames ex-Wells Fargo execs for fake account scam
He also said rising health care costs, rather than high taxes, were the biggest drag on USA businesses. The annual meeting offers one of the few times Weber gets to hear Buffett discuss other topics.
