A unit of Brookfield Asset Management foreclosed on a $60 million mezzanine loan after owners of the former music industry mecca [The Brill Building] failed to make a $5.6 million payment in November. The owners -- including Allied Partners, Brickman & Associates, Israeli pension fund Halman-Aldubi and New York's Conway Capital -- got steamrolled by the weak retail leasing market. They'd hoped to cash in, or out, on the 180,000-square-foot landmark's 40,000 square feet of store space. But a possible deal with Jimmy Buffett's theme restaurant, Margaritaville, fell through.''

To vote, or not to vote, that is the only question on the minds of Trump's White House and House Republicans this morning.  If everything proceeds as planned, the Obamacare vote is currently scheduled for 7pm tonight.  That said, the further we press into today without confirmation that Republicans have narrowed the opposition votes from their own party down to 22 or less (as of last night the estimate was 25-30) the more unlikely the vote is to proceed.  As we pointed out

A heavyset man sits on a gurney pushed to the side of a hallway in the emergency room at Jefferson Health in Philadelphia. It’s not even 9 a.m, and already beds are filling up. CEO Dr. Stephen Klasko guides me to a fancy-looking IV pump. It can replace nearly half of someone’s blood after they got shot, stabbed or hurt in a car accident. “In the old days, we would lose patients because we weren’t able to get that volume in quickly enough,” he said. “The difference between three minutes or seven minutes could be life and death.” RELATED: House Republicans look for more support with revised health care bill Who wins and loses under the GOP's health care proposal? Health care takes on the fight against trafficking Klasko is showing me around to make a simple point: It takes money to buy powerful equipment. And the bill to repeal Obamacare being voted on tonight in Congress threatens his revenue stream. Klasko estimates the legislation would move about 3 percent of his patients from the insured column to uninsured, which could cut annual revenue by $50 million to $100 million. “There are consequences to these types of policies,” said Rick Pollack, president and CEO of the American Hospital Association. The AHA launched a media campaign against the bill and brought dozens of hospital leaders to lobby members of Congress. The real danger, Pollack said, is that the hospital would have to absorb the cost of care for the uninsured patients. So as executives have made their case to lawmakers, one message they carry is that hospitals are businesses. Pollack said if hospitals lose paying patients, they will have to consider drastic steps. “There could be hospital closures. There could be certain services shut down. There could be staff reductions,” he said. The typical U.S. hospital already has operating margins in the red, said UCLA Law professor Jill Horwitz. We’ve heard about how hospitals may pass any debt from caring for uninsured patients by negotiating higher prices with insurers. But Horwitz said if this legislation passes, hospitals may also look to conduct unnecessary tests and procedures on insured patients as a way to increase revenue. “It’s important not to say they are rapacious doctors and horrible hospitals, and they are trying to squeeze every last dollar out of you,” she said. “But it would be silly to think that hospitals and doctors don’t respond to those incentives. They have to.” That’s the kind of move lots of Americans could see as more people enroll in high-deductible insurance plans. Bottom line, Horwitz said, if hospitals take it on the chin, everybody is going to feel it, insured and uninsured alike.
