Philip Klein is managing editor at the Washington Examiner and author of the book, “Overcoming Obamacare.” Klein helps us navigate the Republicans’ health care plan presented by Paul Ryan this week, and the difficulties behind both the policy and the politicsĀ of “repeal and replace.”

“Politically you have this situation in which you had to figure out legislation that’s going to unite factions within the House, within the Senate, where you have a fragile majority and you’re trying to get something through,” he said.

Later in the hour Klein explains the debates over tax deductions vs. tax credits, pre-existing conditions, and medicaid expansion.
