The Future of the ACA

Listen 00:48:58

Guests: Dan Diamond, James Carpetta, Mollyann Brodie

As promised since the Affordable Care Act was enacted in 2010, Republicans have vowed to abolish it.  In this hour of Radio Times, we’ll talk about the future of the Affordable Care Act — efforts to repeal and reform it and what Americans say they want from the health care law.  We’ll start off talking about congressional efforts to “repeal and delay” the Affordable Care Act with DAN DIAMOND, who covers health care policy for Politico and writes “Pulse.”  Then we’ll hear from JAMES CAPRETTA of the American Enterprise Institute about how the Democrats and Republicans might find common ground on the law.  And finally, MOLLYANN BRODIE from the Kaiser Family Foundation explains the findings of recent polls exploring what Americans’ want from their health insurance and their health care.
