Senate Republicans are still trying to reach consensus on overhauling health care. Their focus now is on a so-called "skinny repeal" of the Affordable Care Act, which would eliminate a few key aspects of Obamacare.

Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson talks with Julie Rovner (@jrovner), chief Washington correspondent for Kaiser Health News, about the ongoing debate over how to repeal and replace parts of the ACA, and what a skinny repeal might look like.

This segment aired on July 27, 2017.
