Cruz asked about health care, faces protestors
SenateRepublicans returned to Washington from a holiday recess with new and deepening disagreements about their health-care bill, with key Republicans differing Sunday not merely on how to amend the bill, but also on whether a bill could pass at all.
Senator John McCainsaid it may now be time for republicans to come up with a new proposal with support from democrats. "That's what democracy is supposed to be all about".
Gallup also said there is more uncertainly about the future of health policy since Mr. Trump took office, since he has given mixed signals about how firmly he will enforce the "individual mandate" requiring Americans to hold insurance.

That gives Congress roughly three weeks before its August recess to overcome internal Republican bickering and Democrat opposition, craft a bill Trump likes, pass both the House and Senate, and get it to the president for his signature.
The Senate confirmation hearing for Federal Bureau of Investigation nominee Chris Wray is likely to draw much attention this week.
The explosive story promises to heighten the controversy over the collusion allegations and the President's meeting with Putin, which have hung over the White House's policy efforts. But it also comes after Trump talked to Russian President Vladimir Putin about his country's alleged interference in the United States elections when they met last week.
Also, the House will face pressure to take up a Russian Federation sanctions bill that got stalled over a procedural issue in the days before Trump's bilateral meeting with Putin. Yet conservatives, not ruling out the bill's passage, spent the weekend talking up another backup plan. Republicans denied that was their intent, insisting that the "blue slip" violation, which mandates that bills generating revenue begin in the House, had to be addressed first.
Finally, the Senate armed services committee will hold a hearing Thursday examining allegations Moscow orchestrated a failed coup attempt in Montenegro previous year.
