What's next if the Senate health bill fails

We know — the Republican health care effort has been declared dead many times, so this is not a prediction. There's still a lot of motion, and we could see a revised Senate bill on Thursday and a vote next week. But it's time to at least consider what happens if Senate Republicans can't pass a health care bill.

The bottom line: The health care storyline won't end. It will be like a season finale — with the next season beginning the next day.
