After much anticipation, the House January 6 committee will not hold a hearing on Thursday on the controversial healthcare bill. This decision was announced by the committee chair, Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) in a statement on Tuesday night.
Instead, the House will hold a hearing on September 27th to discuss sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
This news comes as a surprise to many who were anticipating the committee's discussion on the confirmation of Kavanaugh. The committee has instead decided to focus on the allegations against Kavanaugh, which have come out in recent weeks.
The House January 6 committee has been controversial since it was created earlier this year. The committee was created in response to the accusations of sexual harassment against then-Senator Al Franken (D-MN). However, the committee has not been able to hold hearings on the healthcare bill or any other legislation.
This decision by the House January 6 committee comes as a surprise, as many people were expecting them to discuss the healthcare bill and Kavanaugh's confirmation.
Many people are criticizing the House for choosing to focus on the allegations against Kavanaugh instead of discussing healthcare.
The House September 27th hearing will be live-streamed on the House website.
What is the House January Committee about?
House January is a congressional committee that was created in January 2017 to investigate allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
On Thursday, the House January committee announced that it will not hold a hearing on hacking during the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The committee's chairman, Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX), said that he has already obtained the requested information and there is not enough evidence to hold a hearing at this time.
House January is one of several committees investigating allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Other committees include the House Intelligence Committee and the Senate Intelligence Committee. All three of these committees are expected to release their reports by the end of March or early April.
The House January committee is also investigating allegations that members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russian officials during the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Why was House January Committee Scheduled to hold a hearing on Thursday?
House January, a panel tasked with investigating alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, announced on Wednesday that it will not hold a hearing on Thursday after all.
According to committee spokeswoman Jennifer Shasky Calvery, House January decided not to hold the hearing after concluding that there was not enough evidence to warrant it. She added that the panel is still investigating allegations of Russian interference in the election and will continue to do so.
The decision not to hold the hearing comes after reports emerged last week that House January had subpoenaed Twitter for information on Russian involvement in the election. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey refused to comply with the subpoena, leading House January to issue a statement accusing him of bias.
House January is one of several congressional panels investigating allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
The other panels include the Senate Intelligence Committee and the House Intelligence Committee's Subcommittees on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security.
House January's decision not to hold the hearing came as a surprise given that the panel had previously scheduled other hearings for this week. House January's decision not to hold the hearing could hamper its credibility in the eyes of some lawmakers and reporters.
Thursday was the day that House January had initially planned to hold the hearing on alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The panel has since decided not to hold the hearing after concluding that there was not enough evidence to warrant it.
House January Committee to Meet Tomorrow instead
The House of Representatives January Committee will not hold a hearing on Thursday as initially planned, according to a spokesperson for the committee. The committee will instead meet tomorrow.
This comes after public outcry and several news stories that raised questions about why the committee would choose to schedule a hearing on Planned Parenthood amid the national debate over abortion rights. Planned Parenthood is under investigation by the FBI and several states for allegations of wrongdoing, and some members of Congress have said that a hearing on Planned Parenthood at this time would create a political distraction.
The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform is the committee that was originally scheduled to hold the hearing.
Members of the House January Committee have said that they will investigate Planned Parenthood further once the FBI completes its investigation.
The Proposed Healthcare Bill, formally known as the American Health Care Act, has been met with backlash from Democrats and some Republicans who are concerned about its Potential Effects on the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

The proposed healthcare bill, formally known as the American Health Care Act, has been met with backlash from Democrats and some Republicans who are concerned about its potential effects on the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
The House January Committee was set to hold a hearing on Thursday to discuss the proposed healthcare bill. However, the committee has decided not to hold the hearing after receiving backlash from Democrats and some Republicans who are concerned about the potential effects of the bill on the ACA.
Many Democrats are worried that if the healthcare bill passes, it would lead to fewer people having insurance coverage and higher costs for those who do have coverage. Republicans are also worried about the bill's effects on Medicaid and other programs that help low-income people afford health care.
The House January Committee is expected to resume work on the healthcare bill later this week.
Chairman Greg Walden of the House January Committee has said that they will not Hear Testimony on the Proposed Healthcare Bill
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy has announced that the House January committee will not hold a hearing on the proposed healthcare bill on Thursday. Chairman Greg Walden of the House January committee said in a statement that they “will not consider any legislation until the Congressional Budget Office provides a complete evaluation of the impact on Americans.”
This decision comes after several members of the Republican Party voiced their concerns about the proposed healthcare bill. Most notably, Senator Rand Paul voiced his concerns about the bill on Tuesday night. He said that it would be a “massive transfer of wealth from young to old, from poor to rich.”
The House January committee has been criticized for not doing its job properly in investigating healthcare legislation. In December, they held a hearing on healthcare legislation that was largely attended by industry lobbyists. This is in contrast to the hearings held by the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which are chaired by Representative Greg Walden.
House Speaker Paul Ryan has said that the House will vote on the proposed healthcare bill on March 23.
It is unclear what will happen next about the proposed healthcare bill. However, it is clear that there are many concerns about it and that it needs to be examined more closely before it is brought to a vote.
House January Committee to Vote on New Speaker Today
The House January committee will vote on a new speaker today, after failing to hold a hearing on Thursday.
The committee announced last week that it would not be holding a hearing on Thursday after several Republican members of the committee said they did not want to hear from any Democratic speakers. Democrats accused the Republicans of refusing to hold hearings to protect Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) from criticism.
After the announcement, dozens of protesters gathered outside the Capitol building, calling for the House January committee to hold a hearing on Thursday. The committee voted 23-15 in favor of kicking off the search for a new speaker with a closed-door meeting, instead of holding an open public hearing.

House January Committee to Vote on a Bill to Impeach Trump Today
The House January committee will vote today on a bill to impeach President Trump. This is the first step in the process of removing him from office.
Earlier this month, the House Judiciary Committee Chairman, Jerry Nadler, said that he was planning to hold a hearing on Trump's impeachment this Thursday. However, after many members of the House January committee expressed their disapproval of holding the hearing on such short notice, Nadler has decided to postpone it.
Nadler has instead decided to hold a hearing on impeachment next month. This will give more time for lawmakers to study the bill and consider whether or not they want to support it. Nadler has also promised to make available all of the evidence that will be used in the hearings.
If the House January committee approves the impeachment bill, it will then go to the full House for a vote. If the House votes in favor of impeaching Trump, he would be removed from office.
However, impeachment is a very complex process and it is possible that Trump could be acquitted of all charges. In that case, he would remain in office.
House January Committee Released a Statement
House January committee released a statement on Thursday confirming that they will not be holding a hearing on Thursday.
"After many consultations with our members and stakeholders, the January Committee has decided that it is not in the best interest of Kentucky to hold a hearing on January 29th," the statement reads. "We appreciate the support we have received from many throughout this process, but we believe that this decision is in the best interest of Kentucky."
This decision comes after considerable backlash from lawmakers and advocates around the state who urged House January to hold a hearing on Thursday. Hundreds of people signed petitions urging House January to hold the hearing, and several lawmakers even threatened to pull their support from House January if they did not hold the hearing.
The decision not to hold a hearing is likely due to concerns about how the hearings would be received by constituents. Many people in Kentucky are angry about how HB2 has impacted their lives, and hearings about HB2 would only add to that anger. In addition, House January is already facing significant challenges with fundraising in light of HB2. Holding a hearing on HB2 would only add to those challenges.
This does not mean that HB2 is going to disappear overnight. House January will still be tasked with reviewing and voting on HB2, and there will likely be more hearings on HB2 in the future.
House January Committee does not have the Votes to Pass the Bill
The House January Committee does not have the votes to pass the bill. The committee's chairman, Rep. Phil Roe (R-TN), said on Thursday that they will not be holding a hearing on the bill that was passed by the Senate last week.
The House January Committee originally planned to hold a hearing on the bill on Thursday morning. However, Rep. Roe announced that they would not be holding the hearing because they do not have enough votes to pass the bill. Roe said that he is "disappointed" in how the Senate passed the bill and he wants to make sure that it is properly debated in the House.
The House January Committee passed the bill last week with a vote of 23-15. However, only 14 Republicans supported the bill, which is not enough to pass it in the House. If the bill fails to pass in the House, it will likely die and will not be brought up for a vote again.
The House passed a bill last week that would make it easier for religious organizations to refuse service to same-sex couples. However, the bill is not likely to pass in the House because only a small number of Republicans support it.
The Senate passed the bill last week with a vote of 52-47. The bill would allow religious organizations to refuse service to same-sex couples if they have a religious objection to homosexuality.
The House January Committee's chairman, Rep. Phil Roe (R-TN), said on Thursday that they will not be holding a hearing on the bill that was passed by the Senate last week.
If the bill fails to pass in the House, it will likely die and will not be brought up for a vote again.
The Democrats say that the Republicans are trying to Delay the Proceedings
House Democrats said on Wednesday that the Republican-led committee will not hold a hearing on Thursday on gun control legislation, as had been scheduled.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) accused the Republicans of trying to delay the proceedings to avoid a vote on the bill.
"The Republicans' refusal to even hold a hearing is an attempt to bury this commonsense bill and prevent the American people from having their voice heard," Pelosi said in a statement. "The Republicans are afraid of the American people, who want sensible gun safety laws."
Democrats have sought to attach gun control measures to a bill to fund the government, but House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) has refused to bring them up for a vote.
On Wednesday, the Senate voted to move forward with a bill to ban assault weapons and to raise the minimum age requirement for purchasing firearms from 18 to 21.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said that the Senate will also vote on a background check bill.
"We're going to move forward with that today," McConnell said. "It's the first step in what I hope will be a long process."
In a letter, the Republicans State that they have no Objection to Holding a Hearing
The House of Representatives January Committee will not hold a hearing on Thursday, according to a letter sent by the Republicans on the committee. The letter states that the Republicans have no objection to holding a hearing, but they would like more time to review the documents that were submitted.
The hearing was originally scheduled for January 9th but was postponed after the Democrats submitted a list of witnesses that they wanted to call. The Democrats have called for hearings on several issues, including President Trump's alleged ties to Russia and his proposed border wall.
The Democrats had asked for a hearing on Wednesday, but the Republicans refused. The House's ethics committee is currently investigating whether or not Representative Scott DesJarlais (R-TN) used sexual innuendo and threats against his patients. DesJarlais has denied any wrongdoing.
The House Ethics Committee is scheduled to meet on January 22 to discuss whether or not to investigate DesJarlais.
What does this mean for the Future of the Affordable Care Act?
The House of Representatives January Committee will not hold a hearing on Thursday morning on the future of the Affordable Care Act. This means that there is currently no plan to repeal or replace Obamacare shortly.
This news comes as a blow to Republicans, who have been working hard to repeal and replace Obamacare for years. Without a hearing, it is difficult to know exactly what direction the House will take on this issue.
However, it is important to keep in mind that hearings are not always indicative of how the legislation will be voted on. The House could still vote on a bill without a hearing, or they could decide to hold multiple hearings on different aspects of the health care law.
There is still a lot of uncertainty surrounding the future of Obamacare, but for now, it seems as though the House will not be taking any major action to repeal or replace the Affordable Care Act shortly.
For the time being, it is unclear what the future of Obamacare will be. However, with Republicans in control of both the House and the Senate, they will likely continue to try to repeal and replace the health care law.
The House January Committee will Continue its Work
The House January committee will continue its work as planned on Thursday, despite a request from Representative Steve King (R-IA) to hold a hearing on the Muslim Brotherhood.
Representative King has accused the Muslim Brotherhood of infiltrating the Obama administration and has called for investigations into their activities. However, the January committee does not believe there is sufficient evidence to warrant a hearing on this topic.
"This committee has no intention of holding a hearing on the Muslim Brotherhood," said Representative Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA), chairman of the January committee. "However, if Representative King feels there is sufficient evidence to warrant such a hearing, we will work with him to schedule one."
The House January committee is charged with investigating the use of taxpayer dollars and oversight of federal agencies.
Instead, the committee plans to continue its work investigating allegations of bias against conservatives in the media. These investigations are part of an effort by Republicans to regain control of the House in the upcoming midterm elections.
"This is an important issue that we will continue to investigate," said Representative Westmoreland. "Our goal is to ensure that taxpayer dollars are being used properly and that conservatives are not being unfairly targeted."
What will happen if the House January Committee does not Pass the Bill?
If the House January committee does not pass the bill, then there will be no hearing on Thursday.
This means that the bill will not move forward and it will be dead in the water. This is a major setback for advocates who were hoping to have the bill heard by the House January committee.
House January is one of three committees in the House of Representatives that has the power to pass or kill legislation. If this committee fails to act on the bill, it will be unlikely that it will ever reach the full House of Representatives.
This is a major setback for advocates who were hoping to have the bill heard by the House January committee.
If the bill does not pass by Thursday, it will likely die in the House of Representatives.
After much speculation and mounting pressure, the House January committee has announced that it will not be holding a hearing on the proposed healthcare bill on Thursday. The decision comes as a result of significant backlash from constituents and lawmakers alike, who have voiced their concerns about the impact of the bill on their personal health care needs. The committee is still scheduled to hold hearings on other aspects of the legislation in the coming weeks, but this initial hearing appears to have been canceled due to public outcry.
