California, New York City move to provide health care coverage to undocumented residents

(CNN)The Democratic leaders of California and New York City are taking steps to provide health care coverage to some undocumented residents. NYC Care will start rolling out in coming months and willtake more than two years to be fully implemented, de Blasio said. It will cost at least $100 million, but the mayor said that the city would save a lot because fewer people would go to the emergency room, which provides pricey and inefficient care. De Blasio told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that the city would not raise taxes but would instead fund the program through the city’s public health care system, which is now in better financial shape after years of dire straits. “We’re spending a lot of money …

Senate Democrats considering blocking all legislation that doesn’t reopen the government

(CNN)Senate Democrats will try to block action on a Syria sanctions bill when it comes up for a vote Tuesday, an effort to keep the focus on the government shutdown. McConnell has said he won’t make his members vote on a bill to reopen the government without assurances that Trump would sign it, though at least two Republican senators have pushed to reopen the government while wall negotiations continue. The measure in question Tuesday, combines four Middle East-related bills, including new sanctions on the Syrian regime, and is viewed by critics of Trump’s decision to withdraw US troops there as a vehicle to speak out against that move.

Humanity remains woefully unprepared against the threat of an asteroid impact, but space agencies have put plans in place to test the technology that might one day save us (even if it sounds crazy).

The target is a double asteroid called Didymos, the Greek word for twin. Didymos’ main body is roughly 800 meters (2,600 feet) across, with a satellite nicknamed Didymoon about 160 meters (525 feet) across. DART aims to impact on the surface of Didymoon and create a detectable shift in its orbit. NASA has approved the mission to …

Unions See Pick For House’s Top Trade Job As Test For Democrats In Populist Era

Now organized labor, an influential foe of free trade agreements, wants to make sure a trusted friend shepherds that process in the House so that its voice is fully heard. Pascrell, a union ally, is keen to ensure Trump ratifies a fundamentally pro-worker North American trade agreement. Labor leaders consider the current revisions an improvement on the status quo, but believe it can still be toughened to help workers. Blumenauer and Kind declined the ranking member position in the last Congress, but they have slightly more seniority than Pascrell. CWA, which represents over 100,000 call center and manufacturing workers whose jobs are vulnerable to offshoring, is coordinating its push for Pascrell with other manufacturing unions. These include the United Steel …

US officials head to Mideast amid tension over Syria pullout

The Syria decision, which led to the resignations of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and the U.S. special envoy for the anti-Islamic State coalition, Brett McGurk, is expected to dominate the officials’ agenda, along with the Trump administration’s hard line on Iran, the conflict in Yemen and the situation in Iraq. The State Department announced Friday that veteran diplomat Jim Jeffrey, who has been serving since August as the special representative for Syrian engagement, would assume McGurk’s anti-IS duties. The Trump-ordered withdrawal of U.S. troops in Syria was initially expected to be completed within weeks, but has been slowed as the president has acceded to requests from aides, allies and members of Congress for a more orderly pullout.
