Congress must shore up insurance markets if Obamacare repeal fails

Congress must shore up insurance markets if Obamacare repeal fails

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said on Thursday that Congress must act to shore up private health insurance markets if it fails to repeal Obamacare, comments seen as providing a pathway to a bipartisan deal to fix the health system. Speaking at a luncheon in his home state of Kentucky, McConnell said: “If my side is unable to agree on an adequate replacement, then some kind of action with regard to the private health insurance market must occur,” the Associated Press reported. “No action is not an alternative,” McConnell was quoted as saying. “We’ve got...

Japan issues false alarm over missile launch, days after Hawaii alert gaffe

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese public broadcaster NHK issued a false alarm on Tuesday saying North Korea appeared to have launched a missile and urging people to take shelter, but it managed to correct the error within minutes. The mistake took place at a tense time in the region following North Korea’s largest nuclear test to date in September and its claim in November that it had successfully tested a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile that could reach all of the U.S. mainland. Pyongyang regularly threatens to destroy Japan and the United States. But there were no immediate...

U.S. destroyers sail in disputed South China Sea amid trade tensions

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two U.S. warships sailed near islands claimed by China in the South China Sea on Monday, a U.S. official told Reuters, a move likely to anger Beijing at a time of tense relations between the world’s two biggest economies.

United States SAN JUAN (Reuters) - A U.S. Appeals Court ruled on Friday that members of Puerto Rico’s federally created oversight board were unconstitutionally appointed but declined to dismiss the bankruptcy cases the board filed for the U.S. commonwealth. The ruling allows the island’s 2017 federal court cases seeking to restructure about $120 billion of debt and pension obligations to continue and leaves court-approved restructuring deals in place. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit set a 90-day period to allow President Donald Trump and the U.S. Senate to constitutionally...

U.S. factory output drops, autos fall the most since recession
