  Republicans in Congress are attempting to keep their long-standing promise to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. They say the ACA is a disaster and likely to implode. Democrats warn that millions of people will lose access to affordable health care if the repeal passes. We’re going to talk about it on Access Utah today. What should our health care system look like? Is healthcare a right? Is the ACA a massive deficit-busting entitlement program? If you prefer a more market-based system how would that work? How do we promote a system that reduces costs and expands coverage?

We’d especially love to hear your experience. Where do you get your health care? How’s that part of your life working?

We’ll be talking with Rep. Greg Hughes, R-Draper, Speaker of the Utah House of Representatives; Rep. Jim Dunnigan, R-Taylorsville, House Chairman of the Health Reform Task Force; and Jason Stevenson, Education and Communications Director with the Utah Health Policy Project.
