"I still stand for repeal of ACA as a Republican. But we can't turn our backs on millions of Americans that could be hurt."

After the latest GOP attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act failed in the Senate last month, President Trump told a group of reporters that letting Obamacare fail would force Congress to come together to find a fix. Reps. Tom Reed (R-N.Y. 23) and Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J. 5) say that doesn't have to be the case. The co-chairs of the Problem Solvers Caucus, a bipartisan congressional bloc, wrote a New York Times op-ed detailing the work the caucus is doing to incrementally fix the major problems in our health care system. Congressman Reed joins Rick Ungar and guest host Rick Tyler to discuss some of the bill's main points and the initial reception it received in the Senate. Dr. Anthony Cordesman of the Center for Strategic and International Studies talks about the Trump administration's struggles to formulate a new military strategy on Afghanistan.
