Get ready for lots of Obamacare talk at GOP retreat

Can't decide how to repeal and replace Obamacare? Not to worry! That's what the Republican retreat is for. They'll be in Philadelphia today through Friday, and House Speaker Paul Ryan has already said there will be lots of Obamacare talk as GOP leaders try to get their members on the same page, or something close to it. Caitlin Owens will be there [follow her on Twitter], and if there are actual decisions, she'll tell us.

Meantime, House and Senate GOP leaders met Tuesday to get their own act together pre-retreat, and Senate HELP Committee chairman Lamar Alexander said Republicans are "accelerating the replacement part of the package." Read Caitlin's story about the meeting. While in Philadelphia, they'll be treated to a barrage of scolding digital ads from the pro-Obamacare group Save Your Care, plus a protest on Thursday.
