President Trump announced on Thursday night that his administration would end the subsidies provided to health insurance companies through Obamacare that reduce premiums for lower-income Americans. We talk about what that means, paired with Trump's executive order on health care, which he says is designed to increase competition and choice.

Plus, we talk about the continuing fallout after allegations of sexual harassment and sexual assault against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. And new federal data shows in 2016, Boston commuter rail trains had the most mechanical failures in the country.
