Good morning ... Gotta be honest, this pre-existing conditions argument isn't working out that well for Republicans, and we're not seeing the signs of a comeback before the House leaves for recess tomorrow. Remember when repeal votes were easy because they didn't matter?

What we're watching today: Vice President Mike Pence speaks at the Susan B. Anthony List's Campaign for Life Gala, 7:30 p.m. Eastern.

What we're watching this week: House Republican Conference meeting, Thursday.

What we're watching next week: FBI director James Comey gives keynote address on health care cyberthreats at the American Hospital Association annual membership meeting, Monday, May 8; Senate Finance Committee hearing on reauthorization of the Children's Health Insurance Program, Tuesday, May 9; Senate HELP Committee marks up FDA user fees reauthorization bill, Wednesday, May 10 (tentative).

Tips and feedback always welcome:
