Confirmation Hearing for Rep. Michael R. Pompeo (R - KS), Nominee for Director of Central Intelligence Agency

When: UPDATED - now confirmed as Thursday 12 January from 10:00am Wednesday 11 January from 10:00am

Note: The senate.gov list of upcoming hearings (which has fallen over around half the times I've tried to access it...) has this down for 10:00am on Thursday 12 January, but the press release from the committee, linked above, which seems to be only information about the hearing on the committee's own website, says Wednesday 11 January.

Committee Members, what the committee should be concerned about and calling script )

Please use the comments to suggest more reasons why the committee should reject the nomination and to suggest amendments to the calling script.

Nomination Hearing - Elaine Chao

When: Wednesday 11 January from 10:15am

Committee Members and what the committee should be concerned about )

Suggested action: Given the Democrats don't seem inclined to oppose this nomination -- she seems like a pick that would be "normal" in any other Republican cabinet -- it's probably not worth calling about this one. But please let us know in comments if there are strong reasons the committee should reject the nomination.

Housekeeping note: This is the last of the confirmation hearings scheduled for Wednesday 11 January. I'll be back later with posts on the hearings scheduled for Thursday 12 January.

This is from the Center for Medicare Advocacy:

For example, the Affordable Care Act expanded access to Medicaid in 31 states and the District of Columbia, reduced beneficiary out-of-pocket costs for Medicare Part D drugs, added many no-cost Medicare preventive benefits, and extended Medicare solvency by approximately 10 years. Thus, a vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act would impact access and coverage for health care in Medicare and Medicaid, as well as for people directly covered through ACA.
