In hour two of Here & Now's June 22, 2017 full broadcast, Republican leaders in the Senate on Thursday unveiled their health care bill after weeks of secrecy.

Also, there's been record-breaking heat across much of the U.S. this week, and in the Southwest all that heat means people are blasting their air conditioners day and night.
