GOP bidding begins for Zika babies, nursing home, disableds' care

Catalogue auctions go "live" online or by phone as the bidding deadline approaches, but GOP Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell

gets to run a 'life' auction among his caucus to barter life-affirming medical care for the poor and disabled so that he and someone else have a personal triumph, as The Washington Post online headline framed it:
Both hungry for a win, Trump and McConnell are being tested by the health-care bill
GOP senators: what's your price? Or the value of other 
people's lives - - to get that 'win.'
White House and Capitol Hill officials are exploring potential deals to divvy up billions of dollars to individual senators’ priorities in a wide-ranging bid to secure votes for the imperiled GOP health care bill.
