While the ongoing investigation into the tRump campaigns backroom dealings with Russia takes center stage, there are other goings-on within the marble walls and hallowed halls of the Capitol. The AHCA bill (tRumpCare) is sputtering along, ready to die as Republicans in both the House and the Senate avert their eyes from it's hideous deformity. They are split among those who think it doesn't cut enough and those who know how bad it will be for their constituents (including - gasp - Ted Cruz).
More importantly, though, are the confirmation hearings for potential Supreme Court justice Neil Gorsuch. While the majority of Americans (those who DIDN'T vote for tRump) are still angry about the Republican-controlled Senate's refusal to even have a hearing for President Obama's pick to replace Antonin Scalia, insult has been added to injury with the choice of Gorsuch, and the Senate moving forward with confirmation hearings. It's almost a shame that the hearings are coinciding with the Russia circus, because there are important points being discussed.
