Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden (@RonWyden) is the ranking Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee, which on Thursday is putting final touches on the Senate GOP tax cut plan.

Wyden tells Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson that Republicans have "turned a badly flawed tax bill into an even worse bill, because they have made it a health care bill" by adding a measure to it this week that would repeal the Affordable Care Act's individual health insurance mandate.

This segment aired on November 16, 2017.
