The News Roundup

After another unsuccessful attempt at repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, the GOP is pushing a drastic overhaul of the tax code as healthcare legislative success won't come easy - if at all. Meanwhile, people seeking to travel to the U.S. face new hurdles and the president is planning to visit Puerto Rico, where millions of Americans are recovering from devastation brought by Hurricane Maria. Internationally, the airport in Kabul, Afghanistan was the target of a rocket attack this week and ISIS has left the Syrian city of Raqqa devastated, with efforts to reclaim the city from the terror group resulting in countless fatalities of civilians. Discussing the week's top news stories are Fernando Pizarro, Washington correspondent at Univision, Shawna Thomas, Washington bureau chief at Vice News, Ed O'Keefe, congressional correspondent at The Washington Post, Peter Bergen, national security analyst at CNN, Gillian Turner, Fox News contributor and Clemens Wergin, Washington bureau chief at Die Welt, a moderately conservative German newspaper.
