first_imgBush told Reid not everyone shares her set of priorities, but that it’s not damaging her relationships with her peers. “I have a relationship with all of the people on the caucus. A lot of them that are saying that this was hurtful, but what’s hurtful for me is the people in my community dying,” Bush said. “What’s hurtful is St. Louis being No. 1 for police killings since 2013, for six years straight, according to some research.”St. Louis had the most shootings per capita, according to a 2017 Vice News analysis of data from 50 of the nation’s largest police departments. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch listed 30 police shootings in the St. Louis area this year alone.- Advertisement – “I’m not trying to hurt anybody’s district or (prevent) anybody from keeping their seats,” Bush said. “I’m not looking at feelings though. I’m looking at life. I’m trying to save lives.”In her interview with Reid, Bush weighed in on a diverse set of topics from Democratic political strategy to health care as President Donald Trump’s administration vigorously tries to snuff out former President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare reform effort, the Affordable Care Act, in a Supreme Court case. Get this: Republicans are actually attempting to argue that because Congress got rid of a penalty attached to the Affordable Care Act’s requirement that most Americans get health insurance, that the whole act should be struck down. Even the court’s conservative justices aren’t buying that one.- Advertisement – “So many children have been knocked off of the Medicaid rolls, and it’s been OK by our local government,” Bush said. The registered nurse added that millions of people in her state are going to be affected by the Supreme Court’s decision, including those with preexisting conditions. Missouri residents voted 53.3% to 46.7% to approve a constitutional amendment that will expand who is eligible for Medicaid. The expansion, which covers Missouri residents earning up to 133% of the federal poverty level, is an optional part of the Affordable Care Act for states, and the federal government pays for 90% of the costs. Bush said complaints that Medicaid is “a burden on our system” miss the mark. “When your family member shows up to the hospital, I don’t pay attention to what insurance they have. I make sure that your family member is taken care of.”RELATED: Trump finds hostile audience in Roberts, Kavanaugh in effort to destroy Obamacare- Advertisement – RELATED: The Supreme Court hears one more ‘laughably weak’ challenge to ObamacareRELATED: Want to flip a state blue?

first_imgINDIA were frustrated by Dinesh Chandimal and Angelo Mathews in Delhi yesterday but remained in control of the third Test with a 180-run lead over Sri Lanka at the end of day three.The tourists started the day on 131-3 with Mathews and Chandimal at the crease, and the duo stubbornly continued to pile on the runs for the fourth wicket.Mathews (111) brought up his first century since August 2015 before being caught behind off Ravichandran Ashwin, who later moved on to 55 Test scalps for the calendar year, joint-best with Australia spinner Nathan Lyon, who was also among the wickets in Adelaide yesterday.Chandimal will be back in the middle on day four after reaching stumps on an unbeaten 147, despite receiving little support following the dismissal of Mathews, and Sri Lanka survived until the end of the day to finish on 356-9, chasing India’s 536-7 declared.Mathews reminded everyone of his quality with the bat by producing his first ton since his 110 against the same opponents in Colombo two years ago, although India were guilty of squandering multiple opportunities to end what became a 79.1-over partnership.An edge to Wriddhiman Saha finally signalled the end of Mathews’ innings – the India gloveman succeeding where his team-mates had failed following a number of missed catches.The wickets tumbled thereafter as Sri Lanka slipped from 317-5 to 356-9 by the close of play, with Sadeera Samarawickrama (33), debutant Roshen Silva (0), Niroshan Dickwella (0), Suranga Lakmal (5) and Lahiru Gamage (1) failing to provide Chandimal with a partner to match Mathews.Ashwin (3-90) was India’s most potent attacking threat but the hosts will have to wait a bit longer for their second turn with the bat, with Chandimal returning to the crease with Lakshan Sandakan (0) today.India lead the three-match series 1-0 after two Tests.
