In hour two of Here & Now's Oct. 27, 2017 full broadcast, the House on Thursday narrowly passed a budget resolution, paving the way for the GOP to work out the details of its tax overhaul plan. We discuss what's next with NPR's Susan Davis. Also, musicians both on the mainland and in Puerto Rico are recording songs of hope and inspiration to raise money for Hurricane Maria relief efforts. José Massó, host of the Latin music show ¡Con Salsa!, joins us to listen to some of the music that's helping people cope. And amid GOP Sens. Jeff Flake and Bob Corker speaking out against President Trump, we take a look at just how common it is for retiring or former political leaders to sound an alarm about the direction of their own party. You can read and hear more at, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook and Tumblr.
