Health care, tax reform and a million-dollar beggar; here’s what’s On Our Radar today:
Health Care Debacle
Welp, that didn’t go as planned. After weeks of discussion, the GOP failed to get their version of affordable health care, aka TrumpCare, brought to a vote. In a last-minute decision on Friday, House Speaker Paul Ryan yanked the bill from the agenda. The Freedom Caucus, a conservative congressional caucus, was just one of the groups that said it didn’t do enough to strip the bill of Obamacare’s leftovers. Now, Wall Street is uneasy over White House policies going forward, and investors seem a bit cautious.

Forget health care, now Trump is turning his attention to taxes; an issue closer to his heart he says. However, it will be tough for lawmakers to cut taxes without adding to the already growing federal deficit. In an effort to get tax reform passed, the White House has signaled it is willing to reach across the aisle and work with moderate Democrats.
Neil Cavuto gets insight on the steps toward tax reform from Rep. Mike Kelly at 12 p.m. EST.
