It's not every day that Senators Susan Collins and Mike Lee have the same opinion on policy, but the Congressional Budget Office estimate on the impact of the House Obamacare repeal and replacement bill made them feel the same way: Concerned.

It's not just them. Most GOP senators asked about the estimate that 24 million people will lose their coverage told reporters they're not finished reading the CBO report. But some had things to say, none of them good.

  • Lee: "I have some concerns with the bill. They have not been eliminated by the CBO report."
  • Collins: "The topline numbers are alarming on the loss of coverage."
  • Sen. Steve Daines: "Better is possible."
  • Sen. Ron Johnson: "Interesting, wasn't it?"

What to watch: What happens to the bill in the House. Unless leadership has some magic solution up their sleeves, this bill is very, very unlikely to pass in the Senate, despite the current plan to take the House-passed bill directly to the Senate floor (if and when the bill passes the House). It's even unclear how it will fare with moderates in the House, who don't come back into town until later this week.

Trump's 2 chilling debate warnings

One of the few groups in America with anything to celebrate after last night's loud, ugly, rowdy presidential "debate" was the violent, far-right Proud Boys, after President Trump pointedly refused to condemn white supremacist groups.

Why it matters: This was a for-the-history-books moment in a debate that was mostly headache-inducing noise. Trump failed to condemn racist groups after four months when millions marched for racial justice in the country's largest wave of activism in half a century.

Candidates go online to cut through debate noise

While President Trump and Joe Biden fought to be heard in a rowdy debate Tuesday, both campaigns sought to draw digital battle lines and occupy online turf they could have all to themselves.

The big picture: Trump's impulsive Twitter style made a shambles of the debate format, but online the candidates were able to find niches where they couldn't be interrupted — and could motivate their supporters to donate, organize and turn out to vote.

Royal Dutch Shell will shed up to 9,000 jobs as it undergoes a long-term restructuring around climate-friendly energy sources and continues to grapple with the coronavirus pandemic that has battered the oil industry.

Why it matters: The cuts could amount to over 10% of the company's global workforce, which was 83,000 at the end of 2019.
