Harrowing Storms May Move Climate Debate, if Not G.O.P. Leaders

“We can get a fair amount of bipartisanship if we talk about severe weather and resiliency,” Mr. Schatz said. “For some people, it’s just about the phrase ‘climate change’ being too politically loaded.”Most movement among Republicans has come from moderates and lawmakers from areas vulnerable to flooding, where seeming oblivious to extreme weather could be politically risky. There have been no notable cracks in Republican opposition to climate policy among party leaders, or even within the powerful Texas congressional delegation — a group battered by Hurricane Harvey but fiercely protective of the state’s oil economy.For the most part, senior Republicans have avoided directly discussing climate in the aftermath of Harvey and Hurricane Irma, which pounded the Southeast this week. They have focused chiefly on scrambling to get government aid to stricken states. The Environmental Protection Agency administrator, Scott Pruitt, said debating climate now would be “very, very insensitive.”PhotoFlooding in a suburb of Beaumont, Tex., in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.Credit Christopher Lee for The New York TimesBut in Florida, where Irma left more than a dozen dead and millions without electricity, a handful of Republicans have been more outspoken. The Republican mayor of Miami, Tomás Regalado, urged Mr […]

Medicare for All or State Control: Health Care Plans Go to Extremes

Their proposal was the last gasp of Republican efforts to undo the Affordable Care Act. Those efforts, which seemed sure of success in January, appeared to meet a dead end on the Senate floor in late July, when Republicans could not muster even a simple majority for a repeal bill.But Mr. Graham and Mr. Cassidy have persisted, and they said they had encouragement from the White House and some Republican governors.Under their proposal, money would be distributed based on a complex formula, and the regional cost of living would be one factor, but the sponsors acknowledge that higher-spending states like Massachusetts would receive less than under current law.The block grant would replace federal money now being spent under the Affordable Care Act for the expansion of Medicaid, for premium tax credits and for subsidies that reimburse insurers for reducing out-of-pocket costs for low-income people.The Graham-Cassidy bill includes many features of earlier Republican bills. It would repeal the Affordable Care Act’s requirements for most Americans to have coverage and for larger employers to offer it, and would also eliminate a tax on medical devices.In addition, the Graham-Cassidy bill would make deep cuts in Medicaid, putting the entire program on a budget and ending the open-ended entitlement that now exists. States would receive a per-beneficiary allotment of federal money.A goal of the Graham-Cassidy bill is eventually to equalize the amount of federal money states receive for the health care of each person with annual income from 50 percent to 138 percent of the poverty level (from roughly $6,000 to $16,650 for an individual).Continue reading the main storyBut time is running out on the bill […]

California Today: California Today: A Setback for the State’s Republican Leaders

Here’s the sign-up.)Today’s introduction comes from Adam Nagourney, our Los Angeles bureau chief.California Republican leaders have been on a mission to rebuild their struggling party as the state turns increasingly Democratic and pushes farther left on such issues as immigration and climate change. In the latest example, the Republican leader of the State Assembly, Chad Mayes, persuaded some Republicans to join with Democrats in voting to extend cap-and-trade, California’s signature emission reduction program.Make that the former Republican leader of the State Assembly.Mr. Mayes announced Thursday that he was stepping down in the face of criticism from conservatives over his vote.

McConnell, in Private, Doubts if Trump Can Save Presidency

Still, the back-and-forth has been dramatic.In a series of tweets this month, Mr. Trump criticized Mr. McConnell publicly, then berated him in a phone call that quickly devolved into a profane shouting match.During the call, which Mr. Trump initiated on Aug. 9 from his New Jersey golf club, the president accused Mr. McConnell of bungling the health care issue.

Common Sense: What Would It Take for Trump to Get His Corporate Tax Wish?

After last week’s collapse of health care legislation, many believe Republicans can’t afford to fail again, especially on what is widely considered their signature issue: taxes. As Scott A. Hodge, president of the conservative-leaning Tax Foundation, told me this week: “If the Republicans fail with tax reform, it would be truly catastrophic. It’s really all or nothing at this point.”There’s only one major stumbling block to a 15 percent rate, and the conventional wisdom is that it’s an intractable one: how to pay for it.According to estimates by the Tax Foundation, a cut in the corporate rate to 15 percent would add $2.2 trillion to the deficit over 10 years on a “static” basis, which assumes no additional economic growth. After factoring in growth and higher resulting tax receipts, known as “dynamic” scoring, the deficit would grow by $1 trillion, according to the foundation.And if rates also go to 15 percent for pass-through entities — businesses that pay taxes at individual rates, like limited-liability corporations and partnerships — that adds another $1.5 trillion on a static basis, and $1.3 trillion on a dynamic basis, the foundation estimates. (A cut in pass-through rates has much less impact under dynamic scoring, because individuals and small businesses spend far less on capital projects and thus do less to stimulate the economy.)Paying for corporate tax cuts of that magnitude “is a tremendous challenge if you don’t want to blow a hole in the deficit,” Mr. Hodge said. “Anyone writing tax legislation will find that the options are very limited.”How big is the challenge? In their tax blueprint, House Republicans could only get the corporate rate to 20 percent. […]

How Schumer Held Democrats Together Through a Health Care Maelstrom

Now that Democrats have defeated a major plank of the Republican agenda, the question is whether that success will drive President Trump and the Republican leadership to the negotiating table — and whether Mr. Schumer can keep Democrats who are up for election in red states in line and safe from defeat next year.While Republicans have spent the last six months enmeshed in internal squabbling, Mr. Schumer has largely made sure Democrats stood on the sidelines. Mr. McConnell cut out Democrats on Day 1 of this Congress, using every method to bypass them on deregulation votes, cabinet confirmations, a tax overhaul and health care policy.“That has had a big impact,” said Senator Dianne Feinstein, Democrat of California. “If you leave out a whole political party,” she said, “and then you chasten them for not helping, well, that unites that party.”Yet Democrats give Mr. Schumer — song-belting, frequently badgering, endlessly frenzied — credit for his tireless attention to senators from every faction, and for quiet outreach to Republicans who he thinks could be partners down the line.He has worked carefully — far more than Mr […]
