It’s Wednesday, the midpoint of the week. Yesterday, the U.S. Senate voted to allow floor debate on the Republican proposal to repeal the Affordable Care Act in a procedure that required a tie-breaking vote from Vice President Mike Pence and Senator John McCain’s return after recovering from surgery. Republicans proceeded to lose on a floor vote approving an amendment to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s “skinny” repeal plan that removes key provisions of the ACA, including the individual mandate.

Elsewhere, the House approved the Senate’s bill imposing new sanctions on Russia as President Trump continued to disparage Attorney General Jeff Sessions for recusing himself from overseeing the special counsel’s Russia investigation.

As per usual, good luck on the day ahead and thanks for checking out Wonks This Way.
