How the 2018 Midterm Elections Change Health Care

November 12, 2018

Health care expert Sarah Lee speaks on what she sees coming in the wake of Democrats winning the House of Representatives in the 2018 midterms.

The Heartland Institute's Health Care Research Fellow Sarah Lee sits on the other side of the mic this week. She discusses how the Trump administration has taken many steps to undo much of the damage caused by Obamacare. This includes allowing for the sale of association health plans and the expansion of short-term plans, a plan to lower drug prices, and pushing transparency and the "right to try". Lee says the state-led Obamacare suit attempting to declare the law unconstitutional will play a role in which direction things move following the Democrat's win in the House.
