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.

Rep. Lou Correa (D-Calif.) announced on Saturday that he has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Why it matters: Correa is the latest Democratic lawmaker to share his positive test results after last week's deadly Capitol riot. Correa did not shelter in the designated safe zone with his congressional colleagues during the siege, per a spokesperson, instead staying outside to help Capitol Police.

The FBI arrested far-right media figure Tim Gionet, known as "Baked Alaska," on Saturday for his involvement in last week's Capitol riot, according to a statement of facts filed in the U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia.

The state of play: Gionet was arrested in Houston on charges related to disorderly or disruptive conduct on the Capitol grounds or in any of the Capitol buildings with the intent to impede, disrupt, or disturb the orderly conduct of a session, per AP.
