Enlarge (credit: Christiaan Colen ) In early 2015, architects of Google's Android mobile operating system introduced a new feature that was intended to curtail the real-time tracking of smartphones as their users traversed retail stores , city streets , and just about anywhere else . A recently published research paper found that the measure remains missing on the vast majority of Android phones and is easily defeated on the relatively small number of devices that do support it. Like all Wi-Fi-enabled devices, smartphones are constantly scanning their surroundings for available access points, and with each probe, they send a MACshort for media access controladdress associated with the handset. Throughout most of the history of Wi-Fi, the free exchange of MAC addresses didn't pose much threat to privacy. That all changed with the advent of mobile computing.

people safe. It was also an attempted violent cowardly attack on our freedom, by mowing down people who were just walking along a bridge. As our hearts go out to them, would she agree that that attack on freedom also fails, not just because of communities' resilience and determination, but also perhaps because of the unique partnership we have in this country.

Still, he said of the repeal bill, “If it were a Medicaid reform bill — and only a Medicaid reform bill, it would be decent to good ... I’d probably give it a solid C.” He opposes it now, however, because it preserves far too much Obamacare for his taste — and moves too slowly to roll back the health law’s Medicaid expansion. Although a block of conservatives can — and might — stop passage of the repeal bill, most House Republicans do back it. The nearly $1 trillion cut in federal spending — it will probably be more than $880 billion once the CBO takes last-minute bill changes into account — is a big reason. But if this bill fails because of the Obamacare repeal, another chance to revamp Medicaid might not come along soon since this is part of a fast-track budget reconciliation measure that needs only 51 votes to pass the Senate. Most measures would need 60 votes to break a Democratic filibuster.

We have a history of following up and holding politicians accountable, but we will also be there to support and thank the champions who stand strong and keep their promise. The Koch groups argue that the GOP's bills refundable tax credits to make health coverage more affordable are a new entitlement, that the legislation doesn't go far enough to repeal insurance mandates or the so-called Cadillac tax on high-end employer-sponsored health plans, and that it fails to repeal Medicaid expansion quickly enough.

Conservative holdouts won't bend on repeal bill . More than two dozen House Freedom Caucus members remain opposed to the Obamacare repeal bill, according to a spokeswoman for the group. With all House Democrats expected to vote against the plan, it would take 22 Republican no votes to sink it. The announcement came despite direct appeals from President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and House Republican leaders. Asked if he has the votes to pass the bill, House Speaker Paul Ryan replied, I don't think anybody knows the answer to that. ... We are getting a lot of Freedom Caucus members to support this. ... We're adding votes by the day. We're not losing votes, we're adding votes. Spicer says no Plan B if House bill fails. White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Wednesday expressed confidence that the House will approve Obamacare repeal and suggested there are no alternatives if the bill fails.

The vote on the Republican health care bill is a defining moment for House Speaker Paul Ryan that could boost his aggressive agenda to overhaul the tax code and remake the federal government. Or send it off the rails. If he fails? "It will be very hard to manage this," the Wisconsin Republican told reporters ahead of Thursday's likely vote. The bill to repeal major parts of Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act, cap future funding for Medicaid and reverse tax increases on the wealthy is the kind of high-impact legislation that has become rare in a Congress that sometimes struggles with the routine like keeping the government open. Highlighting the urgency of passing the bill, President Donald Trump spent some of his own political capital Tuesday when he visited Capitol Hill to urge House Republicans to vote for it. Trump warned GOP lawmakers that they could lose their majorities in the House and Senate in the 2018 midterm elections if they renege on promises to repeal and replace Obama's signature health law.
