Top Experts Address Issues Raised by New GOP Obamacare Replacement Bill
|WASHINGTON, D.C. -- As they discussed the content of the new GOP Obamacare replacement bill released less than 24 hours earlier, members of both panels of the "Health Reform and the Future of the Individual Insurance Market" forum in Washington, D.C., emphasized that the proposal left many questions unanswered. Keynote speaker Stephen Parente, PhD, MPH, pointed out that the bill is actually a budget reconciliation maneuver rather than "true" repeal and replace legislation. It can only affect elements of Obamacare that are germane to the budget. Below are brief video excerpts from panel members' remarks.|
