Earlier this week the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office released an updated cost estimate of the Affordable Care Act commonly referred to as Obamacare. Earlier this year, CBO anticipated the cost to be nearly twice expensive as originally anticipated. The new score tells a different story, contrasting with the previous one, and reflecting the impact of the Supreme Court ruling allowing states to opt out of the Medicaid Expansion. The Medicaid expansion was the second most expensive part of the bill, and it has caused heartburn for Governors and State Legislators alike because of added costs. Senator John Barrasso, an orthopedic surgeon, and United States Senator from Wyoming joined me on America’s Healthcare Challenge. Our candid conversation his reaction to the updated CBO numbers, how he thinks legislation will impact his physician colleagues and some of his ideas for fixing the plagued American healthcare system.
