The drama over James B. Comey’s testimony Thursday before the Senate Intelligence Committee isn’t the only excitement playing out on Capitol Hill today.
A lower-profile fight involving the House health-care bill and whether it can go over to the Senate is not exactly Comey vs. Trump on charges of Russian election interference. But it is critical to how — and whether — the Affordable Care Act gets a makeover anytime soon. It also shows just how ridiculously hard it is to replace big parts of the health-care law even with one-party Republican control of Washington.
