Mr. Talley demurred. “It would be inappropriate for me as a nominee to comment on the advisability of any nomination,” he wrote.PhotoSenator Charles E. Grassley of Iowa with Republican colleagues last month.Credit J. Scott Applewhite/Associated PressSenator Dianne Feinstein of California, the ranking member of the committee, asked if Mr. Talley had ever argued a motion in Federal District Court, given that he had never tried a case. He had not.Ms. Feinstein also pointed to Mr. Talley’s prolific social media presence before his nomination. He once referred to Hillary Clinton as “Hillary Rotten Clinton” on his public Twitter account, which is now private.In 2013, he wrote on his blog that armed revolution was an important defense against tyrannical government.

Fact Check: Take Claims About State and Local Tax Deductions With a Grain of Salt

The deduction is claimed by taxpayers in every state, though larger percentages of taxpayers in the Northeast and the West benefit from it.About 46 percent of tax returns in Maryland — the state with the highest share in the country — used the provision and averaged almost $13,000 each in deductions in 2015, an analysis by the Government Finance Officers Association shows. On the other end, only 17 percent of tax returns in South Dakota took advantage of the provision, and averaged $6,000 each in deductions.Taxpayers in two states, California and New York, claimed more than 32 percent of the total deduction in 2013, the Tax Policy Center estimated.This alone does not mean that Indiana is bankrolling New York. Larger states, like New York and California, are getting bigger subsidies through the state and local tax deduction “because they’re paying substantially more in federal taxes,” said Kim Rueben, an author of the Tax Policy Center report.Multiple studies show that most states that are considered to be a “net donor” — those that pay more in taxes than they get back from Washington — also benefit the most from the state and local tax deduction.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyGet the Morning Briefing by EmailWhat you need to know to start your day, delivered to your inbox Monday through Friday.Thank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

In nine of those states, all of which voted for Hillary Clinton over Mr. Trump in the 2016 presidential election, at least 30 percent of tax returns claimed the state and local tax deduction.New Jersey — where more than 40 percent of taxpayers took the deduction — experienced the largest deficit per capita.

The Governor Blocked Medicaid Expansion. Now Maine Voters Could Overrule Him.

Kari Medeiros, 40, of Eastport, a tiny town in the state’s poorest county, earns less than $5,000 a year cleaning houses and pet sitting, and has back pain that has worsened to the point where she can barely mop and sweep.“With MaineCare I believe I’d be able to find a provider who would see me,” she said, referring to the state’s Medicaid program. “But a lot of people here don’t vote. So many families here are having addiction problems with their loved ones, and they’re not focused on going to vote — even though those are the people that need it the most.”Under the Affordable Care Act, the federal government picked up the entire cost of new enrollees under Medicaid expansion for the first three years and will continue to pay at least 90 percent.

Siding With Trump, Judge Clears Way for Trial Over Health Subsidies

The subsidies reimburse insurers for reducing deductibles, co-payments and other out-of-pocket costs for seven million low-income people who buy midlevel silver plans on the Affordable Care Act marketplace. Under the law, insurers will still have to provide the discounts, known as cost-sharing reductions, but may be unable to collect reimbursement from the government.Mr. Trump ordered federal officials two weeks ago to stop making the monthly payments. Another federal district judge, in Washington, ruled in 2016 that the payments were unconstitutional because Congress had never appropriated money for them.On Wednesday, Judge Chhabria concluded that “both sides have reasonable arguments’’ on the main legal question: Whether Congress appropriated money for the cost-sharing payments.Two senior senators, Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, a Republican, and Patty Murray of Washington, a Democrat, announced last week that they had agreed on a bill to extend the cost-sharing payments through 2019 and make it easier for states to obtain waivers from requirements of the Affordable Care Act. After initially endorsing the deal, Mr. Trump backed off a day later, and the White House demanded changes as a condition of its support.The Congressional Budget Office said Wednesday that the Alexander-Murray bill would produce a modest reduction in federal budget deficits, but would not substantially change the number of people with coverage.The budget office estimated that the legislation would reduce deficits by a total of $3.8 billion over the next decade. With the deficit for the last fiscal year alone reaching $666 billion, that is a relatively small number, but supporters of the bill made the most of it.“The Congressional Budget Office has found that our proposal benefits taxpayers, it benefits consumers — not insurance companies,” said Mr. Alexander, the chairman of the Senate health committee.Continue reading the main storyThe proposal has broad support from Democratic senators and at least a dozen Republican senators […]

Hopes Dim for Congressional Russia Inquiries as Parties Clash

Nine months into the Trump administration, any notion that Capitol Hill would provide a comprehensive, authoritative and bipartisan accounting of the extraordinary efforts of a hostile power to disrupt American democracy appears to be dwindling.PhotoRepresentative Devin Nunes, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, was forced to step aside from leading the panel’s Russia investigation.Credit Gabriella Demczuk for The New York Times“Congressional investigations unfortunately are usually overtly political investigations, where it is to one side’s advantage to drag things out,” said Mr. Gowdy, who made his name in Congress as a fearsome investigator of Democrats. He added, “The notion that one side is playing the part of defense attorney and that the other side is just these white hat defenders of the truth is laughable.”Instead, he said, he is looking to Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel, to conduct an apolitical investigation.None of the challenges have thus far stopped the committees. And given the closed-door nature of their work, prominent new avenues of inquiry could always emerge, such as Russia’s use of social media to sow chaos and discord, capable of influencing the public discourse.But all three are up against a ticking clock, with Republicans in both chambers eager to wrap up the investigations before too long.Particularly in the House, partisan fighting is likely to undermine whatever conclusions the committee reaches […]
