Good morning … and happy birthday to us! Vitals launched one year ago today. Thanks so much for coming along on this ride with us, and here’s to year two!

Correction: Yesterday’s Vitals misstated the Congressional Budget Office’s latest cost estimates for renewing the Children’s Health Insurance Program. An extension would cost roughly $800 million, not $800 billion. Big difference. I apologize for the error.

What we’re watching today: Azar.

Also, the HELP Committee holds a hearing on the opioid epidemic. (10 am; livestream).

Kentucky men’s basketball vs. Texas A&M (7pm, ESPN).

How should we celebrate our one-year anniversary? Don’t say karaoke. I hate karaoke. Send your other ideas to me at
