Insulin amendments to the bill: (compiled from various tweets and articles)
Senate voted on Kennedy's amendment – he said he will "re-implement a rule Biden repealed to make insulin available at community health care centers." Would pay for it by redirecting money away from Obamacare.
Murray said Rs should support the insulin price cap instead.
(This Kennedy amendment was essentially a bid to show Republican support for addressing the cost of insulin, though Democrats will oppose it as insufficient. It came right before Republicans were expected to strip out the Democratic-authored insulin proposal in the bill for violating Senate rules fir budge reconciliation.)
Kennedy amendment did not pass.
Republicans challenged the $35 cap on insulin prices for the private marketplace, as a violation of the strict budget rules governing passage of this bill.
The $35 cap on insulin prices for private insurers is officially out of the bill.

Senate Finance chair @RonWyden gives out this statement:

And all were gone not long after Moonves became fully ascendant at CBS. (Though I'm not counting The Nanny.) Yes, Moonves was looking for success. He also had a clear focus on undoing a female-centric image at the network.
i'm not going to rehash the entire discussion many of us had about CBS history while I'm recovering from COVID, lol. You can look it up yourself in that thread. It's not hard to search those names in there.
The hair definitely 'elevates' this to Big Fat Gypsy Wedding levels. Tiara? You are too modest. It's a motherfucking steelworks up in that birds nest.
We knew it would be blingy. We knew it would be Baroque. Teresa lives to overshadow other people. This event is probably the biggest thing northern New Jersey has seen in a LONG time. But the whole thing also looks like it might be a lot of fun to attend? And she definitely understands the assignment in terms of leaking a few insane pics and inviting all these RHs who are going to leak too. This is wonderful marketing for the next season of NJ plus the wedding special.
I wonder if the special will show if Ramona was uninvited, and why Dina refused to attend.
