Despite Sen. Ted Cruz’s marathon speech lasting more than 21 straight hours, the Senate has moved forward on a temporary spending measure, allowing for Senate Democrats to amend the bill and restore funding for Obamacare.
Amid the Senate action, the Obama administration released data today that provides the first look into predicted rates for those purchasing insurance through federally run exchanges. The release has the administration touting that premiums will cost less, but disputes still remain over the plan’s overall costs.
Tonight, U.S. Senators Saxby Chambliss, an Obamacare opponent, and Bob Casey, a supporter, join hosts Stephanie Cutter and S.E. Cupp to break down the costs associated with the controversial health care law and the political impact of Sen. Cruz’s big speech.
