House and Senate Republicans are wrapping up their joint retreat in Hershey, Pennsylvania, to plan for the new session. These getaways happen every year, but it's the first time in a decade that the House and the Senate have gone away together to work on strategy.

NPR’s Juana Summers is in Hershey covering the retreat and talks with Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson about what Republicans from both chambers were able to agree on, and what still separates moderate Republicans from more conservative members.

Health care, the budget and immigration still spark debate within the party’s ranks.
