Transcript for House to vote on condemning effort to repeal ACA
A lot of headlines out of Washington. I want to bring in Mary Bruce for more. Let's begin with the big stalemate over disaster aid, more than $13 billion for those hit hard by flooding and for Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is getting shortchanged and the president is hitting back hard. Reporter: He's making clear he does not want to give them any additional funding and slamming the island's leaders tweeting they are incompetent or corrupt and says Puerto Rico is a mess and that nothing works. Democrats are demanding any disaster relief bill include this additional funding to help Puerto Rico with its recovery from hurricane Maria but clearly the president and Republicans aren't budging. It is unclear how this impasse is going to end and also caught in the middle, of course, are the billions of dollars in disaster relief to help those recovering from devastating floods in the midwest. Another major development, last week we saw the trump administration join the lawsuit to overturn Obamacare and the president vowed to make the party the party of health care. He seems to be punting overnight tweeting that he prefer congress wait until after the 2020 election to vote on a new health care plan. The president caught Republicans off guard when he reignited this debate and when his justice department backed that lawsuit that would overturn all of Obamacare but Republicans on the hill do not have a replacement plan waiting in the wings and with health care one of the top issues for voters, it seems the president is signaling he does not want to have this fight at least not right now. A big fight in the 2020 election and in the race for the democratic nomination crucial fund-raising numbers coming in. Mayor Pete buttigieg surprised a lot and kamala Harris did better. Reporter: She announced she raised $12 million in just over the first two months of campaigning for president. Now, we are still closely watching to see how Bernie Sanders and Beto O'rourke do. How much money they've been able to raise but this could catapult her into the top tier of fund raising. Definitely does that. Thanks very much.
