In this episode I check in with regular guest, Christopher Snider, for our bimonthly podcast freakout about all things Trump, health policy, and how we’re dealing.
We talk more about the state of Obamacare/ACA’s repeal and replace plan, the AHCA (aka Ryancare, Trumpcare, Republicare, etc.) We discuss the bill’s CBO score, another proposed bill flying under the radar that would allow your employer to require genetic testing and have access to those results, ALEC, and his newest podcast project, Mark All That Apply.
