Program: Can Trump and the GOP still cause the ACA to fail?
Speaker: Dr. Lawrence Sweet
The Senate's effort to repeal and replace the ACA collapsed in late July, but Trump has already signaled that he is ready to "let Obamacare implode" so that another effort to unwind the ACA can resume. Many questions about the future of the ACA remain, including: 1) Is the ACA failing? Could it fall apart on its own? 2) How can the Trump administration hobble the ACA without Congressional legislation? 3) Instead of destroying the ACA, what could be done to strengthen it? Dr. Sweet will discuss these questions and others relating to the ongoing struggle for health reform in our nation.
