The Affordable Care Act under the Trump Administration

Professor Emeritus, Washington and Lee University

The Affordable Care Act resulted in a significant expansion of health care coverage to working-age Americans. What has happened-and is likely to happen-to this expansion, and to the people whom it helped, under the Trump Administration?
Tim Jost will provide a description of recent suggested and enacted changes in healthcare legislation in the past year. During the second half of this session, participants will be encouraged to engage in a discussion on the ethical considerations that we as Anabaptists have regarding healthcare legislation. There will also be a time for questions.
