President Trump declared Tuesday he's going to "let Obamacare fail" after the Republicans' effort to rewrite the 2010 health care overhaul imploded in Congress. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell proposed a vote on a backup plan simply repealing the statute, but desertions by his own party seemed to ensure that would fail, too.

Julie Rovner (@jrovner), senior correspondent for Kaiser Health News, joins Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson to discuss what's next on health care policy.
