The Senate voted down the Republican effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act 51-49 in a dramatic vote that saw Sen. John McCain going against his party's leadership. Meanwhile, infighting among White House officials escalated, as the Administration’s newly minted communications chief Anthony Scaramucci called Chief of Staff Reince Priebus “a paranoid schizophrenic” in an epithet-laced rant to a reporter for the New Yorker.
