Julie Rovner, the chief Washington correspondent for Kaiser Health News, talks with Robin Young of WBUR’s Here and Now about the Senate Finance Committee’s hearing on the nomination of Rep. Tom Price to head the Department of Health and Human Services. Rovner notes that despite some withering criticism from Democrats about his stock trades and questions about Price’s plans for the health law, Republicans appear to be solidly supporting Price. She also talks about President Donald Trump’s recent executive order on the health law, concerns about the Republican plans to change Medicaid and the upcoming GOP retreat.
