    This week in Washington, the House of Representatives considered the ‘American Health Care Act’ (AHCA). In the end this legislation, intended to repeal and replace the ‘Affordable Care Act’ (ACA) was pulled and never received a vote. The result is that the ACA remains, for now, the law of the land. Personally, I am disappointed in this outcome. I truly believe the ACA is a terribly flawed piece of legislation and that we can do better.

The bill spread the cost of doing this through a techniq... Read more
