Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price attended a lunch with Republican senators on Wednesday. Unsurprisingly, Price and the rest of the GOP still have a ways to go on Obamacare repeal, despite his recent confirmation. Here's what we learned from members who attended:

  • President Trump may have said a replacement plan is coming as soon as Price got confirmed, but that wasn't to be taken literally. "I didn't see any plan," Sen.

  • Look for more action beyond today's rule. Potential topics: essential health benefits and ways to encourage continuity of coverage.
  • Price explained today's rule and why it included what it did. One reason he included those provisions versus some of the more controversial ones? "No risk of a legal challenge," Sen. Rob Portman told reporters.
