A draft Republican bill replacing President Barack Obama's health care law would end its Medicaid expansion, scrap fines on people not buying insurance and eliminate taxes on the medical industry and higher earners.
Instead, it would create tax credits worth up to $4,000, allow bigger contributions to personal health savings accounts and impose a new levy on expensive health coverage some employees get at work.

Trump evoked his friend Jim, "a very, very substantial guy," in an address Friday at the Conservative political Action Conference. Jim used to be a regular visitor to Paris, Trump said, but hasn't made the trip in four or five years because "Paris is no longer Paris."
Hidalgo tweeted a photo of herself alongside Mickey Mouse and Minnie and said: "To Donald and his friend Jim, from the Eiffel Tower, we're celebrating the attractiveness of Paris with Mickey and Minnie."

This week's weather has been perfect for a picnic across much of the United States. But while you're snacking on a salad in the sun, don't let stressing about whether this unseasonably temperate February will mean an extra-hot summer rain on your parade.
Experts say that warm weather across the East Coast and the Midwest does not necessarily mean it’s going to keep steaming in the next few months.
“There’s no strong statistical link between a warm February and what the summer will be like,” said Jon Nese, associate head of Pennsylvania State University’s undergraduate program in meteorology and host of the school's "Weather World" broadcast.

Former President Barack Obama caused a commotion in New York City Friday afternoon when he stopped by a Fifth Avenue office building. There was a strong security presence around the entrance to the building prior to Obama's exit, and by the time he made his departure the street was thronged the people waiting to catch a glimpse of the former president.
White House chief of staff Reince Priebus asked top FBI officials to dispute media reports that President Donald Trump's campaign advisers were frequently in touch with Russian intelligence agents during the election, according to three White House officials. Democrats accused Priebus of interfering in a pending investigation.
The officials said that Priebus' Feb. 15 request to FBI Director James Comey and deputy director Andrew McCabe came as the White House sought to discredit a New York Times report report about contacts between Russian intelligence officials and members of Trump's 2016 campaign team.
As of Thursday, the FBI had not commented publicly on the veracity of the report and there was no indication it planned to, despite the White House's request.
In a pair of tweets Friday morning, Trump slammed the FBI for not stopping leaks on national security, though he didn't mention the reporting on Priebus and the FBI specifically.
Mack Beggs won two matches at the Texas state championships Friday. But the larger conflict — over whether a 17-year-old transgender boy should be wrestling girls — remained unsettled.
President Donald Trump returned to many of his campaign promises, and hinted at some new action the White House will soon take, in a speech to thousands of conservatives gathered Friday at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
"Our victory was a win for conservative values," Trump said, pledging to support members of law enforcement, repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act and build a wall "soon, way ahead of schedule."
The call-back to the campaign trail included some popular phrases — and a jab at Hillary Clinton that elicited chants of "lock her up!" Trump reiterated his assurance that he will "put American first," saying there is no global flag, so that terrorism doesn't strike in the U.S.
And in looking forward, Trump vowed that would "never apologize" for protecting the safety of American people and promised "brand new action" in the coming days to protect the nation.

It was not business as usual for some workers in Japan on Friday.
As the clock reached 3 p.m., about 100 office workers raised champagne glasses in a cafe in the middle of Tokyo's central business district to toast "Premium Friday," a new initiative to promote better work-life balance.
