Here's What You Need to Start Your Day
Good Tuesday morning!
Here areÂ five things you need to know for today:
- Today is the day: The Georgia special election for the congressional seat vacated by Tom Price, now Trump's HHS Secretary. If Republican Karen Handel wins, it will be seen as a referendum in support of Trump's policies. But if Democrat Jon Ossoff wins, it will be seen as total repudiation of Trump, especially his health care "plan," which is a massive tax cut for the rich. Literally, the future of your health care and mine is at stake. If Ossoff wins it will send a strong message to Republicans. And if you think it won't affect you because you have an employer plan, think again:
