CVS Gets Into The Health Care Business; Tax Bill Trickle-Down

Dec 6, 2017

In a move that signals a shift in the health care market, CVS/Health announced a $69 billion deal to buy Aetna - the third largest insurer in the nation. This would be one of the biggest health care deals of all time, and would leave Aetna CEO Mark Bertolini with a sweet $500 million payout.

While the U.S. Senate and the House come to an agreement on the GOP tax bill, Democrats are trying to figure out next steps to avoid what some are calling blue-state "devastation." 

This hour, we talk about what's in the bill and what it might mean for Connecticut. 

And candidates for governor and attorney general are making themselves known... and doing a little flip flopping.
