WASHINGTON (AP) — Arizona Sen. John McCain cast a crucial vote in the Republican effort to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, then delivered an impassioned speech pleading for Republicans and Democrats to work together.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate has blocked a wide-ranging proposal by Republicans to repeal much of former President Barack Obama's health care law and replace it with a more restrictive plan. Senators voted 57-43 late Tuesday to reject the plan in the first vote on an amendment to the bill. Those voting "no" included nine defecting Republicans. The vote underscored problems Republicans will have in winning enough votes to recast Obama's statute.

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — The most senior Vatican official ever charged in the Catholic Church sex abuse crisis made his first court appearance in a scandal that has stunned the Holy See and threatened to tarnish the pope's image as a crusader against abusive clergy. Cardinal George Pell, Australia's highest-ranking Catholic and Pope Francis' top financial adviser, has maintained his innocence since he was charged last month with sexually abusing multiple people years ago.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says he is working with a pair of Republican senators to "create a new immigration system for America."

At a campaign-style rally Tuesday in Ohio, he said, "We want a merit-based system, one that protects our workers" and one that "protects our economy."

WASHINGTON (AP) — A person familiar with negotiations between the Senate Judiciary Committee and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort says the panel has dropped a subpoena that sought to compel his public testimony this week. The person says Manafort won't testify during a public hearing Wednesday after he and the committee reached an agreement to continue negotiating the terms of his cooperation. The person demanded anonymity to discuss the private negotiations.
