Jim Capretta on “repeal and delay”

Jim Capretta is the Milton Friedman Chair at the American Enterprise Institute.  He came out to join our 2017 Washington State of Reform Health Policy Conference on January 5th.

Capretta is one of the more respected conservative thought leaders in the country.  We outlined some of his thinking in a previous post.

In his keynote comments, Capretta walked through the latest thinking among the Trump administration and leaders in Congress.  He spent significant time on what he calls the current thinking of “repeal and delay.”  Capretta said Republican leaders think that strategy will bring Democrats to the table to negotiate.  However, Capretta also said he believed this approach would bring “chaos” to the insurance markets.
