The Republican healthcare bill lives another day

Republicans in the House voted to repeal and replace Obamacare on Thursday. Now it's on to the Senate, where the plan is expected to be significantly altered. Who's happy? "It's a compromise that is unsatisfying to everybody," Rich Lowry said. "If this is what legislating looks like, then we're all in a lot of trouble," Jill Filipovic said. "The whole exercise is colossally cynical and we could do better if we worked together," former Representative Jane Harman said. President Trump will take his first international trip as president later this month to Israel, Saudi Arabia and Europe. Josh Barro and Jane Harman are cautiously optimistic about the trip. Are you?
