Peter Hodge’s two daughters fight cystic fibrosis daily, their medications, doctor visits and hospitalizations costing about $1 million in health care benefits a year.

Hodge worries that his older daughter could end up on a newly defined Medicaid, with spending and other limits determined by the states. His younger daughter could face lifetime caps on the amount his insurance plan would pay for her treatment. "People with cystic fibrosis and their families are terrified, absolutely terrified," said Hodge, who works in technology in South Florida.
British security forces raided an apartment building Wednesday in central Manchester as they investigated "a network" of people allegedly behind the city's concert bombing. Hundreds of soldiers were sent to secure key sites across the country, including Buckingham Palace and the British Parliament at Westminster. And the father and brother of suspected bomber Salman Abedi were arrested in Libya, officials in that country said. Another brother of the bomber was arrested in England.
