Side Affects Episode 33: The GOP Health Care Proposal

In This Episode

The Republican answer to repeal-and-replace addresses some of the failings of the Affordable Care Act. But will the solutions just create another set of problems? ERISA attorney Paul Routh joins Scott and Anne Marie to examine some of the changes in the proposed legislation, including the elimination of the employer and the individual mandates. While it’s looking less likely that the legislation will pass in its current form, this information will set the stage for what’s to come.
