Morning, all. The Obamacare town halls are something Republicans really should be more scared about, especially since the Freedom Caucus is making it harder for them to come up with a replacement plan. Also: new documents give a pretty good look at insurers' Obamacare wish list, and we have a brand-new Department of Veterans Affairs leader for everyone to yell at.

What we're watching today: Vice President Mike Pence and House Speaker Paul Ryan talk to Senate Republicans at their weekly lunch.

What we're watching this week: National health spending report, Wednesday; Senate Finance Committee confirmation hearing for Seema Verma, Thursday; the release of the HHS rule to stabilize the Obamacare markets, date unknown.

Finished! Hit me up with suggestions and tips: david@axios.com.
