Senate Republicans Open Fight Over Obama Health Law
By THOMAS KAPLAN and GLENN THRUSHJAN. 4, 2017

WASHINGTON — Congress opened for battle over the Affordable Care Act on Wednesday as Republicans pushed immediately forward to repeal the health care law and President Obama made a rare trip to Capitol Hill to defend it.
