Are con­gres­sional Dems, GOP also ready to ac­cept a com­pro­mise?

Modern Healthcare - - COMMENT -

Re­gard­ing the ar­ti­cle “Obama would ac­cept ACA re­peal if GOP came up with a good plan” (Mod­ern­Health­care.com, Jan. 6), as a physi­cian who wants a strong U.S. health­care sys­tem, I am greatly en­cour­aged by Pres­i­dent Barack Obama’s will­ing­ness to ac­cept a re­peal of Oba­macare if an­other good health plan could re­place it. Will Democrats in the House and Se­nate be as will­ing to give up “their plan” in fa­vor of a bi­par­ti­san com­pro­mise bill? Will Repub­li­cans in the House and Se­nate be as will­ing to reach a bi­par­ti­san com­pro­mise in­stead of a “Repub­li­can plan” forced on the Democrats?

The sta­bil­ity of our econ­omy de­mands a well-planned U.S. health­care sys­tem that both par­ties are will­ing to im­ple­ment and im­prove to­gether. Any­thing else is a fail­ure for the Amer­i­can peo­ple. Dr. Robert Luedecke
