With Republicans trying to reach a deal that would replace the Affordable Care Act, we’ll take a look at how much Wall Street cares about the health care rumble going on in Washington. Afterwards, we’ll discuss the psychology behind Amazon Prime Day, and then talk about concerns the LGBTQ community has about the Census Bureau’s decision not to ask questions related to gender identity or sexual orientation in its upcoming surveys. 

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