Tension Inside The Capitol as Senate Releases GOP Health Care Bill
Lawmakers, journalists and protesters filled the U.S. Capitol Thursday as Senate Republicans released a health care overhaul bill.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell arrives in his office in the U.S. Capitol on June 22, 2017 in Washington. McConnell and fellow GOP senators met today to review a draft of proposed health care legislation that they released to the public Thursday afternoon. The bill represents the party's long-awaited attempt to scuttle much of the Affordable Care Act.
