Mitch McConnell is standing by Lisa Murkowski Kathryn Krawczyk

Mitch Mc Connell said Wednesday that

CNN legal analyst Joan Biskupic said Brett Kavanaugh would be "changing the law of the land" for the next 20 years as the newest Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. Democrats say the proliferation of such plans will raise premiums for older and less healthy people by letting healthier consumers out of coverage that complies with the ACA.

Kavanaugh began his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee with a 45-minute, 5,200-word opening statement to instead issue a fiery denunciation of Democrats, accusing them of wanting "revenge for the Clintons" and on Trump's election as president.

She acknowledges that some voters are disappointed in her decision, but says that's unavoidable because Alaskans were split on whether Kavanaugh should be confirmed. "There are better ways to do it", said Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn said in advance of the vote. "I wouldn't want to be on the wrong side of that vote".

The Republican party raised a total of $5.7 million from Sept. 30 to October 5, compared to $4.38 million raised by the DCCC from the end of September to October 5, which is the day Kavanaugh secured the votes in the Senate to be confirmed. The administration drew criticism for a similar move last year from advocates who said the downtime would hinder efforts to sign people up for coverage, but the administration counters that maintenance downtime happens every year and is created to occur during the slowest periods on the site. But he says the controversy over Kavanaugh could end up helping Republicans by generating more enthusiasm among GOP voters who feel he was mistreated. "If the Democrats take the House, this is what it will look like every day". Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who's facing a surprisingly robust re-election challenge from Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke.

"I think it'll help the president get re-elected", he said.

A Kaiser Family Foundation analysis revealed that 71 percent of the Republican-backed "junk" plans do not cover outpatient prescription drugs, while 62 percent of these plans don't cover substance abuse treatment.

"What they did was a disgrace", he said.

A Wider Lens Is Needed to Treat Those With Mental Illness
This week marks Mental Health Awareness Week, an important opportunity to bring attention to the impact mental illness has on 1 in 5 Americans.

He said it was unprecedented for a new justice to face such a situation. "It's not just impeaching Trump, it's impeaching Kavanaugh, it's unwinding the entire Trump program".

The left's use of uncorroborated sexual assault allegations to block Kavanaugh's path to the Supreme Court, Trump said, violated "every notion of fairness, decency and due process".

Lawmakers from both parties are putting the best face on voters' mood.

Murkowski got a vote of confidence Wednesday from Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, who told The Associated Press in an interview that "nobody's going to beat her" in Alaska. Tim Kaine, D-Va., who spends weekends campaigning and is expected to be easily re-elected next month. None of the "junk" health insurance plans cover maternity care.

The Democratic effort to block Trump's short-term plans lost 50-50, with legislation needing a majority to pass.

Short-term health plans don't have to adhere to the Affordable Care Act's regulations that protect people with pre-existing conditions.
