Now that Senate Republicans have released the draft for their bill on health care reform, we’ll recap how the markets are doing. Chris Low, chief economist at FTN Financial, joined us to explain why health care stocks have been reacting positively. (Hint: It’s not expected to actually pass.) Afterwards, we’ll look at what Japan and the European Union have in store for their free-trade agreement, and then explore some of the questions U.S. mayors have surrounding Trump’s infrastructure promises.
