Late Breaker: Health Reform Legislation to Arrive on Senate Floor

US Senator Mitch McConnell has just announced that he will bring health reform legislation to the Senate floor for a vote next week. What is actually proposed in this bill, which is designed to replace the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and has been crafted largely out of public view? And what does it mean for health care? Three top health reporters - Margot Sanger-Katz (New York Times), Julie Rovner (Kaiser Health News), and Joanne Kenen (Politico) - deliver late-breaking news about what is happening behind the scenes, and what comes next. Enjoy a glass of beer or wine while the insiders talk.
