This weekly podcast features (as always) interviews, debates, and roundtable discussions that explore the work of think tanks across the country. The show is available for download as part of the Heartland Daily Podcast every Friday. Today’s podcast features work from the Hudson Institute, the Cato Institute, and the Pacific Research Institute.

Since Justin is well versed in the topic of Healthcare policy, Donny asks him about the latest in the fight to repeal and replace Obamacare. Justin fills us in on the latest and predicts what the future is for this legislation. 

Donny and Justin also reference an article from the Pacific Research Institute titled "Why Trump Should be Happy That the GOP's 'Repeal-and-Delay' is Dead." This article explains why a "repeal-and-delay" strategy may not be best.
