Last quote by Andy Slavitt

We are past any point of any reasonable person being able to give the administration the benefit of the doubt. Next time Sen.[Lindsay] Graham [R-S.C.] tries to make the case for slashing health care for low-income people, kids, and older people by pointing to a 'failing' ACA, we should all remember these stories of blowing up the ACA bit by bit. We should never allow partisan sabotage to build the case for further destructive partisan actions. Let's make the administration account for these steps and elect lawmakers who will pledge to work in a bipartisan fashion.feedback

Mar 16 2017 - Trumpcare

Nobody I know really cares whether we call it Obamacare or Trumpcare or Ryancare, and quite frankly, we'll end up in a better world when we call it none of those things. It wasn't great for Democrats to be the only ones owning coverage reform. Republicans are finding out it isn't great either. Everybody can own this together, because there will inevitably be challenges.feedback

Mar 08 2017

Feb 15 2017

I think we should be encouraged by the signal that the administration wants to stabilize the market. Right now, the greatest uncertainty is whether or not the individual mandate, which is the principal driver to help keep costs lower, is going to be enforced. Within the next month, insurers have to start submitting rates and deciding where they're going to participate. It's very hard to do that if you don't know the rules of the road. It's very hard to do that if you don't know how your competitors are interpreting the rules of the road.feedback

Feb 15 2017 - Obamacare

If the administration is serious about strengthening the [Obamacare] marketplace, they will reduce uncertainty and focus on keeping the marketplace stable and growing – not focus on changes that will raise deductibles, reduce access to physicians and put limitations on the ability for people to get coverage.feedback
