The Congressional Budget Office is set to release its assessment of the GOP’s new health care bill this afternoon. The CBO estimated 24 million would lose health insurance under the first draft of this plan. We’ll examine whether fewer people will lose coverage under the most recent proposal. Afterwards, we’ll discuss a downgrade in China’s creditworthiness, and look at how the United States’ new fiduciary rule works. 

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.
