Good morning ... The Senate is barreling toward a big, party-line health care vote, even as a special election for a once-safe seat has turned into a referendum on that health care plan. Welcome to the latest and decidedly least fun "Back to the Future" sequel.
What we're watching today: Did we mention the Georgia congressional special election is today? Also, the Senate Appropriations agriculture subcommittee holds a hearing on the FDA budget, 10:30 a.m. Eastern (unless Senate Democrats shut it down with their procedural protests). Livestream here.
What we're watching this week: The insurer filing deadline to provide ACA marketplace coverage, Wednesday. Also, Biotechnology Innovation Organization annual convention in San Diego, today through Thursday. Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearings on the VA budget, Wednesday, and the NIH budget, Thursday. Mylan annual shareholder meeting, Thursday.
