The latest attempt to repeal and replace the ACA was declared dead with Tuesday’s announcement by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) that they will not be holding a vote on the Graham-Cassidy plan. On this week’s podcast, NAHU Vice Presidents of Congressional Affairs John Greene and Chris Hartmann and Vice President of Government Affairs Marcy M. Buckner walk us through what happened with the proposal and why it failed to get a vote. The podcast also addresses some of the issues the arise from the bill’s demise, like the potential to resume bipartisan market stability talks, what happens with tax reform and could healthcare could make its way into it, and whether Republicans will pursue healthcare reform again with future reconciliation vehicles, including the next one when it becomes available in 2018.
