POLITICO's Pulse Check

The new GOP senator who wants to be a leader on health care

Episode Summary

Sen. Mike Braun arrived in Washington in January — and he's already frustrated with the state of the health care debate

Episode Notes

Just a year ago, Mike Braun was an underdog in the Republican primary for an Indiana Senate seat. Now he's a freshman senator, installed on the Senate's key health care committee — and pushing his own package of health reforms.

Braun joined POLITICO's Dan Diamond to explain his frustration over how Washington regulates the U.S. health system, his criticism of the latest effort to strike down the ACA and why he thinks more Republicans need to make health care a policy priority.
