Health and Human Services secretary Tom Price set a high bar for Trumpcare this morning, predicting on NBC's "Meet the Press" that it will cover more people than Obamacare regardless of what the Congressional Budget Office predicts. When asked by moderator Chuck Todd how he'd define success, Price declined to set an exact coverage goal — but he said success "means more people covered than are covered right now, and at an average cost that is less. And I believe we can firmly do that with the plan that we've laid out there."

Why it matters: Nearly everyone expects that the CBO estimates, which could come out this week, will project that millions of people could lose health coverage under the GOP replacement plan. Like other Republicans, Price is already laying the groundwork to reject that prediction by undermining CBO's credibility, noting that its original estimates for health coverage gains under Obamacare were too high.

Chief Justice John Roberts was hospitalized overnight after a fall on June 21, a Supreme Court spokesperson confirmed to the Washington Post on Tuesday.

Why it matters: Speculation regarding justices' health — given their lifetime appointments — always runs rampant, and this incident may have not been made public if the Post hadn't "received a tip."

The CEOs of tech's four leading giants will defend their industry's growing concentration of power from critics on both right and left who view them as monopolists when they testify, most likely virtually, before Congress on July 27.

Why it matters: The joint appearance by Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, Apple's Tim Cook, Amazon's Jeff Bezos and Google's Sundar Pichai will mark a historic collision between the leaders of an industry that has changed the world and political leaders who believe those changes have harmed democracy and individual rights.
