Ilisa Halpern Paul Quoted in National Journal Regarding GOP Health Agenda Delays

October 18, 2017

District Policy Group President Ilisa Halpern Paul was quoted in a National Journal article titled “Obamacare Uncertainty Bogs Down GOP Health Agenda.” The article examines the delays in health care reform developments since Congress was unable to pass a “repeal and replace” measure for the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Ilisa noted, “I think it’s challenging right now for the Republicans in Congress to create a game plan in health care.” 
The article explains that several items that previously had strong bipartisan support, such as the reauthorization of funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program and community health centers, have fallen to the wayside as ACA debates continue.
