By admin on September 26, 2017 | Listed under Heathcare Reform | Leave a comment |

Where are we (the Congress) on taking on repeal and replacement of the ACA law as of  09/20/2017 ?

This is a good question with no clear or easy answers.   ( “darn”   – jcl)

See the three videos and  ALL the good links for more info to help you see what is going on and try to get some understanding of it all. There is a lot and this is a big deal, to make changes to the health care systems in the USA. I work to keep up with what is going on and try to keep myself informed and continue to put up relevant info as I can on this blog.

  1. Do see the Chart that Ms. Desjardins and pbs have provided.
  2. Watch all the short videos below and especially the last one.

The above is from Wed 09/20/2017 pbs Newhour show
