Senate Republicans Thursday released a new version of their health care bill, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he wants to hold a vote next week. But it's unclear at this point whether the revised bill will appease enough of the Republican Senators — some conservative, some moderate — who opposed the previous version. Republicans can only afford to lose two votes.

Here & Now's Robin Young talks to Sarah Kliff (@sarahkliff), health policy reporter for Vox and co-host of the podcast "The Weeds," about what's in the new bill, and how the politics are playing out.

This segment aired on July 13, 2017.
