In hour two of Here & Now's March 27, 2017 full broadcast, health care coverage continues. Political analysts Jamal Simmons and Paris Dennard discuss how the failure of the Republican health care overhaul on Friday has ricocheted politically on President Trump, House Speaker Paul Ryan and Democrats. Also, historian Nancy Tomes explains why problems with the health care system in the United States are nothing new, and how our uneven, expensive and complicated system came to be. And we turn to the latest in Russia, where hundreds of people were arrested in the country's biggest protests in years.
