Ex-CBO director Voices Opinions on ACA and HealthCare Reform

Doug Elmendorf, the former director of the Congressional Budget Office from 2009 to 2015, did an interview with Yahoo Finance where he voiced opinions on the ACA and healthcare reform.

In short, he said [paraphrasing] that ObamaCare is working and attempts to drastically change the system rather than improve it were misguided.

In a sense he was speaking not only to the Republican attempts to dismantle healthcare reform, but to Progressive attempts to expand the system into Medicare-For-All.

In my opinion the best way to fully understand Doug’s stance is to check out the interview which can be found on Yahoo!’s Ex-CBO director: Obamacare ‘is working’ and we’ve ‘wasted almost a decade’ trying to dismantle it.
