Good morning … Sen. John McCain is headed back to Washington, putting Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in a much better position to at least open the gates on a wild, unpredictable vote-a-rama.
You should always stay tuned to Axios' health care stream, but today especially. If past is prologue, this story is going to change dramatically, oh, maybe 10,000 times, give or take, before the sun sets.
What we're watching today: The Senate votes to start the health care debate. Or not. Also, HCA earnings call, 10 a.m. Eastern.
What we're watching this week: Senate Aging Committee hearing on progress toward a cure for Type 1 diabetes, Wednesday. House Energy and Commerce health subcommittee hearing on Medicare Advantage Special Needs Plans, Wednesday.
Lots more earnings calls: Anthem, Wednesday before markets open; Gilead Sciences, Wednesday after markets close; Zimmer Biomet, Thursday before markets open. And Biogen and Alexion Pharmaceuticals will have "strategic updates" in addition to earnings.
