CBO score could roil Senate health care negotiations
The Congressional Budget Office will release its prediction of the effects of the House-passed health care overhaul Wednesday afternoon, potentially stirring up more dissent among Senate Republicans who have spent much of this month attempting to hash out their own health care deal. The CBO will likely deliver a similar verdict for the American Health Care Act (AHCA) as it did for an earlier version of the House bill, which the office said would result in 24 million fewer Americans having health care coverage and $150 billion in deficit reduction over 10 years compared with Obamacare.

Fox News witnessed Republican candidate slam reporter to the ground
This post was updated to reflect an eyewitness report from Fox News. So 2017 has reached a new low. On the eve of Montana's special election, Guardian political reporter Ben Jacobs reported that Republican candidate Greg Gianforte body-slammed him at Gianforte's campaign headquarters in Bozeman. Greg Gianforte just body slammed me and broke my glasses ? Ben Jacobs (@Bencjacobs) May 24, 2017 Audio of the incident was recorded, which we've embedded above. On it, Gianforte can be heard screaming at Jacobs to "get the hell out of here" after a scuffle. "You just body-slammed me," Jacobs then says. Jacobs reported the incident to the police, who are investigating the alleged assault, and he sought medical attention. Later in the night, a Fox News reporter who witnessed the incident said "Gianforte grabbed Jacobs by the neck with both hands and slammed him into the ground behind him" and then "began punching the man, as he moved on top the reporter and began yelling something to the effect of 'I'm sick and tired of this!'" Last month, Jacobs broke a story about Gianforte's ties to U.S.-sanctioned Russian companies. For those seeking updates, just spoke with Ben. He is currently seeking medical attention and getting an X-ray on his elbow. https://t.co/j0fYkAcBsO ? Sabrina Siddiqui (@SabrinaSiddiqui) May 25, 2017 Gianforte's spokesperson released a statement shortly after the news broke, effectively denying Jacobs' account. "It's unfortunate that this aggressive behavior from a liberal journalist created this scene at our campaign volunteer BBQ," it read. Gianforte's statement: pic.twitter.com/WVNdA1yZ8w ?

Changes to his page have been coming in fast and already include the alleged assault on Jacobs. "There's nothing in the Bible that talks about retirement. And yet it's been an accepted concept in our culture today," Gianforte, who made millions in the software business, said while speaking at the Montana Bible College. "Nowhere does it say, 'Well, he was a good and faithful servant, so he went to the beach.'" @jswatz @yashar The worst parts of his Wikipedia are true... pic.twitter.com/XvzynXtUZT ?

George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) May 25, 2017 Gianforte is hoping to fill the congressional seat vacated by Ryan Zinke, who was tapped as U.S. Secretary of the Interior earlier this year. His opponent, Democrat and political newcomer Rob Quist, has of late closed the gap between himself and the frontrunner, tightening a race that should be a lock for Republicans.
