Intelligence hearings

Two of the country’s highest-ranking intelligence officials could shed light this morning on the extent of Russia’s interference in the U.S. presidential election. FBI Director James Comey and the director of the National Security Agency, Mike Rogers, will be questioned by members of the House Intelligence committee.

Judge Gorsuch

Judge Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation hearings to be the next Supreme Court justice begin today with opening statements by members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, as well as by Gorsuch. As the hearings kick off, we’ve got a refresher on what you need to know about Gorsuch.

Boss’s business?

Concern is growing over a bill that would let companies request genetic testing and effectively charge employees more for health insurance if they refuse. The bill aims to clarify rules for workplace wellness programs but, as we hear, some say it would effectively amount to a penalty for privacy.

Health care costs

As a Republican bill to repeal and replace Obamacare hits the House floor, older Americans may want to brace themselves. Experts say health care consumers aged 50 to 64 -- old enough to have serious health care needs but too young for Medicare -- may well see a significant increase in costs.

Cash cushion

Although the U.S. economy is on the mend, millions of American families remain financially vulnerable to sudden swings in income that can make it hard to deal with an emergency expense. But how much money should people have stashed away to ensure they can cope with the unexpected?  

“She Persisted”

The Clintons, America’s foremost would-be presidential dynasty, are apparently sticking around. Chelsea Clinton has new children’s book in the works, called “She Persisted.” Hillary persists as well, saying last week that she wants to “come out of the woods” and rejoin public life. Where’s the audience for all this Clinton stuff, Will Rahn wonders?

Dave Chappelle

Comedian Dave Chappelle has been making people laugh for 30 years. His career exploded with two seasons of “Chappelle’s Show” on Comedy Central, but he suddenly abandoned the show at the height of his success. Now he’s back, and he’s opening up to “CBS This Morning” about how escaping to his small hometown in Ohio makes him a better comic.
