Health care is the topic of conversation on a national and local scale with states like Minnesota and Nevada talking about proposed or possible changes to their coverage.

Meanwhile, California leaders are pondering the impact federal law could have on Covered California if the current system is revised. There is much uncertainty after Thursday's vote from the House to pass a new health care bill.

Political Junkie Ken Rudin discusses what happens and what's to come next possibly with the Affordable Care Act, the author of which alluded to the new bill it Sunday night when he received an award in Boston.

Former President Barack Obama was given the Profile in Courage for restoring relations with Cuba, health care reform and clean air efforts.

President Trump's first 100 days, immigration, North Korea's nuclearization, and the French Presidential election are also topics of conversation in this week's Political Junkie.
