Good morning. The tax credits in the GOP's Obamacare replacement plan probably aren't going away, but there's growing talk that Republicans might means-test them, which would be a pretty big change. In the meantime, conservatives are softening their line against the tax credits, and Seema Verma is going to get a do-over on her Senate Finance Committee vote.
What we're watching today: Vice President Mike Pence and Health and Human Services secretary Tom Price discuss Obamacare repeal in Cincinnati; Seema Verma vote, Take 2, around 10 am Eastern; House Energy and Commerce health subcommittee hearing on reauthorizing the Food and Drug Administration's generic drug and biosimilar user fee programs, 10 a.m. Livestream here.
What we're watching this week: MedPAC discusses Medicare premium support, Friday.
