Rachel Abrams from The New York Times and Sheelah Kolhatkar from The New Yorker join us to discuss the week’s business and economic news. Now that Senate Republicans have unveiled their health care plan, a bill drafted in secret, we look at the potential impact it will have on low-income earners and how it could redistribute wealth to the rich.

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