For the 14th episode, we take a deep dive into Obamacare, with nationally recognized expert Avik Roy, the President of the Foundation for Research in Equal Opportunity (FREOPP). We discussed the policy choices facing the Republicans, including the overall number of Americans covered, tax subsidies, means testing, Medicaid expansion, portability, and the potential for a 50 state marketplace. We also considered the politics of the issue and delved into legislative procedure to look forward. Finally, we talked about why he started his own think tank and what he wishes to accomplish with it.
