Watch: The House Approved H.R. 3, The Pelosi Drug Bill. What Does That Mean?

KHN correspondent Emmarie Huetteman appeared on PBS NewsHour to discuss efforts on Capitol Hill to curb the cost of prescription drugs.

On Thursday, the House approved H.R. 3, the measure introduced by Speaker Nancy Pelosi. But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has signaled that he will not bring that bill to the floor.
