It's now or never for a divided Republican Party The White House says President Trump will "watch and take names" as House Speaker Paul Ryan tries to unite the GOP to "repeal and replace" Obamacare. Meantime, polls show more than half the public's opposed to adding some 24 million people to the ranks of the uninsured. The House is scheduled to vote later today, and we look at the consequences one way or the other. Will the President blame the Speaker if the bill fails? If it passes the House, what's its chance in the Senate? There's a lot at stake — including the health of America's healthcare system.
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
Will the Senate write a healthcare bill in secret? While Democrats and Republicans argue White House relations with Russia, another question is being decided behind closed doors: who gets help buying health insurance and who doesn't? We hear how the pros and cons are being shrouded in secrecy.
