ObamaCare: How Will We Repeal and Replace It?

RISE presented a four-person expert panel that delivered a powerful, jam-packed 90-minute program on this hot topic.  If you missed this one and have an interest in better understanding what is likely to happen, what is doable and what isn’t, then you should list to the recording of our webinar below.

Lisa DiSalvo began with a thorough and compelling outline of proposals on policy currently under consideration, competing for favor in the jockeying process now underway in the new administration in Washington, D.C.  Following her presentation was Richard Lieberman analyzing the political context and outlook for solving the challenge posed by the incoming administration that wishes to achieve many of the same goals as ObamaCare while spinning their own preferences into the recipe. 

Sean Creighton tackled the daunting financial projections originating in the Congressional Budget Office, and helped us understand the intricate linkages and dynamic economic factors knitted together in the realities of our national health care economy.  His insights as a former CMS executive lent credibility to his observations and comments.  John Criswell brought it all home with the wrap-up analysis on the prospects for a sustainable and workable marketplace for individual and small group insurance coverage.  His sense of what the business side is going to tolerate, along with the demand features of a restructured marketplace, makes for sobering consideration.

It’s not Obamacare anymore. It’s our national health-care system.

By Drew Altman and Larry Levitt July 29 Drew Altman is president and chief executive of the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation. Larry Levitt is senior vice president of the Kaiser Foundation. Republicans failed to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act early Friday because of divisions within their own ranks, and because they tried not only to repeal and replace the ACA but also to cut and cap the Medicaid program, generating opposition from many red-state governors and their senators. But most of all, they failed because they built their various plans on the false claim — busted by the Congressional Budget Office — that they could maintain the same coverage levels as the ACA and lower premiums and deductibles, while at the same time slashing about a trillion dollars from Medicaid and ACA subsidies and softening the ACA’s consumer protection regulations. Had they succeeded, they would have won a big short-term victory with their base, which strongly supports repeal, but suffered the consequences in subsequent elections as the same voters lost coverage or were hit with higher premiums and deductibles. ...

Where to Now? True North Again

By Kevin Mowll, Executive Director of the RISE Association The failure of the Republicans to repeal, replace, or wreck ObamaCare is a wakeup call for everyone, not just Republicans. While the RISE Association steers away from purely political commentary, the lesson of this protracted political mess needs to be called out for the sake of putting our priorities straight around public policy regarding healthcare reform. In the attached Wall Street Journal article, which suggests that bipartisan solutions are the only remaining way forward, the author proffers hope that the blistering truth will be obvious to all the participants in the 7-year-long fracas around repeal and replace. The bloodied players may still brood in frustration that their political wills were not enough to win, but the author wonders if cooler heads will prevail. I, for one, am not so sanguine; yet I can only hope. https://www.wsj.com/articles/republicans-search-for-answers-can-they-find-any-across-the-aisle-1501259286 The lesson I take away from the many years of wrangling is that the ObamaCare political football games demonstrates that political wills are not the way forward. They lose sight of the True North issue at hand. Rather, the failures of both political parties in arriving at a bipartisan solution signals the fact that what is good for America is good healthcare policy, not political prowess over rivals. Governing from the fringe is not sustainable in a democracy. ...
