Podcast: The Latest On Republican Efforts To Overhaul Obamacare

Health care experts, Avik Roy and Chris Jacobs, join Federalist Radio Hour to break down where Congress stands on their attempt to repeal Obamacare.


Chatter continues on Capitol Hill about making another attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare. Avik Roy, president of the Foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity, joins Ben Domenech on the Federalist Radio Hour to explain the health care positions of GOP leadership, the moderates, and the Freedom Caucus.

“Try to fix it in the House before you send it to the Senate,” Roy said. “We’ve got to take the time to get this right, because if we get this wrong, we will never live to see another major attempt by Republicans at health reform.”

Chris Jacobs, policy analyst and consultant, also joins the conversation to explain how picking and choosing the good or bad regulations from Obamacare would create an incoherent market. “The Congressional Budget Office has said that there would actually be more uninsured under the House bill than if you had just repealed the law outright, including all the regulations,” Jacobs said.
