FROM THIS EPISODE

Donald Trump has promised repeal of President Obama’s major achievement: the Affordable Care Act. Now even Obama is proposing a major change—the “public option” pushed by Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. Would that save Obamacare? Would it have a chance of passing the House and the Senate?

Also, Roger Ailes has made Fox the biggest player in Cable TV News, but the 76-year old has been hit with a growing number of sexual harassment accusations. Are they a threat to the network’s credibility just as the GOP convention gets under way?
