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 retracts Seth Rich conspiracy story as Hannity vows to press on
A controversial Fox News report about the death of a Democratic National Committee employee last summer ? a story that had fueled a conspiracy theory that rocketed across right-wing media, but reportedly embarrassed some of the network?s staffers ? was retracted by the network Tuesday afternoon. The report attempted to tie the death of data analyst Seth Rich ? who was shot in what Washington police believe was a botched robbery attempt ? to the leak of DNC emails to WikiLeaks, which began publishing them two weeks later. The implication, spelled out most directly by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, was that Rich had provided the emails and was assassinated in retaliation or as part of a coverup.
