The new chair of the influential Health Subcommittee for the Ways and Means Committee, Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX, of course), is guaranteeing that the fights for Medicare vouchers and killing Obamacare will continue.
[...] Brady says he’ll return to some ideas Democrats have outright rejected — including the premium support model Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) has famously advocated for. [...]
Earnestly leaning forward over a table in his Capitol Hill office, Brady ticked through his to-do list for the coming year.
First, he wants to ditch parts of the health care law. A handful of Democrats have already signed on to some of his suggestions, such as repealing the Independent Payment Advisory Board and the medical device tax. [...]
He also plans to spend time highlighting the law’s new regulations and how they’ll affect health providers, patients and employers.
And while he acknowledges the law won’t be repealed anytime soon, it’s clear he hasn’t let go of that hope for sometime down the road.
