Hillary Clinton is poised to become the first woman president of the United States, but there are still plenty of big issues to deal with that could keep her busy during her first six weeks in office.
Here are a few of the big ones to keep an eye on:Health care:The Senate approved a bill to overhaul the nation’s health care system, a measure that could bring significant changes to the American health care landscape and put President Donald Trump’s signature health care legislation in jeopardy.
The Senate bill, called the American Health Care Act, was passed by the House in a 229-201 vote.
It would create a single health insurance market in the country that would include plans that cover people with pre-existing conditions, as well as provide subsidies to lower-income people to buy into those plans.
The House is expected to vote on the bill this week.
Senate Republicans have already indicated they will not allow the Senate bill to move to the floor for a vote because they are concerned that Democrats will block any attempts to replace it.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has vowed to continue to work with the House on the measure.
Democrats have already vowed to fight the bill in the Senate if it reaches the floor.
They say that while it is a significant step in the right direction, the bill is still far from being completed.
“The American Health Act is a big step forward but it still needs to be fully funded,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told reporters.
“It still needs more Republican votes to move forward.”
The House bill would not allow for insurers to charge higher premiums to sick people.
The Senate bill would.
The President also took some heat for not releasing a budget, which is expected for the second week in a row.
The budget is expected Thursday.
In addition to the budget, there is another bill currently in the House that will provide billions in tax relief for businesses and the middle class.
This is the House’s version of the American Opportunity Tax Credit.
President Trump has said he will not sign the bill, but he has vowed that he will continue to support the bill.
“I am going to sign that bill,” he said last week.
Democrats in the chamber have vowed to keep the bill on the Senate floor.
“This is the most important tax relief package ever passed in the history of the nation,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D, Calif.) said.
“We are not going to let it go.”
The Senate is expected vote on both bills next week.
