Chuck Kennedy

This morning, Axios' Mike Allen hosted a conversation on the future of health care policy. He was joined on stage by three influential voices in the ongoing health care debate.

  • T.H. Lamar Alexander, U.S. Senator of Tennessee, Chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee
  • T.H. Bill Cassidy, U.S. Senator of Louisiana, Member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee
  • T.H. Tim Kaine, U.S. Senator of Virginia, Member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee

Why it matters: Senator Alexander announced his and Senator Patty Murray's bi-partisan short-term health care deal yesterday, which the President and Republicans have sent mixed signals about.

Grand jury proceedings in the case of Breonna Taylor, an unarmed Black woman fatally shot by police, will be released on Wednesday, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron confirmed to news outlets.

Driving the news: Cameron's announcement late Monday came hours after a judge granted an unnamed juror's court motion seeking the release of last week's transcripts and related recordings.

Bob Woodward: "I was not going to hide" my opinion on Trump

Bob Woodward didn't want to join Senate Republicans in privately condemning President Trump but declining to do so publicly, he told Jonathan Swan in an interview for "Axios on HBO."

Why it matters: Woodward has covered 9 presidents, but Trump is the first that Woodward explicitly described as "the wrong man for the job."
