THOUGHTS ON REPLACING THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT: Byron Dorgan

Byron Dorgan
Former US Senator
State of North Dakota

Former North Dakota Senator Byron Dorgan joined Mike McNamara yesterday on MacTalk to share his ideas about The Trump Administration, the Affordable Care Act and our Nation’s nuclear agreements.

Dorgan also voiced concern for a national political climate where “compromise is the lubricant that makes democracy work,” yet “compromise is a four letter word these days” in Washington D.C. “If you do start compromising and finding middle ground you’ll have a primary opponent” Dorgan stated in a matter of fact tone.

The former North Dakota Democratic Senator also  predicted that the Affordable Care Act won’t easily be replaced, simply because the task is complex and the most conservative members of the Republican Party won’t be interested in creating a new entitlement to subsidized health insurance.  Listen as he explains the “why’s” of this complex debate.
