The Health Care Autopsy Episode

With the explosion of the American Health Care Act now nearly a full week behind us, one question remains: What now?

Mixed signals from the White House, the uncertain fate of tax reform, and a health care system still on a downward slope means the issue can’t simply be swept under the rug.  That’s why we’ve brought in Ryan Ellis, Forbes contributor and co-founder of the Repeal Coalition, to dissect what went wrong and how Conservatives can navigate the shaky waters ahead.

    It bothers me when people, such as Mr. Ellis here, start out by misrepresenting their opponents position.  Ellis represented that “some people” thought we had to repeal every ‘jot and tittle’ of Obamacare and that was the only way.   And the he goes on to speak with disdain about conservatives’ concern about “breach of purity”.   Ellis’ contempt was dripping.

    Toward the end, Mr Ellis talks about moving on to Tax Reform.  I agree that this is needed, but he harkens back to the healthcare bill, saying that we needed have had a ‘win’ on that by putting something that is passable  on the table to move on to the critical tax reform.   Well, the healthcare bill was really critical to me – it was important that we got it right – not just put an easily passable bill on the table so we could move on to tax reform.
