Good morning ... Health care bill is put on hold, rewritten, steered to the right, and reintroduced. Moderates will be blamed if the bill goes down. Where have we seen this before?
For a fun way to follow all this, be sure to check the latest "Axios Sourced" video, featuring our own Caitlin Owens. She took a few minutes yesterday to walk through the policy, the politics, and the behind-the-scenes madness of covering this process.
One goof: In yesterday's Vitals, we quoted a statement from Dan Hilferty, CEO of Independence Blue Cross, that we said was from this week. It was actually from June 27.
What we're watching next week: CBO score of most of the new bill, though probably not the Cruz provision. Expected Monday. And then the motion to take up the bill — which could end the whole effort if it doesn't succeed. Likely Tuesday.
Also, UnitedHealth Group and Johnson & Johnson kick off second-quarter earnings season, Tuesday, July 18. House Energy and Commerce oversight subcommittee hearing on the 340B drug discount program, Tuesday, July 18.
