Good morning ... Today, James Comey and his Democratic inquisitors will try desperately, somehow, some way, to break into the news cycle despite all the exciting goings-on in health policy. We'll see if they can find a way.
We kid, but Republicans are still writing a bill to remake the U.S. health care system, and their plans are slowly coming into focus ahead of another scheduled meeting today to work through more of the details.
What we're watching today: Health and Human Services secretary Tom Price testifies on the HHS budget proposal before Senate Finance Committee, 9:45 a.m. Eastern (livestream here), and House Ways and Means Committee, 1 p.m. Eastern (livestream here).
What we're watching this week: The investment bank Jefferies holds its global health care conference in New York City through Friday.
What we're watching next week: Senate HELP Committee holds hearing on how the prescription drug delivery system affects drug prices, June 13. Senate Committee on Indian Affairs hearing on legislation to help employee recruitment and retention at the Indian Health Service, June 13.
