Jim Newell and Jordan Weissmann read the entrails of GOP senators’ statements—do Republicans have enough votes to get their health care bill passed? Then they look at waivers—might they really allow states to use health care funds on stadiums or anything else?—and assess the effectiveness of the Republicans’ suggested six-month lockout to encourage young, healthy people to maintain continuous insurance coverage.
