Episode 28: The Process

June 26th, 2017

This week, we break down the politics and policy of the Senate GOP's health care plan: how it differs from the House version, what it will take for skeptical senators to get to "yes," and whether leadership will hold a vote before the July 4 recess.

We break down the results of the special election in Georgia's Sixth Congressional District, and what they mean for control of the House of Representatives.

We discuss the next steps in the Russia investigations, the White House's slow pace for putting forth nominees at top federal agency posts, and the Senate GOP divide on health care.
