In hour two of Here & Now's Oct. 19, 2017 full broadcast, we speak with Kathleen Sebelius, who was secretary of Health and Human Services from 2009 to 2014 under former President Obama, about the latest health care news and the Affordable Care Act's future under President Trump. Also, one of the youngest victims in the Northern California wildfires was 14-year-old Kai Logan Shepherd of Redwood Valley. Mindi Ramos, Shepherd's aunt, joins us to discuss how the family is coping. And there are many lingering questions about the mission that ended in the deaths of four American soldiers in Niger earlier this month. We take a closer look with NPR's Greg Myre.
