Good morning ... Hope you had a restful weekend, 'cause you're gonna need it. Insurers are filing their rates, Republicans are trying to finish their bill, Democrats are planning to pull out all the stops, resistance-wise, and oh yeah, the most expensive House race in history finally gets resolved on Tuesday. Take a deep breath and buy an extra coffee pot.
What we're watching this week: The insurer filing deadline on Wednesday, of course — plus any new leaks about what might actually be in the Senate bill.
Also, Biotechnology Innovation Organization annual convention in San Diego, today through Thursday. Mylan annual shareholder meeting, Thursday. The Senate Appropriations Committee will hold subcommittee hearings this week on the budget requests for the FDA, the NIH, and the VA. And the runoff in the Georgia's 6th — Tom Price's old district — is Tuesday.
