Iowa Analysts Discuss Future of GOP Healthcare Proposal

Mar 15, 2017

The White House is trying to salvage support for the Republican plan to revise the Affordable Care Act, as a growing number of lawmakers weigh in against the proposal.

On this edition of River to River, Ben Kieffer hosts a conversation on the plan with political analysts, Wayne Moyer of Grinnell College and Jim McCormick of Iowa State University.

They discuss the impact of the Congressional Budget Office analysis showing that 14 million fewer Americans would be insured next year under the GOP plan; Vice President Mike Pence's and Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price's backing of the proposal; as well as the dissatisfaction with the bill in both chambers, from conservatives and moderates alike.
