It should be an anti-climactic day. No Senate confirmation hearings, and the House is expected to take up the Senate's budget resolution. If the House doesn't vote today, it could be tomorrow, per House deputy whip Dennis Ross. But it's coming eventually.

As noted yesterday, House leadership is working to get lawmakers on board with as many repeal promises as possible without triggering the Byrd Rule. Those won't matter for the budget resolution, but they will once the reconciliation process gets rolling.

Clues from Paul Ryan's CNN town hall on what Republicans will do once it goes to committees, via Axios Vitals:

  • State high-risk pools — not coverage for people who keep themselves insured — as the main way Republicans want to cover pre-existing conditions after Obamacare.
  • Tax credits to buy "a plan of their choosing" and more flexible benefits.

Watching: There's some drama over Rep. Jason Chaffetz threatening to subpoena the head of the Government Office of Ethics. We'll see if that goes anywhere. No comments yet from House leadership.

Primary elections are being held on Tuesday in Minnesota, Georgia, Connecticut, Vermont and Wisconsin.

The big picture: Georgia and Wisconsin both struggled to hold primaries during the coronavirus pandemic, but are doing so again — testing their voting systems ahead of the general election. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) is facing a strong challenger as she fights for her political career. In Georgia, a Republican primary runoff pits a QAnon supporter against a hardline conservative.

The U.S. government has agreed to buy 100 million doses of Moderna's experimental coronavirus vaccine for $1.5 billion, or $15 per dose.

Why it matters: The Trump administration, through Operation Warp Speed, has now bought initial batches of vaccines from Moderna, GlaxoSmithKline and Sanofi, Pfizer, Novavax, Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca before knowing whether they are safe and effective. The federal government also appears to own some of the patent rights associated with Moderna's vaccine.
