Republicans Health Care
In this March 28, 2017, photo, Mary Broecker, 76, speaks during an interview in LaGrange, Ky., at a coffee shop on Main Street, where trains run right through the middle of town. She is president of The Oldham County Republican Women’s Club, and has unbending support for Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., who famously changed his vote against the AHCA from “No” to “Hell No.” Defying President Donald Trump on the Republican Party’s promise to repeal and replace Obamacare sounds like political suicide, especially in the congressional districts Trump won handily. But some Republicans who blocked the legislation won praise from constituents for stopping what many saw as a flawed plan, either in the legislation’s substance or strategy. (AP Photo/Dylan T. Lovan)

New MS Drug
This photo provided by Genentech shows the company's drug Ocrevus. Late Tuesday, March 28, 2017, the Food and Drug Administration approved Ocrevus, the first drug for an aggressive kind of multiple sclerosis that steadily reduces coordination and the ability to walk. While there are more than a dozen treatments for the most common form of MS, there's been nothing specifically for people with the type called primary progressive MS. That type of MS is relatively rare, affecting about 50,000 Americans. Ocrevus was also approved for relapsing forms of MS, which progress more slowly. (Genentech via AP)
