Although the Republicans lost their power struggle with the White House over the budget, they continue to want to put an end to Obamacare. However, they're at odds over how to do this.
The US tax bill, the first key measure passed by the Republicans, does not even try to cloak its intent. It's an unashamed enrichment scheme for the wealthy and slap in the face for the poor, says DW's Michael Knigge.
The measure now goes to President Donald Trump for his signature. The biggest rewrite of the US tax code in more than 30 years marks the first major legislative achievement of Trump's presidency.
The US senator has said he will oppose the latest Republican attempt to replace Barack Obama's health care law. Another 'nay' from the Arizona senator could be the fatal blow, given the party's small Senate majority.
Republican Senate leaders have announced that the latest bid to repeal Obamacare has flatlined. Senator Susan Collins became the latest Republican lawmaker to announce that she would vote against it.
