AEI Scholars available for comment on today's ACA Repeal Vote

As the House prepares for a largely symbolic vote today to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), American Enterprise Institute (AEI) health care policy experts James (Jim) Capretta, Thomas (Tom) Miller, and Joseph (Joe) Antos are available to discuss the serious problems that remain in trying to implement  the ACA and the clear policy alternatives to the health care law.


Capretta, Miller and Antos point out that:

 

  • While many assume that the Supreme Court's ruling has paved a smooth road to full implementation of the ACA, that road remains uncertain and full of obstacles.  States have a variety of ways to stall, oppose, or opt out of certain parts of the law, and there are still a variety of legal challenges to the full implementation of the law scheduled for 2014.

 

  • There is no doubt that the case to repeal the Affordable Care Act would be stronger if the Republicans offered more tangible plans to replace the ACA and improve future health care.

 

Jim Capretta ([email protected]) has worked on health care policy at the White House’s Office of Management and Budget, at the Senate Budget Committee and at the House Committee on Ways and Means. Tom Miller ([email protected]) is a former trial lawyer and a former senior health economist for the Joint Economic Committee in Congress. He heads the Beyond Repeal and Replace project at AEI. Economist Joe Antos ([email protected]) is a health adviser to the Congressional Budget Office where he also previously served as an Assistant Director for Health and Human Resources.


Also available to comment on the impact of the ACA are AEI scholars Scott Gottlieb, M.D. (on doctors) [email protected] and J.D. Kleinke (on businesses) [email protected].
