BRETT BAIER (Fox News Channel’s chief political anchor and anchor of "Special Report with Bret Baier") When Barack Obama took office, he inherited a professional, world-class, battle-toughened military. Seven years later, many experts see the U.S. armed forces as a tattered and demoralized organization.

DR. RICHARD HIMELFARB (Associate director of political science at Hofstra University and author of, "Catastrophic Politics: The Rise and Fall of the Medicare Catastrophic Coverage Act of 1988.") It has been a rough week for Donald Trump’s camp. From the GOP frontrunner’s most recent comments on abortion, his campaign manager facing battery charges to Trump denouncing his previous agreement to support the eventual nominee, there can be a fractured party after a possible GOP convention.

DEB POLUN (Director of government affairs and media relations for the Community Health Center Association of Connecticut) LIVE IN THE TALK OF CONNECTICUT STUDIO There is a brewing health care crisis in Connecticut, and it involves the state’s poorest and most vulnerable population of people. The mission and mandate of Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) is to provide healthcare services to everyone who needs them. Right now as part of the Governor’s budget-cutting proposals, $1.4 million in state funding to FQHCs has been rescinded, which means losing an additional $2.4 million in matching federal funds. These FQHCs services would have to be reduced, jobs could be lost and the essential access to health care could be severely compromised. FQHCs across the state are working with state lawmakers to show them just how critical these services are and just how painful these cuts would be.
