What We’re Reading

We’re bummed that the Washington Post’s Peeps contest isn’t happening this year, which means we might have to make our own instead. While you and yours are getting sugar rushes this weekend, we recommend checking out these reads.

Check out this item-by-item breakdown of what the Trump Administration can do without Congress to dismantle the ACA.

A new Morning Consult/Politico poll finds that a plurality of voters now support single-payer, including 37% of Trump voters. The poll did not appear to ask Americans how much they would be willing to pay for such a program.

Supporters of single-payer come out in force this week to hold rallies in Boston and Kentucky.

The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget argues that the numbers don’t add up in Trump’s plan to use health reform to pay for tax reform.

Georgia Senator David Perdue now thinks that it’s time for a bipartisanship solution on health reform.

In the wake of the AHCA, some congressional Republicans have come around to support the ACA, including the chief Republican deputy whip who said, “There are a lot of provisions that I've campaigned on for four election cycles that are part of the law now that I want to preserve.”

A Democratic group is launching attack ads targeting Republicans who didn’t oppose the AHCA.

While on their in-district work period, many members of Congress are avoiding holding town halls so they don’t have to hear from Democratic and Republican activists, both upset over the AHCA but for very different reasons.

A former Republican White House and RNC staffer writes that Congress should slap a “DNR: Do Not Resuscitate” over the AHCA and move on following the failure to hold a vote on the bill last month.

The invisible risk-sharing program that was added as an amendment to the AHCA may look a lot like this program in Alaska.

Health Affairs takes a look at the recent reports by the Treasury inspector general for tax administration on individual and employer tax returns.

For the low price of $199, it will now be possible to learn if you are genetically predisposed to certain diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Here’s what you should know before sending in your sample to 23andMe.

The Atlantic breaks down the study that taking a hot bath burns as many calories as a 30-minute walk.

Diabetes may be the third leading cause of death among Americans, responsible for 12% of deaths in the U.S. and not 3.3% as previously thought. We’ll put those peeps away now.
