Unbalanced PA budget/Healthcare overhaul

Listen 00:49:00

Guests: Katie Meyer, Sarah Karlin-Smith, Robert Field

For the second year in a row, Governor Tom Wolf allowed an unbalanced budget to become law without his signature. Lawmakers failed to agree on a plan on how to cover a nearly $2 billion deficit. In this hour, Mary Cummings-Jordan talks with KATIE MEYER, state capitol bureau chief for Pennsylvania public radio stations, about what this means for Pennsylvania. Then, we’ll get an update on the GOP effort to overhaul the Affordable Care Act. SARAH KARLIN-SMITH, health care reporter for POLITICO and ROBERT FIELD, Drexel University law professor and health policy expert discuss what this means for American healthcare.
