Dr. Jonathan Gruber. Major architect of Obama Care Act (he also wrote the Romney Care Act and Single Payer Vermont Legislation). We live in confusing times, especially surrounding health care policy. It’s difficult to understand the realities of health care legislation, especially since elected polarized representatives report highly conflicting facts about the differences between ObamaCare and Repeal and Replace.

I invited Dr. Gruber, a co-architect of ObamaCare, to come on the show to discuss the differences between these bills and how you and I can better protect ourselves or understand potential choices.

Dr. Jonathan Gruber was a top adviser on our present health care legislation that goes by various names such as The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or, colloquially, Obamacare.

For much of his career, Dr. Gruber has been crafting public health policy. He was a key architect of the 2006 Massachusetts health care reform, often referred to as "Romneycare" and he also crafted and advocated for the “Single-Payer and Unified Health System” bill in Vermont. There has been some controversy over Gruber’s choice of words, but none about his being one of the most agile economic health thinkers of our times.

Dr. Gruber compares ObamaCare to Repeal and Replace as well as single payer health care systems. We discuss the original intentions of Obama Care and why there have been issues with it. Scoring of legislation, called a Congressional Budget Office analysis, it’s acronym—CBO, is explained.

If you want any new health legislation to retain any of the above, or address issues that none have done so far, or remove aspects you don’t agree with, please contact your local representatives and send them an email or call their office.

We live in a time where town meetings and single voices are being heard and can make a difference!

I asked Dr. Gruber to guide my readers to articles to better understand the new repeal and replace and Dr. G kindly supplied these links: http://fortune.com/2017/05/04/obamacare-repeal-vote-how-many-ahca-trumpcare-bill-american-health-care-act-pre-existing-conditions/

Dr. Gruber has a new 100 page comic book out that summarizes his understandings of these issues in an easy to read manner that you can buy right here. https://www.amazon.com/Health-Care-Reform-Necessary-Works/dp/0809053977/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1494695154&sr=8-1&keywords=jonathan+gruber
